I haven't made one quite like this, but I do use a lot of feathers in my creations, and I'm guessing she used wire on this one. Not jewelry wire--floral wire. You can find it in the floral design section of Michael's and Joanne's. It also looks like she individually curled feathers to create the different directions and dimensions. Curling can be a pain in the but, but once you get the hang of it, it really adds some lovely dimension to your creations!
