|Genuine Peacock Feather.
|The exact dimensions of these earrings are highly variable, due to the fact that they're made from natural feathers, and no two peacock feathers are exactly the same. I've got pairs that run the gauntlet from like 5cm long by 3cm wide all the way up to 12cm long by 6cm wide. If you have a preference which size you receive, please let me know, otherwise sizes will be sent at random - though I have made a point of making sure that both earrings are as close to the same size as physically possible!
|Standard 20g Hypoallergenic Steel French Hook.
|Not Included, due to the size of the earrings. Will be sent in nice store packaging instead.
Peacock feathers are naturally a bit of a mixed bag, so there's always going to be some variation.
If you want big feathers, you have to use the ones from the very end of the tail, which are the oldest feathers so they have a lot of natural wear and tear, plus they drag on the ground when the peacock isn't displaying them so they end up looking dirty, faded, and tatty.
If you want nice-looking feathers, you have to use the ones near the base of the tail, but the younger feathers are always smaller in size, so you've got the trade-off between nice, crisp, smaller feathers and huge, tatty faded feathers.
These earrings are made using a combination of both, which is why there is such a big variation in size. If you have a preference, please let me know.
EVEN MORE IMPORTANT NOTE:
ABSOLUTELY NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THESE EARRINGS!
I know a lot of people think you have to kill the peacock to get their feathers, but this is (thankfully) a myth. I am a strong believer in animal rights and kindness towards all creatures, so I would never, ever sell a product that requires harming a living creature to make. Peacocks naturally shed their tail feathers at the end of the mating season, so there's absolutely no need to harm the peacock to get their feathers. You just follow 'em around and pick up the feathers when they fall out, which is... frequently. We had a couple of peacocks on our farm when I was growing up, and I swear there were feathers everywhere in mating season. We had so many that we ended up throwing them out by the handful just to get them off the lawn!
