Ep.84: Making your dreams come true with Angela Jarman from Fancy Fairy

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Jan 05, 2018 

Angela was born, raised, and is still living in the Bay Area of California. She studied and worked in the graphic design field for 10 years, but on the side, she has been always fascinated by fantasy worlds and fairies.

She has a background in professional fairy and princess parties and that brought her to designing her own costumes and eventually, wings that she sells to the public.

She started selling iridescent fairy wings when there were none yet on the market because she wanted wings that looked like they could have been plucked from a real fairy.

Angela has been making and selling fairy wings for over 10 years, and as a sole proprietor for 7 of them.Her wings have been used in Victoria Secret fashion shows, on Katy Perry in Every Day is a Holiday,  Music video and in multiple fine art photography projects.
