The inspirational story behind our wingnut angel jewelry.

All of our uniquely hand-crafted Angel Necklaces, Angel Ornaments, Angel Keychains and Road Angels were inspired by a 911 Hero Paramedic. In 2011 my dear friend was diagnosed with cancer after working at ground zero in the days and weeks after September 11th. I struggled at first to come up with an original idea of how I could be supportive and help her in some way to win her battle. I then remembered how she loved collecting nuts and bolts as a child and carried them around in her pockets wherever she went. She also always told me how she felt protected by an angel in a few instances in her life when she was near death. It was at that point when it all came together. I designed the first Angel Necklace with my dad's old wingnuts and other miscellaneous metal pieces. I thought that making these Angel Necklaces would not only be a way of honoring her service as a NYC Paramedic but they could possibly raise some money to help ease her financial burden while trying to beat this cancer. It warms my heart to say that we had a very successful fundraiser and she is now cancer free. In doing this we received such wonderful feedback on our unique design and we were told several stories of how these Angels had helped so many other people in the process. It was then when my wife and I knew this was bigger than we had anticipated...and Rock & Metal Treasures was born.


"The Angel keychain is here! It is absolutely precious & very special. I was an art teacher & I sold fine jewelry for a large company in my off time. There were many nice things but nothing compares to what your pieces mean and how they came to be. After dealing with manufactured this is a real treasure. I will be buying more – they are lovely. I am retired now and want to be an artist working from home, a painter. Your work has certainly been inspirational to me."
- Jan Lunde

"I love my road angel, she watches over the girls and I as we drive. What an inspirational story behind the angels. My childhood a matter of fact he lived around the block from us. His name was Peter Nelson he was a Huntington Manor Volunteer fireman AND a NYC firefighter. He sacrificed his life that day on 9/11 and when I catch my road angel on my rear view mirror I think of him and remember...and smile! Thanks ladies we love our Angels!"
-Deneise Robinson

"I wear beautiful angel necklaces that have a unique form of symbolism for me. They have metal, wire, stone, glass and other facets of creativity that bring me strength while the gentleness of the angel calms me to the point of remembering that I am a good person learning to relive life in a POSITIVE way. Out of my way if you're a negative force."
-Alison Holmes

"I LOVE IT! The entire presentation is gorgeous…so well done! You do beautiful, thoughtful work! Once I saw everything I felt like I really had something very special in my hands. I will have you in mind when I am looking to purchase future gifts."
-Monica Fraioli Cole

"We all love your angels hanging from mirrors and even from the guys keychains, which shows you how amazing they are. They are very special, you have created an amazing gift of love and something to share with everyone."
-Joy Ambrosio Treanor

"Deb, I want to thank you so much for the necklace you created for me. The way you set the stones and integrated the colors is just awesome. Not only was it a special gift, but also a piece of history. I am so thankful you were able to take care of such an important project for me."
-Elizabeth Doyle

Dear Deborah, I received the beautiful Angel today and the timing couldn't have been more perfect...tomorrow would have been Anthony's 26th birthday. He loved the color blue and the Angel is just perfect. It was so very kind of you to make it for me. I will cherish your kindness always.
-Cindy FOREVER Anthony's mom (Mannino)

"I LOVE your original jewelry. I have bought some pieces as gifts for friends and they have all enjoyed them. What was special to me was how you gift wrapped them and enclosed the touching story of why you started making your jewelry. I truly admire your creativity. Now I am buying one for myself!"
-Gigi Eastman

Welcome to Rock & Metal Treasures! All of my uniquely hand-crafted Angels were inspired by my dear friend, a 911 Hero Paramedic, who was diagnosed with cancer after she worked at ground zero in the days and weeks following September 11th. I have been inspired by her and this powerful angelic symbol that gives so many people strength, hope and courage to persevere through life's adversity. In my Etsy Shop I hope you find your own very special Angel that will help guide & protect you.
