HorseFeathers Gifts began during the height of the recession, when Chelsea Farmer quit her job and set out on a journey of inspiration, purpose and creativity.
It was time to take life by the reins and pave her own path. As a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America, Chelsea harnessed her education and love for beautiful jewelry, designing uniquely handmade pieces, that endured like heirlooms, yet held up to everyday wear.
From the beginning, HorseFeathers Gifts employed women in Chelsea’s immediate circle. Women who needed an income, but longed for inspiration. These were the original HFG gals and most are still working here, making HorseFeathers what it is today.
We’re self-proclaimed, crazy animal people! Among us all, we have dozens of rescued furry family members – and many of them come to work with us in the studio or shop. Our heart is with them and those who haven’t found homes yet. We partner with and donate every month to organizations that rescue and re-home animals – giving them the new life they deserve.
As the cold months approached in 2016, we discovered that our Burmese refugee neighbors would have to put their work on hold for the season. As local farmers, they have no steady source of income when the earth is too cold to produce a harvest. We immediately set out to employ the women of these families. They now work as artisans, creating inspiring pieces and bringing home a more predictable income.
From the beginning, HorseFeathers Gifts has been about Positivity and Purpose. We believe in Good Vibes Only and Working our Tails off. HorseFeathers Gifts is here to provide colorful, happy jewelry to women around the world … and to provide meaningful work to wives, moms, women. Work Hard, Do Good, Be Great!
