Dyed and Natural Porcupine Quill Bracelets

It's been a while since I've made one of these bracelets. However I can't seem to keep enough of them in stock anymore to give away to friends and family. I think I may have to start raising my prices on these ones just a little. Even though it takes about 2 days to make one, I still feel really exhilarated once I finish the last stitch! Just the mere sorting of quills takes hours (Special thanks to Dylan for helping!), and the dyeing of the quills can be tricky as they don't always survive the boiling process, which is the only way they'll absorb the dye unfortunately.~ Anyhow, I hope you all love the new colorful bracelets. Next in line for a bracelet, my mother.
