Announcement   At Avian Designs, we sell handmade bohemian, upcycled jewelry! Our leather earrings double as diffuser jewelry. Simply add a drop of your favorite essential oil to the back of your upcycled leather earrings and enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy all day long!

So what does upcycled mean anyway? It means taking something old and repurposing it to make something new! All of the leather/suede I use comes from old jackets, pants, etc., mostly found at thrift stores. And all of the feathers come from either my beloved backyard chickens or from friends' birds (chickens, ducks, and a blue and gold macaw) and are collected after they naturally fall off the birds on their own (a process known as molting) -- hence being cruelty free.

Avian Designs earrings are also sold at:
Simply Bulk Market ~ 418 Main St. Longmont, CO

Wholesale opportunities available. Please contact us for details.

About

My name is Amy and I live with my family in beautiful Colorado. My store name -- Avian Designs -- comes from a combination of my children's names and, of course, the word avian also means "relating to birds."

We have several backyard chickens that I affectionately refer to as "my girls" from whom I gather most of the feathers for my jewelry. We have an Ameraucana named Candy Corn that I think of as the smartest one of the flock. We also have a couple gold-laced Cochins named Ramona and Beezus (who are super cute with their feathered feet, but aren't very bright), as well as several other sweeties. I enjoy dyeing the black and white feathers I collect from Pinky (an Ancona) and our light Brahma.

In addition to working with feathers, I also enjoy creating up-cycled jewelry from leather and suede clothing that I find in thrift shops.

I love art and creating and enjoy putting together unique earrings.

If you have an idea for some earrings, but don't see them listed, please contact me. I'd be happy to talk with you about creating custom earrings just for you!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

FEATHERS: The feathers are natural and somewhat fragile, so please use care when handling them to keep them looking their best. Treat them gently and please do NOT wear them in the shower or while swimming.
If they become ruffled, simply smooth them out between your fingers.

LEATHER: To keep your leather earrings looking their best, please do not wear them in the shower or while swimming.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All earrings are carefully wrapped in brown kraft paper, tied with a twine bow and sent either in a padded envelope or small cardboard box using biodegradable packing "peanuts." Please consider reusing or recycling your box and packing materials. Thank you!

Wholesale availability

Many of my earrings are available for wholesale orders. Please contact me for details.

Custom and personalized orders

I accept custom orders. If you have an idea in mind, please contact me and we can see if it is a possibility. Also, if you see a pair of leather earrings that you like, but would prefer them in a different color, let me know. Chances are that I can do that. I look forward to working with you to create something amazing! Thank you.
