These earrings are one of my latest and greatest...and seems to be very popular, too!
My interpretation of feathers in metal =) All pieces are separate and swing when you move your head and looks great with long hair =)
They are made by hand hammering the metal, and yes, I've hit my fingers a few times! It's very difficult (for me) to make sure the metal keeps it's shape and doesn't get flat in all the wrong places.
The above is the large version, and per request, I have made a smaller version below =)
