Feathers And Wings Fine Jewellery is created with the intention to display beauty, grace and simplicity through a creative medium. Based in London UK, metalsmith and maker, Jane Bannor, specialises in gold jewellery, solely crafting each piece by hand. The style is bohemian luxe with a touch of minimalism and she creates these pieces with the bohemian, conscious woman in mind. Jane’s belief is that true beauty lies within, aside from today’s cultural strive for perfection; that it lies in life’s precious and unique moments. It is here that her inspiration is found from the moments in life we each create. She creates lifetime pieces that exude both light and beauty. Pieces that are to be worn by you and passed down to yours. Feathers And Wings is not just just another jewellery brand, but a community built on individual women making conscious choices to purchase jewellery that is both ethically made and consciously crafted, following each of them along their life’s journey and making each day more memorable.
for you, inspired by you...

Meet The Maker
My earliest memory of jewellery is of my Mother. She would (and still does to this day) always adorn herself in stacking bangles, elaborate necklaces and gemstone rings. A trait seen amongst the nobles of our heritage: Ghana's Asante culture. Some of these items she passed on to me. I wore them for my graduation and many birthdays. It is a pastime sewn into the heart of Feathers And Wings.
I spent my Tuesdays in 2014 volunteering with the women from 'The Waterfall', a women's recovery group. Having taught myself how to make jewellery, I in turn, taught the women as part of their creativity session. During these sessions, I saw redemption, healing and freedom overcome the hurt and pain of the past. I watched as love conquered fear, hopelessness and heaviness.
I started Feathers and Wings not only to do more for The Waterfall by giving my time and donating to the charity, but to encourage others that it is possible to do and achieve all that you dare to dream. With Feathers and Wings, I was able to combine my love for the arts with the gift of compassion. Something I had been longing to do for so long. These days, I create lifetime treasures that will be worn by you and yours. Treasures that excite you, jewels that reignite joy from a special day and also remind you of the strength you hold.
"He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings shall you trust. His truth shall be your shield and buckler." - Psalm 91v4
