These dangly raven feather earrings were handcrafted using tooling leather and semiprecious gems. The feathers were cut, carved and painted in black with washes of iridescent green and blue. The shimmering highlights can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the lighting. The color has been sealed with a protective top coat.
The feathers are accented with pewter cones with a spiral motif, as well as rainbow obsidian and faceted blue goldstone beads. My photos do not capture the stones’ play of light effects, but the obsidian has gorgeous flashes of iridescent green, and the blue goldstone sparkles in the light.
The earring hooks are oxidized sterling silver.
While the length is dramatic, at almost 4.5″ (or just over 3.75″ from the earlobe), the earrings are surprisingly light weight.
