Light As a Feather on Etsy

My Apricot Peacock Feather earrings were just featured in another Etsy Treasury. Gotta love the free publicity!

Peachy Keen

My work was featured in two different Etsy treasuries last week. I’ve been rather lackadaisical about posting them though. The Etsy Treasury is an ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery of handpicked items. The members use a certain subject to create their treasuries. In this particular one, the color peach seems to be the main theme. My Apricot Peacock Feather earrings were featured below, third row and center. Pretty peachy!

My Cherry Blossom Bird hair stick was used in this treasury, second row and center. I love that it’s titled “Spring in SF,” being that I’m located in SF. Cherry blossoms are in full bloom right now too. Nice timing.

Pink Polka Dot Plumage

I had a nice burst of inspiration this month. It looks like I’m off to a good start for 2010.

Flamingo pink is the color scheme for these earrings. Cotton candy also comes into the mix by the use of the fluffy feathers. I added the dotted feathers for a playful, yet chic element. Uh- huh!

I was also curious about what type of bird has this unique polka dotted plumage. I did a little research and I came across this beautiful image on Brittanica.com:

The bird is a Helmeted Guinea Fowl, a native to Africa. They feed on insects and seeds, can be domesticated or feral, and apparently tastes like chicken!
