This fiery phoenix feather was entirely hand crafted from premium tooling leather. The leather was cut, sculpted, carved, dyed and painted before being sealed with a protective top coat. This one is painted in deep shades of burgundy and crimson, with bands scarlet, copper and gold.
It clasps with an artisan crafted wooden stick, made of dyed and laminated birch. The layers of colored wood create a gorgeous striped effect – in this case, in shades of burgundy, cinnamon and amber. The wooden stick measures about 6.75″ long, and the colors compliment the leather feather beautifully.
As you can see from the last photo, this is one of a small batch of 3 phoenix feathers that I recently created. Each one is different, and I don’t make many at all (the last time I made phoenix feathers was about 2 years ago). Thus this is one of my more unique designs that is not restocked very often.
Phoenix, gryphons and firebirds are mythic creatures found in folklore and fairytales from around the world. They symbolize the fire element, as well as rebirth and transformation.
