About

The Feathered Elephant

Hello, and welcome to the Feathered Elephant. Our shop offers an eclectic mix of old world charm and modern beats to create one of a kind jewelry for the modern woman and men. Our jewelry is designed with the modern gypsy in mind. Each piece is uniquely handcrafted to be works of wearable art that flow from the heart using the highest quality materials.

Our shop offers a wide variety of price points for even the most frugal of fashionistas. We strive to offer my clients a five-star customer experience with quick shipping and fast communication.

The Feathered Elephant was officially started in 2009 even though our owner and designer, Shelly Owen, has been designing and creating jewelry for over 20 years.

Our jewelry designs have been featured on various websites and blogs, magazines, at the red carpet premiers, and well as being included in GBK Production's luxury pre-event celebrity gift lounge in honor of the 2015 Primetime Emmy nominees and presenters. A pair of our earrings were even gifted to the stylist of the Hart of Dixie as part of a collaborative gift bag from The Artisan Group®. They were selected to be worn for the fortune teller, Madame Van Horn, (played by Deborah Lacey) in the opening sequence of Season 3, Episode 17 entitled "A Good Run of Bad Luck" which aired on April 12, 2014 and seen in the wedding scene of episode 22 entitled "Second Chances" which aired on May 16, 2014.

We have created DIY projects for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, Michaels Craft Stores, Meijer's, and A.C. Moore as well as Walmart and Walmart Canada.

Shelly Owen has been a Cousin Creative Circle Ambassador for six years allowing her to a brand ambassador for the company which is one of the largest manufacturers of jewelry tools and jewelry making supplies. She is also a certified jewelry instructor.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

For all copper & brass jewelry, simply wipe your items off with a soft dry cloth & store in a box or zipper storage bag. Inserting a piece of chalk into your bag or box will help to prevent tarnish as well.

Never spray cologne directly on copper/brass jewelry as this will cause the protective seal to break down & lead to tarnish.

Do not apply lotions or creams while wearing your jewelry as this will lead to tarnish.

Do not sunbath or swim while wearing copper/brass or any plated jewelry.

If pronounced tarnish & patina develop, soak in acetone to remove any remaining sealer. Then clean with a brass/copper polish.

Patina is a natural process for brass & copper. It is in no way a flaw or defect in the metal.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom and personalized orders are always welcome; however, NO refunds or exchanges are accepted on these items as they are customized to your specific color and style.

If purchasing a ready-made piece listed in our shop that you wish to change, a $10 redesign fee will be added to cover labor and materials.

Why does it take so long for ear cuffs to be shipped?

Ear cuffs take extra time due to these items are not mass-produced by an outside company. Each ear cuff is created when an order is placed. They are cut, filed and formed by hand to ensure the highest quality for our customers.

Copper and brass ear cuffs a bit take longer as they have to be sealed to prevent tarnish and patina. Adding a few extra days to the shipping time allows for the sealant to properly cure before being packaged and shipped.

How are your ready-to-ship items stored before shipping?

All of our finished jewelry pieces as well as our components are in our private studio and kept away from smoke and pets. This in mind, pet hair does travel on our clothes unaware. So, please take care if you are allergic to cats.

How will my items ship?

Your lovely new jewelry pieces will be shipped in a cardboard jewelry gift box with padding inside the box. All earrings and ear cuffs will be on a card and wrapped in cellophane. Necklaces are usually wrapped with care in colored tissue paper and placed into a cardboard jewelry gift box. More simplistic necklaces will arrive on a card and wrapped in cellophane and tissue paper within a cardboard gift box.

All orders are shipped in padded mailers and/or a mailing box.

Can I return or exhange the jewelry in your shop?

ONLY IF THE ITEMS ARE UNWORN AND IN THEIR ORIGINAL CONDITION. This is due to hygiene issues. We offer our customers first-quality, NEW jewelry merchandise. Not worn jewelry items.

Earrings and ear cuffs CANNOT be returned due to the same hygiene issue. We consider these items as "intimate" items.
