I have made these delicate earrings by rolling the silver into a walz to the thinnest extent. This procedure creates a very strong yet very light material. Just like the feather, these light earrings make a strong impression. Symbol meaning of feathers deal with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Feathers were worn by Native American Chiefs to symbolize their communication with Spirit, and to express their celestial wisdom. Also in the Native American Indian culture, feathers represented the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind.
