In 2015 my family and I went hunting in Northern Russia and were able to harvest some gorgeous ducks, grouse, and pheasants. Up there, hunting is a way of life and the source of food for locals, so to prevent wastefulness I saved the feathers for jewelry making.

That summer I traveled to the Grateful Dead reunion shows in Chicago and debuted my first feather earring collection on lot. That’s where AnastasiyasEmporium was born.

These female grouse feathers are paired with a green jade and silver crystal bead. The hooks are hypoallergenic surgical steel and all materials are fair trade and cruelty free.

  • Beautiful feathers, Anastasiya – and perfect for lightweight earrings. I also like the jade and crystal to add just a touch of bling to them. I imagine your feather jewelry did quite well at the Grateful Dead reunion shows! 🙂

    I love the fact that you used feathers that you obtained yourself! Just favorited your Etsy shop:)

  • Joanne says:

    Gorgeous… the jade and crystal beads add just the right touch!

  • Marlies says:

    Just make sure that the bird is NOT on the Migratory Bird Species Act or there could be a huge fine and/or imprisonment if you sell these items made with certain feathers. I had to re-make a few dreamcatchers because of the feathers used. Be careful.
