These pretty earrings are shaped like hearts, with quillwork in red, yellow, white and other colors.

Porcupine quillwork is an ancient art form completely unique to North America.  The use of quills in designs is characteristic particularly among East Coast and Plains tribes.  Quills need to be softened and may be dyed before use.  Some of the most stunning examples of porcupine quill artistry are the Plains Indian war shirts, each of which would take a skilled quillworker more than a year to embroider.  Porcupine quills are difficult to work with, and quilling is a very labor intensive process.
