I remember visiting the eagles exhibit at the Frankfort, KY Game park. They are so much bigger in real life! I couldn't help but try to grab an Eagle feather. I know bad of me. But hey I wasn't hurting them! They naturally fall out. *Wink* I wasn't able to unfortunately.
When doing my craft with air I always include a feather on my alter. Jewelry is also a wonderful way to incorporate feathers for personal wear.
When my husband and I first began dating he gave me a Native American name. It is White Feathers. For years I used that name online until I retired it after taking SalemWitchChild as my online persona. But in the beginning of our relationship I'd often wear 3 white feathers in my hair. I simply loved them. I had long hair going all the way down to my hips. I arranged them so the feathers would fall almost to the end of my hair and it was beautiful. We visited a lot of Pow Wow's back then, and that's when I'd often wear them.
