$ 60.00

This product is unavailable

These pretty dark red quilled earrings move as you wear them.  Each earring features a quilled circle inside a larger quilled circle.

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.
