There are many legends associated with wearing this type of jewelry. According to 1200-year-old legend, wearing a bracelet made from this hair was believed to protect the wearer from any harm, misfortune, and even sickness. The four knots in the bracelet were supposed to be a symbol of the elements, water, fire, sun, and wind. The strands through the knots were symbolic of the different seasons. The movement of the knots with the wire that forms the basis of the bracelet was supposed to be a symbol of binding life's evolution with the different forces of nature. This bond is supposed to provide the wearer of the bracelet with strength. While traditionally these bracelets are made only of elephant hair, in modern times these bracelets are made by combining elephant hair with silver, gold, copper, and other precious metals.
Trim the feathers from the base so that the central spine of the feathers is visible. Assemble six feathers together so that you have at least two to three different feather patterns. Attach a headpin to the base of the feathers with the help of pliers. Thread a bead through the headpin as well as the spines of the feathers and then slide a crimping bead through it. Next, attach the earring wire to the end of the headpin and secure it with the pliers. Repeat the same steps to make the other earring. Your feather earrings is ready.
Apart from the above common uses, jewelry also had some uncommon and unconventional uses. Like, did you know that there existed such a thing as 'slave beads'?
