These bright and beautiful earrings were created with Peacock tail feathers that were naturally molted and gathered with no harm to the bird. Enjoy the weightless feeling and the brilliant iridescent colors that change dramatically in different lighting. This set is very cute. Look at the third picture to get an idea of how much smaller these feathers are compared to the larger sets I have available.

MEASUREMENTS:
About 3" long & 1 1/2" at their widest point.
*Also available in Petite, Medium, Large and Extra-Large

Earwires are hypoallergenic surgical steel.
You can upgrade them to Sterling Silver in my shop at... http://www.etsy.com/shop/intrinsicimagination?section_id=6591333

*ABOUT PEACOCKS AND THEIR FEATHERS*
Indian Peacocks or peafowl (pavo cristatus) have been domesticated for about 3000 years. Their native range is through India, Pakistan, western China, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

The male peacock sports about 150 of the long "eyed" peacock tail feathers with which most of us are so familiar. These feathers are shed annually during the molt and gathered as a valuable "crop" in many countries through its range.These feathers are actually long extensions of the upper tail covers. They are supported from underneath by the much shorter tail feathers. These feathers grow to be several feet long, but are shed each year just after the breeding season. Each of these long feathers also has a design near its tip which resembles an eye.

The shimmering color of the peacock feather is due to a phenomena known as interference. Each feather consists of tiny flat branches. When light shines on the feather, we see thousands of glimmering colored spots, each caused by minuscule bowl-shaped indentations. This same principle is also responsible for vibrant shimmering colors of butterflies, pheasants, birds of paradise and humming birds. Recreating the unique color of the peacock feather has posed a challenge to artists and ceramists for centuries.

Thanks for viewing!

Notes: I try my best to match feathers as close as possible, but no two feathers are exactly alike. This means that the feathers on each earring will be a little different. I think this just makes every pair more special & unique, and ensures that each set of earrings is OOAK.
I also work with each picture to make sure colors are a true representation of what your product will look like. Colors may still vary slightly from picture due to different computer monitor projections.
