A few years 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 and bracelet design shown in my shop I have created a new, smaller set, offered here as earrings. I’ve seen the wing 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 of my own design and I produce and hand finish them in limited quantities. Because each item is individually produced, please allow for the slight variations that make each piece unique. The left and right wing are distinct from each other, each from my hand forged models. Each wing is about 1 5/8″ long by 5/8″ wide, of sterling silver, and here the pair is accented with moonstone beads. One wing hangs lower than the other so that the entire pendant is about 3″ long. The wings hang from a hand made circle that joins to a 16″ sterling chain with a hand made S hook which closes the necklace in the front. This necklace can be made longer if needed, just send a convo for time/cost estimate.
