It wouldn’t be hard to do, the trouble is getting the colors you want. You can get these, although I’m not sure that I would call that “dusty rose.”

Sorry about the picture on the “dusty rose” bleached and dyed peacock.  I don’t think they are actually quite that “orangey” in real life.  Subtle color tones can be hard for us to photograph exactly sometimes.

We do have the ivory bleached peacock feather as well and would be glad to work with you on constructing this type of item. The problem I see with DIY on this project is matching the feathers. Peacock eyed feathers vary quite a bit in the size and shape of the “eye” so one would have to work from a larger quantity to find matching feathers.  It’s what peacock feather earring makers do, matching only maybe 6-8 pair per one hundred feathers sorted through.

Thanks for your interest.
