    Is it possible for you to set a few different feathers into one piece? Like if I were to mail you 3 different colored feathers from my birds, could you make one piece with them all in it(and have them all visible)?

    ETA: and does it have to be down feathers? My favorite hen was 'taken' a while back and all i have left is a couple of her tail feathers..

    I have made a few with more than one feather. I have one that I made to look like a yin-yang symbol for myself to match part of a tattoo my husband has. I used a black and a brown feather. it turned out pretty nice. I get a lot of compliments when I wear it. ( i don't have a picture of it though) So yes it could work. I am getting in rectangular bezels this week that are 1x2 inches and I could easily set more than one feather in those I'm sure. I do have a picture of another one I did with black and white in the same symbol. This isn't the best picture of it because it was taken with my phone camera. But you get the idea. I have also worked with all different textures of feathers without a problem.
