I started making jewelry when I was 10. As I got older, I realized how expensive charms and other findings were, so I started to use whatever materials I had and objects that I found around the house. I turned miscellaneous buttons into rings and used my birds' feathers to make necklaces and earrings. I realized that limiting myself to using what I already owned actually allowed me to expand my creativity.

I don't have a job right now, so this is how I make a little money. I work on my craft in my spare time because I am trying to finish up my last year of high school. I am currently trying to sell locally. Next year, when I start college, I hope to open a shop on Etsy to start my own business.

#1 Light Blue Bottled Feather Necklace

Light Blue Bottled Feather Necklace

I love the idea of little bottles so I used one of my bird's feathers that was small enough to fit inside so make this simple, but cute, pendant. I also have earrings that I made from bigger feathers that you can see on my Instagram.
