Feather Leather Designs - Our Story

Meet Kelly, the designer. Carol, the doer. Mary Beth, the driver. Mother and daughters. Sisters and friends. And the three women behind the FLD brand.

Feather Leather Designs, launched in 2018, specializes in jewelry creations made of leather, inspired by life. Feather Leather Designs is owned and operated by sisters, Mary Beth Holdford and Kelly Gaydosh, along with their mom, Carol Herb. After years of wearing heavy earrings that were literally splitting lobes, this trio fell in love with the lightweight yet stylish alternative of leather. Thus...Feather Leather Designs was born. Today, FLD also offers custom leather keycuffs and cufflinks.

Mary Beth, a former corporate communications executive for a Global Fortune 500 company, is a part-time communications consultant and full-time mom of three active boys. Her ‘can do’ attitude and business acumen make her the perfect person to oversee the day-to-day operations of FLD and its brand. Younger sis Kelly is a 2nd grade teacher in our local school district and the mom of two girls. Earning the title of ‘Best Dressed’ in high school and studying art in college, Kelly's fashion-forward, artistic mindset bodes well for the business. And mom, Carol, is retired and never says “no” to a request for help with the kids, to run an errand, or even start a new business venture! She is the glue that holds this family together and key to maintaining excellent customer service!

As always, thank you for sharing the FLD love!
