Feather Holders

I love finding feathers, and have been enjoying making antler feather holders for them. The feather holders have copper tubes embedded in them which hold various diameter of feather.  Smaller feather holders (photos coming soon) are made from the beams of antler, and these larger ones are made either from the end pedicle of the antler, or the flat sides of a section of antler where branching happens. The larger ones are gilded with gold leaf and are made of antler, bark-tanned leather and English hardwoods.

All feather holders come with feathers to fit the holes (e.g. goose, pheasant, partridge). The owl feathers are for display only.
