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 here they are. 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.
The pendant described in this listing is a petite version of my original, larger wings pendant. Designed for those who love the look of the wings, but are more comfortable with a smaller scale option. See the original larger version here:
Like no other, these wings are of my own design and I produce and hand finish each in limited quantities. Because each pendant is individually produced, please allow for slight variation. The left and right wing are distinct from each other, each from a hand forged model. Each wing is about 1 5/16" long by 1/2" wide, of sterling silver, and here the pair is accented with moonstone and quartz beads. One wing hangs lower than the other so that the entire pendant is about 2 1/4" long. The wings hang from a hand hammered ring that slides on a 16" chain.
