In the beginning of the year I joined the Year Of the Jewelry 2011 challenge. Every week there is a new theme which serves as inspiration. Week 54 of the challenge was themed ‘In memory of’. http://www.bleilysgems.com/YearofJewelry2011/

When my mother was born, my granddad who was Italian named her ‘Angelina’: Little angel. My mother died young and these little angels are made in her memory.

I sawed the angel shapes from copper sheet, filed them and soldered 2 brass ornate paisley wings on top. To finish, a sterling silver raised heart was also soldered to the body. I very slightly brushed the copper.

The angel in the last picture is painted by Giotto. Giotto is considered the first in a line of great artists who contributed to the Italian Renaissance. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giotto_di_Bondone

Length of the earrings (incl. sterling silver ear wires): 50mm (2”)

All metal used is raw copper, brass and sterling silver - to keep it shiny and clean, simply use a silver cloth or a soft toothbrush whenever it is needed.

To extend the life of this unique jewelry, please do not bring in contact with oils, perfume, acid etc.

Mail is regular ground/air mail, non-insured. Although mail is quite reliable, I don't take responsibility for items getting lost in the mail. If you choose registered mail, I will gladly get accurate additional information for you.

Wear in beauty, good health and happiness!.
