Etsy and Kelseysfeathers
Well if you have read my previous reviews on this site, you know I am a fan of Etsy. I mean what’s not to love? A ton of artists with unique products. Encouraging local and international artists. Including Native American artists or those who reproduce the art. In this case, I do not believe that the shop owner is Native but she sure does love making pretty things with feathers! Her shop is full of all things feather in different colors and styles. I mean if you want earrings, headbands, hair clips (which I also bought) and necklaces made with beautiful feathers, this is the place to go. Different lengths of everything are available, very practical in the case of hair clips, as people have different hair length. Below you can see the one I bought. However, even though my hair is growing, it is still a bit too short for it. But the clip is pretty. It does not, nonetheless, lay as flat as I would like it to. But it is pretty.
Native American feather earrings
Ok on to the core of the review now! Those earrings, I absolutely love! They are gorgeous! I do not usually buy long earrings like those but those ones just fit so well. The feathers are somewhat bendable so you can adjust them if they tend to go in your face or your mouth (maybe it’s just me but things like that tend to stick to my lipgloss…). The colors, mostly muted, are just stunning. The emerald green really stands out against the brown background. As feathers can slightly vary, each piece is truly unique. You can tell that the feathers are of good quality and the earrings just complement every outfit. I mean I can wear them to Pow wows (obviously!) but also to work and it’s totally appropriate. I get so many compliments on those earrings! I am not sure I would say that the earrings are entirely Native American authentic but they do have the look. As we know, feathers were used in a lot of regalia and accessories by our ancestors. As an aside, here is an explanation of the feather.
As for service and shipping, well Kelseysfeathers is based in the USA and I live in Canada. Therefore, it took about 3 weeks for me to receive my shipment but it was sent to me fairly quickly once I had placed my order. Shipping was also somewhat affordable (7$ for both the clip and the earrings).
There you go everyone! I would say: go check out the shop, it is worth it, even if it’s just to browse. But I am pretty sure you will end up buying something feathery….
