How To Make Feather Earrings
For my friend birthday, I made her nice feather earrings. I was surprise to see how easy it was to make them and how cool the final result looked. Furthermore, once you have all the supply you need to do them, they take 15 minutes to make! So this is my “How to” for this project.

Nikki P. - I think that those foldable connectors are also called cord tips. Just look for the ones that are squared,not round. I found some on eBay, i must buy some too. Happy
