We love checking out Refinery29.com to keep up with local trends, street styles, and fun DIY ideas! While we were perusing this great site we came across a super simple and easy to follow do-it-yourself video to create a stunning feather necklace. The supplies are minimal but the reward is dramatic- all you need is a metal chain, strip of leather, feathers of your choice, wire cutters, scissors and a glue gun!

The gals at Refinery 29 used black rooster coque tails and ringneck pheasant almond plumage but feel free to get creative! We recommend our packaged pheasant feathers, goose satinettes, and goose biots. You can also use our items by the yard like rooster schlappens, rooster coque tails, or even our bright dyed grey chinchilla schlappens for a pop of color! Check out the video above for detailed DIY directions!
