Indian Head Cent & Feather Earrings
These Southwestern-inspired earrings combine soft coque feathers with authentic Indian Head Pennies. Antique-brass chains peak out between the feathers to add texture.
The Indian Head Cent, also known as the Indian Head Penny, was minted in the United States from 1859 to 1909. The depiction on the Indian Head Penny was intended to be the goddess Liberty, not a portrait of a Native American chief or even a man at all. But because Liberty is wearing a feathered headdress, the coin was incongruently named the Indian Head Cent.
Exact dates on coins will vary.
Coque de Leon feathers are from distinct roosters that grow these beautiful feathers and shed them once a year. These birds have been bred for over 100 years by fly fishermen, who use the feathers as fishing lures. Sustainably sourced in the USA.
Earwires are brass. Goldfill earwires are available by request.
Length ranges from 7" to 7.5" total.
