Making jewellery started as a hobby which progressed into a fully fledged feather obsession.
I began exploring materials and started to use feathers as they have a natural beauty in the vividness of their colour. I hand craft each piece myself with a lot of care and because of the nature of feathers, everything is unique.
I only use ethically sourced feathers that are naturally molted. I buy these from the UK and USA.

The feathers I use are from a variety of birds including; Peacock, Guinea Fowl, Magpie, Jay, Mallard, Golden Pheasant, Lady Amherst's Pheasant, Common Pheasant, Silver Pheasant, Flamingo, African Grey Parrot, Blue-and-yellow Macaw,Falcon, Eagle Owl, Scarlet Macaw, Amazon Parrot, Moluccan Cockatoo, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo and Parakeet. All of the feathers I use have been sanitized.
If you would like something of a particular colour/feather/size send me an email and I will see what I can do. I can use gold or sterling silver fastenings for earrings and necklaces. I love working on custom orders.
