(TRIN-KET: noun - a small ornament, piece of jewelry, etc., usually of little value.)
Inspired by the "365: Make Something Every Day" Creativity Challenge, I will make and post a trinket every day for one year beginning January 1, 2011.

Trinket #252 - Feather Earrings
Apparently I am old or something, because it took my eleven year-old daughter to inform me that feather earrings are a current trend. In fact, she's been begging for some for the past three months. I decided I'd attempt to fill her request today by using what I had on-hand and seeing what I could do with it. In this case, I used two naturally shed chicken feathers, some silver wire, and a pair of silver ear hooks. Not bad for a first attempt, but those feathers are certainly difficult to secure. I'm sure I will be trying a few different ways of wrapping feathers in the near future - my little flock has let go of dozens of lovely supplies over the past week or two.
