I can’t explain how excited I get whenever I find something that feeds the minimalist in me. When it comes to jewelry, please give me barely-there pieces. While I may occasionally fancy the over-the-top, in your face designs (on other people, at least), I don’t want to be burdened by the weight of my accessories. I mean, we already have to deal with wearing clothes (I’m looking at you, Adam and Eve).
“Another Feather makes jewelry for the non-jewelry wearer”. i.e., Me!
Portland-based designer, Hannah Ferrara began making minimalistic jewelry after searching long and hard for the kind of jewelry she herself wanted to wear. Inspired by her travels, simplistic designs, ancient relics and an appreciation for well made objects and heirlooms, her line, Another Feather, includes hand crafted metal made jewelry and simple everyday adornments paired down to their minimal forms.
Hannah’s pieces are delicately designed with comfort in mind for everyday wear, weather day or night. So chic! And I think that’s what I love most about them; that they’d go with almost everything in my closet, if not all. The simple life, sign me up please!
Each piece of jewelry is made with care and given special attention, embracing natural imperfections of the hand at work.
All of that care and attention is definitely worth the final result. The simplicity of these designs are just as swoon-worthy as the photos that capture them. Hey guys, I’m in love!!!
By the way, am I the only one who’s noticed that there seems to be a rise in Portland-based creatives? Must be something in the water. I’m sure not complaining.
And if you were wondering about the story behind the brand name:
Since I was a girl I have picked up any lost feather I see. While spending time on the coast, I’d gather the feathers of seagulls and herons, in the flatlands and farmlands I’d stuff bluebird & pheasant feathers in my pockets, and now in the mountains, I find plenty of grouse & wild turkey feathers. Needless to say the name Another Feather made sense, embodying my love for collecting and the natural world.
I would totally wear Another Feather, wouldn’t you?
