Over the past few months, I have noticed the growing trend of feathers adorning everything from fascinators and jewelry to handbags and everything in between. Being an animal lover, I started to worry about all of the naked birds that must be running around. But with a little investigation and the help of a rabbi, I have discovered the world of cruelty free feathers. I won’t bore you with the details of the molting process, but let’s just say that if you know where your feathers are coming from, it is possible to enjoy their beauty and feel completely free of guilt. You will actually be a part of a natural recycling process!
The Peacock Spirit Earrings above are from member TwilightVisions, who has a shop full of natural creations with descriptions of the healing powers of feathers (who knew?)
