A while back a young friend asked me to repair her broken wings… I have been enamored with the idea of wings ever since. I fixed hers up but not before making a little sketch of how I might interpret the idea, and now in addition to the necklace design shown in my shop I have also fashioned the wings into a bracelet. I’ve seen this theme now and again, but here I have tried to create something a little more special. Meant for the seeker of freedom, watcher of birds, believer in angels, and for those angels here on earth that occasionally cross our paths if we are so fortunate.
Like no other, these wings are exclusively my own design and I produce and hand finish each one in very limited quantities. Because each bracelet or necklace is individually produced, allow for the slight variation that makes each piece unique. The left and right wing are distinct from each other, each from a hand forged model. Each wing is about 1 5/8″ long by 5/8″ wide, of sterling silver, and here the pair is accented with moonstone beads. The ready to ship bracelet currently available has 2 size options, approximately 7.25″ – 7.5″ (similar to the one shown in photo 6). It has a beaded cluster in the center of 2 wings, hand forged spacers, and a hand made hook that links to either ring to adjust the size. Need a specific size? Please inquire.
You can find my other blackbird designs (necklaces, earrings & ring) in the “garden & creatures” or “blackbird” section here. My other blackbird listings, based on availability, include variations in size and configuration of the necklaces, earrings, and one heck of a ring.
