There is little in nature as intricate or as varied as the feathers of our winged friends. After a memorable pheasant or turkey harvest, I save a few – just as soon as I fry up the meat for dinner!
My friend Kristin Parma has found a way that these feathers can be saved and treasured, and not just on a shelf.
She makes hair clips, jewelry, and pins that feature the feathers and ammunition from a hunt.
“I have an innate need to respect the game I seek in the field. My love of birds and bird hunting inspired my passion to make feather jewelry. Every time I construct a piece I am reminded of the journey it took for me to get where I am today, living an outdoor life centered around hunting and conservation.”
How to Order
You can provide your own feathers from a memorable hunt for Kristin to make into custom earrings, hair barrettes, or other accessories. Visit her Cowgirls and Collies Facebook page to contact her or email kristinparma at yahoo dot com.
