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 slight variation. The left and right wing are distinct from each other, each from a hand forged model. These smaller wings are each about 1 1/4″ long by 1/2″ wide, of sterling silver, substantial yet light weight enough for comfortable wear.
