Fallen Angel Jewelry, an offshoot of Fallen Angel Brass®, is the creation of Karen & Tina, two jewelry artists who met here on Etsy. We understand that there are those who do not make jewelry themselves, but who would love to own pieces of jewelry made using our findings enriched with our fine patina. We love working with fine brass and envisioned a line of deeply aged decorative brass stampings, filigree and chain. We could not find brass that was as deep, dark and charred as we would like, so we decided to create a new line ourselves. This, of course, sparked the creative juices and unrelenting need to work with the findings ourselves -- hence, Fallen Angel Jewelry.

In creating jewelry for Fallen Angel Jewelry, we do use beads, gemstones and cameos not of U.S. origin (unlike, as you will see below, Fallen Angel Brass®), but all findings used are from our brass business, and are entirely U.S. made.

About Fallen Angel Brass®
http://www.etsy.com/shop/FallenAngelBrass

Fallen Angel Brass®, unique in its dark, exquisite elegance, speaks of the beauty and depth forged by the flames of trial and renewal. As we progress through life, we are shaped by the fires of age and experience - each of us made all the more alluring for having gone through our own unique travails and adventures. The deeply aged and softly gleaming quality of Fallen Angel Brass reflects and honors the fallen angel in each of us.

We work with brass artisans, chain manufacturers and master finishers in New England - the cradle of American jewelry. The small, family run manufacturers of this region take great pride in their craftsmanship and materials, under strict supervision of U.S. metal regulations.
No lead, cadmium or nickel is used and all labor is safely conducted and fairly paid.
We buy only US made brass, which makes finding certain raw brass pieces rather tricky. We would love to carry lever back ear wires and boxy, vintage style lobster clasps, for instance, but to our knowledge there are no US sources for these. Even though some pieces can be hard to find and our stock is sometimes limited, the upside to carrying only US made brass is that we can say in all confidence that the brass in our shop is pure, safe and created in highly regulated and safe working conditions.

Each piece, from our tiniest jump ring to our most resplendent focal filigree, is forged in family owned, generations-old workshops. Every single component in our shop is pure brass. The pieces are finished by hand rubbing and a thin laquer is applied for durability.
Our pieces are designed, produced and handled with great care at every turn.

Fallen Angel Brass® - a lifetime of beauty in every detail.
