They range in length from 3.5 to 7 inches, and come with varying smoky black speckles and smudges, some with hints of a rich chestnut color.
Soft, lustrous and completely natural, these feathers would be especially nice for hair pieces, jewelry, headbands, cuffs and much more.
Your purchase will go towards the preservation of this beautiful heritage breed.
Silver Appleyard ducks are a large, dual-purpose breed that originated in England in the 1930's. Laid back and docile, they make a great flock for the family farm. They are active foragers and great layers of large, white eggs. Duck eggs are awesome for baking and homemade ice cream!
Our ducks spend their days happily foraging, basking, and swimming in the creek at the family farm.

Sculptures are shipped USPS First Class mail in a sturdy cardboard box surrounded by plenty of bubble wrap. I am especially attentive to making sure the sculptures are packed tightly enough to prevent them from moving.

Commissions are accepted, but please be patient - I work out of my home where I also take care of a family and a menagerie of critters. At this time we are also in the process of a house renovation and a move. Rest assured I will finish and ship your custom item as soon as possible.
I love to send project updates, so check your Etsy convos regularly.
If you see a sold item that you would like me to make, I would love to re-create it for you. While I cannot promise it will be an exact replica, I will make sure it is equally amazing! :)
I cannot sell wholesale at this time.
*CARE OF ITEMS*
Polymer clay is a very sturdy, durable and waterproof material.
All painted jewelry and sculptures are sealed with varnish, but it is advisable not to expose them to too much moisture or solvents. A damp rag is sufficient for cleaning pieces.
Clean delicate detail on sculptures very carefully, since they are the most prone to breakage.
