Designer and Owner
I create beautiful feather hat and brooch pins featuring stunning iridescent feathers including guinea fowl, pheasant, peacock, duck, goose and sometimes grouse.
When I moved to Aberdeenshire over eighteen years ago, I was drawn to the abundance of colour in the pheasants that didn’t make it on the country roads. The beautiful pheasant colouring was in stark contrast to the tarred roads and a trip to the shop, in pheasant season, mostly included a few road side stops to pick up unfortunate birds. This was the beginning of Wendy Goode feather accessories.
Today, my trusted network of Scottish gamekeepers ensures a sustainable supply of seasonal feathers and shotgun and rifle casings that I upcycle into beautiful countryside accessories.
I’m a talented country craftswoman inspired by the rich country colours, landscapes and game birds, we all thrive in beautiful Scotland. I use a range of feathers sourced from shoots across Scotland as well as upcycling rifle brass to make hand-crafted feather hat and brooch pins for customers living in every corner of the United Kingdom and beyond.
My dedication and hard work have led to strong partnerships with leading countryside brands, providing them with feather pins for their own off the peg hat designs, as well as creating my own range of feather products for sale here.
I love getting to know my customers to understand their style and personality. I believe we need to feel comfortable in whatever we are wearing to feel confident and truly express ourselves. That means a hat pin or brooch must complement the wearer, not overwhelm them. I hope you’ll get in touch to work with me on your own bespoke feather accessory.
