MEET OUR CO-FOUNDER & DESIGNER
How did you come up with the name 'Feather and Chain'?
We were actually in a taxi on the way to dinner with friends and I think I said 'How about feather and stone' and my partner said 'or feather and chain'. We felt it encompassed both the earthy, nomadic boho feel along with the natural and bold.
Why did you decide to build a Jewellery brand ?
I've always been obsessed with jewellery & for me the more the better - hence our strong layering and stacking theme throughout the collection. When I struggled to find pieces I wanted to wear I started creating my own looks by customising my current pieces & buying from unique little boutiques in Australia and Bali to create the layered looks I loved. But I struggled to find unique boho style jewellery that was also luxurious and high quality - so i decided to create my own.
Who is your a co-founder?
Well... my partner actually. We love having the brand together. He brings his business experience and I'm more on the creative side which works great for us.
Happiest when.... ?
Barefoot in the sand listening to an inspiring podcast or travelling & exploring new places.
What are you passionate about?
We are both plant- based, environmentalists and animal lovers, and we're passionate about ensuring these values are reflected in the brand. We wanted our packaging and supply chain to be as ethical and sustainable as possible, to work with only fair trade manufactures to ensure fair wages for anyone working for us.
Through our beautiful jewellery we want to try to raise awareness and drive positive change for our planet.

It was during a trip to Bali that I truly became inspired and finally felt ready to design our first signature jewellery collection.
Hot humid days were spent exploring the splendour of the balinese temples, trekking through the breathtaking jungles and feasting on the local delights while evenings were spent excitedly sketching and designing beautiful jewellery pieces inspired by our days adventures and peaceful tranquil surroundings.
Feeling inspired by it's beauty, spirituality and the romantic idea of a nomadic lifestyle, I wanted to capture a little of the essence and magic in our jewellery. Today I still carry this inspiration through all aspects of the brand including our latest collection.
OUR BRAND VALUES
Unique, beautiful, boho and ethically conscious jewellery that is luxurious yet affordable.
We believe you should feel as good on the inside about your Jewellery as you look wearing it on the outside. Which is why we donate £1 for every piece of jewellery we sell to an wonderful elephant charity 'Save The Elephants'.
