Trained in fine art, designer and jeweler Hannah Ferrara began making sculptural jewelry after searching long & hard for the pieces she herself wanted to wear. Inspired by her travels, modern design, ancient relics, and an appreciation for well made objects and heirlooms, her line Another Feather includes handcrafted metal made jewelry and simple everyday adornments paired down to their basic forms. Her collections are often described as ‘jewelry for the non-jewelry wearer’, and embrace the japanese concept of wabi-sabi. Each piece is designed to be worn day in and out, with a focus on comfort, material, and interaction with the body. Traditional metal smithing techniques and tools are used to craft each item, using recycled metals from sustainable sources and low impact studio practices. Each piece of jewelry is made with care and given special attention to detail, embracing natural imperfections of the hand at work.
All jewelry is handcrafted in her Portland studio.
