An Inside Look at Moon Pony

Moon Pony is Jenna Feldman from Oakland, California. Jenna, who was a co-founder of Rock Paper Scissors arts collective in Oakland, has been crafting since 2003 and is now a hairstylist at Peter Thomas Hair in Berkeley. Inspired by 1930's hairstyle design books, lack of awesome head pieces, and fashion inspiration kaila "Coco" Chanel, Moon Pony whipped together a flower headband/ headpiece to wear to a friends wedding which was "garden party" themed.

From there Moon Pony has flourished with hair accessory designs. Tulle and feathers, flowers, leather feathers, ribbons and gems have all crossed paths to inspire Moon Pony in her quest of pretty hair wear. Moon Pony has also started a simple line of reconstructed and handmade dresses and tops! This line uses recycled fabrics and new fabrics to create easy to wear, pretty pieces with an earthy feel.

Check out Moon Pony's designs in the Pretty Penny Mineral Fashion Show on October 25th. Her fashions can also be found for sale anytime at The Pretty Penny.
