Small Teardrop Quillwork Earring

These earrings have been hand-crafted with porcupine quills and rawhide. The quills are wrapped around the rawhide. They measure .75 W x 1.25 H inches on silver french 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.
