I love attending a good powwow and listening to the sound of the large powwow drum. Actually I love listening to any drum. The drumbeat is our heartbeat! There are some great powwows here in the southwest, including the annual Gathering of Nations.
Here I have beaded two “drums” (actually wooden cylinders) in a colorful feather design. I added two sets of sterling feathers dangling below. The large feathers are vintage recycled artisan pieces from an old earring set, marked HH. The smaller feathers are current, non-artisan pieces.
These fun and colorful earrings have an approximate 3 1/4 inch drop, with the large vintage feathers measuring 2 1/2 inches and the smaller feathers approximately one inch. The beaded drums are approximately 3/4 inch high.
