Leather Oak Leaf and Owl Feather by windfalcon Leather Oak Leaf and Owl Feather by windfalcon
I had another idea, aside from just making feathers, I could make leaves, too. :) Obviously my focus will still be on leather feathers, but if anyone wants a special leaf, I can make those too!

On the left, an oak leaf (about 4.25 inches) made from 4-oz leather, and on the right, a 7-inch great horned owl feather, made from 7-oz leather.

Both of these are available in my Etsy shop:

My goodness, these leather feathers of yours look so real! Beautiful work and a wonderful way to "own" a raptor feather!

The question is not WILL I buy one or more of these, at the moment, but WHAT do I most want? :) (I am searching deep within my soul to decide whether I can pull off wearing the 7" GHO feather... and man, I wear a LOT of quite large pendants/necklaces, so it's not outside the realm of possibility. I also love the idea of getting a leather feather for a hat...)

Love these. Love this idea. Love the execution.

The cool thing about these is you can use them for whatever you want :3 You can wear it as a pendant one day, and then hang it from a hat the next.

When I saw the thumbnail I thought the feather was a cocoon for a caterpillar, and I was excited to look. It's not what I was expecting, but it definitely didn't disappoint me! These are beautiful!

The idea to have a necklace with an oak-leaf might be lovely to most, especially cause of the Ranger's apprentice books. the Ranger have necklaces bearing a brass or silver Oak-leaf.

Lovely ideas and pieces :3

Hmm, that's an idea. I have metallic pigments, too :3 It would be quite easy to make a brass-tone or silver-tone leaf.

The leaf is a good idea; real leaves would just rot and crumble or break!

Exactly! I'd love to have a leaf necklace, but it would only last a day.
