Jen Hamley's Profile

About

Hello.
My name is Jen and I am an accessories designer living in Bristol with my yoga teaching husband, Ben, and our cat, PLB.

After 3 years of specialising in creating bespoke alternative wedding hair-pieces and veils for customers worldwide, I have decided to change the direction of my business. My new chapter embraces my love for fashion and unusual apparel - my new collections will include stylish bags, purses and clutches. I love creating new accessories to make an old outfit feel new again.

I adore bold colours and wild patterns, I also have a bit of a magpie complex with anything that sparkles. Heaven is a pair of brightly coloured, impractical, crystal covered shoes, like the ones I wore to our wedding in 2012.

I am freakishly good at packing a lot of things into small spaces (all those hours playing Tetris were not wasted).

I am drawn to lakes, rivers and woodland, but am equally thrilled by a wild coastline.

I really love making things for myself – I’m a total sucker for a DIY tutorials! Friends are always asking how I make things so I’ve started writing my own photo tutorials when I’ve developed new techniques to share the love. They can be found on my Blog: Http://www.headfulloffeathers.com

I grew up in the Peak District in the North West of England and have lived in many places. I’ve spent more time working abroad than I have in the UK - including France, The Netherlands, Canada, the United States and aboard luxury yachts on the Med. The mountains are where I love to be and have spent 5 winter seasons working and snowboarding every day I could.

I am terrified of slugs.

I have a BA honours degree in 3D design from the University of Northumbria in Newcastle and have studied millinery with Rose Corey in London.

I set up Head Full of Feathers back in 2009 while working in Vancouver, Canada. The company that started off as a hobby has continued to grow and change as I have. I love that it reflects my personality.

I am slightly obsessed with Instagram and Facebook and get SO EXCITED when I see customers posting pictures that I can share - I love my customers!
We are one BIG, sparkly happy family.

I believe in believing in yourself.
