Adorn Yourself With Jewels Of Feathers.

Feathers as Inspiration in Jewellery Making

Feathers have been used in jewellery and body adornment for a long time.

As the history of jewellery has evolved from man crafting items from animals, birds, fish, seeds and precious stones, so feathers have played a large part in body adornment. 

Whilst feathers have, over centuries, been popular in  jewellery and hair accessories, they are still thought of as a young and modern symbol to wear.

Feathers as Spiritual Symbols

Native Americans used them to show their connection to spirit and, more recently, many believe that when you see a feather, it marks a sign from an angel or a loved one who has passed.

Feathers symbolically represented the connection between the spiritual realm and ascension to the higher plane.

With the connection to birds, they also represent flight, freedom and travel.

The Beautiful Shape of a Feather 

The beautiful shape and delicate lines of feathers mean that craftsmen have created some stunning pieces through the history of jewellery making.

Jewellery craftsmen and women could show off their jewellery making skills so well in moulding such intricate shapes such as a feather and display their stone-setting skills so perfectly in their adornment.

The shape and the detailing in the delicate vanes of a feather make it a perfect shape in which to craft jewellery.

A simple feather pendant such as these are always popular and make a most delightful gift.

Feminine and Delicate Lines

A simple feather pendant such as these are always popular and make a most delightful gift. They look beautiful on, delicate and very feminine looking. 

Feather earrings are also a big hit, particularly drop earrings – the movement of the earring is very alluring. They have a certain bohemian look about them, a little like hoops, particularly if worn by someone with long hair.  In fact a very popular earring is a mixture of the two – a hoop and a feather – with the feather dangling from the hoop.
