I love creating all types of arts and crafts and finally decided to see if others would enjoy my creations.

(all earrings are cleaned with alcohol before shipping)

Jinx is an old high school nickname because I'm a klutz with cat like reflexes, lol - which I used for my online user name for years. When I opened my Etsy shop I didn't realize that the user name was the shop name, duh! and by then it was too late to change. Since I already had a long term presence under this username I just kept it as all my shop names but my DBA is Feathered Friends Mementos.

Are you a bird lover? Have a parrot companion? Or just love beautiful and fascinating feathers? This is the shop for you!
Any of my designs can be created in a custom order with your parrot companion's feathers!

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
I accept paypal (domestic and international), checks and money orders (domestic only). Once your check clears both banks I will mail your item. I also offer layway; put down 25% of the original cost and make payments of 15-25% each month until the item is paid in full. Contact me to make layaway arrangements.

Custom orders require 50% down upon ordering and the other 50% prior to shipping but after final approval photos have been accepted by customer.
Since my items are usually less than 2 oz, I offer free shipping cost to the entire world for artwork and jewelry.

I recycle packing paper and boxes whenever possible for the benefit of the environment, but I always wrap the item in pretty tissue paper inside!

However, some countries import regulations are very strict and may not allow the import of feathers. Please check your county's custom regulations for import. I will fill out the appropriate customs forms but can not be held responsible for replacement or refund if the item is held at customs.

Also, if you ship feathers to me for a custom order the return shipping is FREE!

International buyers please contact me before buying any of my feather items so that we may discuss the details and hopefully come to an agreement. I may not be able to help but I would most certainly love to try!
Refunds and Exchanges
I offer a refund for 7 days after item is delivered (I use delivery confirmation on all domestic shipments). Item must be damaged from shipment or faulty manufacture for refund. I also offer 30 days free repair if an item breaks due to faults. After 30 days I will repair any item for the cost of parts and labor, which is quoted on an individual basis. If you have any problems contact me and I will be willing to work with you to solve the problem.

If delivery confirmation shows that package was delivered than no refund for missing item is available.
Additional policies and FAQs
All my feathers are naturally molted and treated with borax for 3 weeks prior to usage to kill any possible parasites and to freshen them.

***How to care for your handmade feather product:***
Your feathered piece of art was made with care; the feathers personally selected and/or matched by Heather Mewis of Feathered Friends Mementos. With care your feathered piece should remain in good condition for years. Feathers are made of keratin which is similar to human hair and fingernails. In nature birds routinely take water only baths to help care for their feathers. If any of the feathers become bent but not broken then place the feather flat inside a book for a few hours. This should straighten the shaft. After it has straighten then gently but firmly comb and smooth the feather between your thumb and first finger until the smaller filaments and bards reconnect. If your feather becomes soiled it may be lightly washed with water, reshaped by hand and allowed to air dry. If the stain is more extensive a very small amount of mild soap may be used, the feather rinsed thoroughly, reshaped and allowed to air dry. When not in use the feathers should be stored in a cool, dark place. Occasional exposure to mild humidity or water will help extend the life of your feathers since sun and time will eventually dry out the keratin and cause splitting. If at any time you have any questions or concerns regarding the care or replacement of feathers, please email me at ffmementos [!at] yahoo.com .

*I offer free gift wrapping if requested and I am willing to ship to third party addresses for no additional cost. if you would like to have a gift shipped directly to a particular person. Just email the details and I will take care of the rest.
