Beaded Feather Bundles
$165.00 – $185.00
Custom made by Dawn with your medicine and hand beaded with glass seedbeads.
Beautiful and powerful Feather Bundles can be used in talking/sharing circles for healing and restorative justice as well as for burning medicines (gratitude/smudge/prayer).
A simple bundle is all you need to move the smoke of your medicines around yourself or your environment. Be careful to understand the medicines of the bird before ordering. Some medicines cannot be combined.
Feathers are not owned but retain the spirit of the bird – therefore, they are not ours to sell but only to give. The cost is for the labour and materials (quality hide, beads, etc.). Hide colours will vary depending on availability and your Feather Keeper will custom make your bundle for you. No bundle is ever identical – images are samples and variations. Detailed information can be found at the bottom of this page. *Feathers cannot be shipped outside of Canada.
Beaded Feather bundles take a lot longer to make and are special orders. You’re welcome to put notes as to specific patterns/colours and I can try to help. Handle size: Large (Tobacco) is 1.25″ in diameter and 3″ long. Small (Cedar) is 0.75″ x 3″ long.
Your Feather Keeper is Dawn Setford (Mary Francis) Iehstoseranón:nha (She keeps the feathers). She is Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk), Wakhskare:wake (Bear Clan) whose familial territory is St.Regis/Akwesasne.
The feathers come to Dawn through her ancestors, conscientious hunters, donors and wildlife rehabs.
Feathers are not owned but retain the spirit of the bird – therefore, they are not ours to sell but only to give. The bird will determine where their feathers will reside. Dawn’s only job is to ‘dress’ the feathers – that is, to wrap them, bead them, bundle them so that your medicines can be carried by you and admired by you. Dawn does not sell feathers – she is only the keeper of feathers. You cannot order Eagle feathers as they are only to be gifted to those that are ready for the knowledge and those that carry the knowledge. When you are ready for an Eagle feather, one will come to you naturally.
