Bright as a Feather
Kauai Feather Creations' colorful accessories
We hate to break it to you, but Coachella's been over for more than a week. So why are you still clicking through photo after stylish photo of Almost Famous celebs sporting maxis, oversized sunnies, sweet flower garlands, and more feathers than a bird sanctuary?
Clearly, you're still totally obsessed with that '70s style, but let's face it: those Coachella outfits won't fly in the office. Lucky for you, Kauai Feather Creations' colorful feather accessories will.
This ultra-boho chic line of earrings, hair combs, and hat and lapel pins is handmade on Kauai by artist Natasha Young. The University of Hawaii at Manoa graduate assembles a vibrant mix of feathers, sourced as much as possible from local pet owners, and carefully layers them so each piece resembles a real bird's wing. The result: stunningly rich rainbow-colored combos of regal peacock greens, earthy reds and desert golds that, believe it or not, are all totally natural.
Young has a small Etsy shop, but does most of her business on Facebook through custom orders. So feel free to spread your creative wings and request a set of bridal party headbands, or dramatic, multi-feathered dangling earrings that practically scream "best paired with rock and roll." Really, the sky's the limit here.
