  • Wing spikes

    I have a set of wing spikes that I want to do something with. Any ideas what they can be used for? They are somewhat odd shaped naturally so i'm drawing a blank. Suggestions?

      I have one right and one left, about 13" more-or-less from tip to tip.

      I know they can be used for a bustle but are there any other craft uses considering that I don't have the whole wing set?

        Sorry to take so long in returning a message. I would agree they would look nice from bustle uprights and I would probably do that if I were building a bustle. If you could locate a nice center tail feather you may consider a small fan as another option. I once saw a dancer that had two spikes as a simple fan with some gourd stitch and hawk bells but I cannot recall any other information on the 2 feather fan. It is also not necessary to do something immediately I would think, possibly hold on to them for a while until something comes to mind.

          Thanks [MENTION=57090]Ravenhunter[/MENTION]

          Yea I was also thinking of a small fan. I've had these for a bit and every once in a while I get an idea and take a look to see if it would work. We'll see what happens.

          to be continued...

            Making feather fans?
            by WillowRhiamon
            My best friend and I just bought feathers at Pow Wow for our first feather fans. I am Iroquois and she is Cherokee (not raised traditionally though) and we want to stay within our tradition when making our fans. We have straight feathers to use for this. Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions or websites...
