Today, since it’s a lovely shiny Saturday, I’d like to present to you a collection of feather earrings that I made a while ago and which are very dear to me. American Indian culture is very inspiring to me for its symbols and their aproach to everyday life.
“Feathers mean a lot to Native American Tribes. A feather isn’t just something that falls out of a bird, it means much more. The feather symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power, freedom and many more things. To be given one of these is to be hand picked out of the rest of the men in the tribe – it’s like getting a gift from a high official.
If any Indian is given Golden or Bald Eagle feathers it is one of the most rewarding items they can ever be handed. The Indians believe that eagles have a special connection with the heavens since they fly so close. Many Indians believe that if they are given this feather, it is a symbol from above. They believe that the eagle is the leader of all birds, because it flies as high as it does and sees better than all the birds.” (read more here)
May these earrings lift your spirit and bring you the soft breeze of freedom and communion with nature.
