The Magic of White Feather Designs

“It is commonly thought in most cultures that feathers are symbols of higher thought, spiritual progression. The line of thought here is that birds were considered divine creatures in primitive/ancient cultures because they are creatures of the sky (heaven) and therefore closer to God. When you find feathers upon your path it could be taken to mean that you are on a higher spiritual path (whether you accept it or not), and it may be a sign of encouragement as you philosophically travel on this path.” -Avia Venefica

So begins our introduction to Breanne Morrow, the talent behind handmade jewelry line White Feather Designs. Starting in 2007, Breanne followed her feathers to Mexico where she studied the art of silversmithing. Filled with newfound knowledge and the inspiration to create, Breanne returned to Canada to begin her jewelry journey.
From necklaces to bracelets, earrings and cuffs, all of Breanne’s pieces are lovingly made by hand with meticulous care. Using brass, gold, silver and copper, Breanne’s muse is the world around her. Her new Boneyard Collection, for example, features a necklace made from a mould of a snake vertebrae. Incorporating vintage jewelry and buttons into many of her pieces, it is impossible to not find something perfectly suited to your personal style in her varied collections!

Looking through her beautiful online galleries, you will be awe-struck by the textures, colours and attention to detail that Breanne has infused into each piece. Every item has a story – one that you can make your own and adapt to any style or mood that may strike you.
 You can browse through all of Breanne’s beautiful collections by visiting White Feather Designs online at http://www.whitefeatherdesigns.net and purchase via Etsy. Better yet, why not come out and visit her and see her designs in person? You can find her at the following events in September!
