Fancy Feathers - are you tickilish ...?

As part of my Uni studies, I am working on a jewellery project using non-traditional materials (ie not silver or gold etc). I am planning a neckpiece using feathers. I want this piece to be a bit "out there" rather than a something you would wear alot. I will share a pic when it I have made it, but in the meantime here are some pics of the feathers I plan to use.

I am really happy with how they have turned out! Woo hoo - lacy feathers! There were a few tense moments when I printed these babies as my supply of white feathers is small and the printing doesn't work very well on the sort you get from the craft stores and I am keen to use as many printed feathers in the piece as possible. I am getting excited now!

My brain isn't able to comprehend how you have done this?
Printing on feathers?
Can't wait to see the end product.
