Although Liat was born and raised outside of NYC, and has since returned to her Long Island roots, Liat's gypsy soul took her traveling around the world for many years where she was deeply inspired by the many pieces of jewelry she discovered in all the different cultures. She always felt the most precious pieces however were those that were given as gifts, and in that spirit, Liat created Tailfeather Designs.
In ancient times, most jewelry served not only as accessories to beautify but more significantly as an ornament that brought protection, luck, love, and good fortune to the wearer. Tailfeather Designs are inspired from this tradition and aim to be more than a beautiful piece of jewelry. Each item in the collection is designed to take us back to our tribal roots, while bringing out the graceful, elegant, goddess in all of us.
Liat has always been fascinated with the healing abilities of crystals and the magical essence of semi-precious stones & gems. Every collection reflects a place in the world Liat has traveled & was inspired by while designing it. Some of these places include Maui, Venice Beach, CA, Long Beach, NY, Israel, Costa Rica, and Brazil. Each handcrafted piece tells a story and carries with it many blessings that have been intentionally infused into it during its creation.
The careful process of hand-crafting each Tailfeather Design piece involves a few, intentional steps.
• All materials are sourced from the highest quality producer. As the piece is being hand-crafted, blessings are infused into it throughout the process. These blessings are directed for each stones headlining quality to be unlocked & felt by the wearer.
• Once the piece is complete, it is left on our Crystal Activation Station for a period of time. The Activation Station is a bed of highly charged healing quartz, heart-opening rose quartz, malachite, and cleansing selenite. These crystals are recharged at every full moon.
• Sage, sweetgrass and/or Palo Santo are used to infuse blessings and love into the jewelry before it is packaged and sold.
Our intention behind Tailfeather Designs is all these blessings be carried inside the jewelry and onto the person wearing it. In the original spirit of gift giving, this is our gift to you.
