Feather and Bead Earrings

Homemade earring designs have never been so trendy! Use feathers, beads and chains to create a cool and hop accessory. Feather and Bead Earrings by Linda Peterson can go with any outfit and take just a short time to make.

Feather and Bead Earrings


  • Guinea feathers – any color (I purchased a hair clip with lots of feathers)
  • Chain in length of choice
  • Earring wire
  • Jump rings
  • Black tear drop beads in size of choice
  • 24 gauge Artistic Wire in non-tarnish silver
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Round nose pliers
  • Jewelry wire cutters


  1. Remove feather(s) from chain. If using purchased feathers, attach a fold-over crimp bead to the feather.

  2. Cut piece of wire approximately 2-1/2″ – 3″ in length. Slide wire through the hole on the teardrop bead.

  3. Move bead to about 1/2″ from one end and bend ends of wires upwards. Hold the jewelry pliers where the bead and wires meet. Twist bead several times.

  4. Snip off shorter wire right above the wire twist.

  5. Place the concave round nose pliers right above the twist to create a wire loop right above the bead. Wrap the excess wire several times around the twist right above the bead.
