Quill Earrings

These earrings have been hand-crafted with porcupine quills. They measure .75 W x 1.5 H inches on silver wires.

Pieces of quillwork dated over 200 years old have been found in the Plains area. The introduction of beads in the early 1800s supplemented and tended to replace quills. The quill of a porcupine is a round, hollow tube that has a barbed point at one end. Quills were used both for trade and for decorative purposes.
