the brains and heart behind HorseFeathers – where handmade jewelry meets a life less ordinary!
Back in 2009, I was done with the whole windowless office gig, spending eight hours a day writing inspection reports. So, in the midst of a classic early 20s crisis, I chucked the two weeks' notice, said goodbye to the corporate world, and dived headfirst into the magical land of handmade jewelry.
Starting off in a tiny bedroom of a single-wide trailer on my family farm, reality hit when that steady income disappeared. But armed with determination and fueled by Dr. Pepper, I took it all in stride. I hit up every craft show in sight and got my Etsy shop up and running like my grocery budget depended on it.
What was once just a small Etsy shop quickly blew up into a nationally recognized online brand – thanks to my grit and grind.
In just a few years, that little bedroom studio grew into a dedicated workspace, and the crowning glory came when I found myself not only opening my first studio but also jet-setting across the states for a live interview with FOX News. HorseFeathers was officially on the map, known for our meaningful gemstone jewelry and handcrafted charms.
Now, fourteen years later, HorseFeathers is a living testament to my never-give-up attitude. From flying solo, I'm now leading a team of fab folks, all adding their touch to the brand's awesome vibe. We've even sent our unique creations to over 50 countries – talk about taking the world by storm!
It's been a wild, crazy ride for me and the HorseFeathers crew – a journey marked by passion, persistence, and the belief that crafting isn't just about jewelry; it's a lifestyle celebrating you and the pursuit of your dreams. Cheers to bling, dreams, and living life HorseFeathers style! 🌟✨

I love shopping with horse feathers gifts. Not only because the Jewelry is beautiful, well made, and unique but because of the phenomenal community of women who come with it. When you buy from Chelsea and her team you’re not only getting beautiful, meaningful pieces that you can wear everyday you are getting access to a group of women who support and inspire one another. Could not recommend Horsefeathers Gifts enough!
