Here is the newest member of our angel family! I dont know whats up, but everything I see seems to lend itself to becoming one!
She started off as a glass candle holder that I found in our ARF animal rescue thrift store. So, with a pair of wire cutter pliers, some jewelry wire and some old copper flashing, she began to take shape.
A beautiful old glass door nob became her head which I attached her wings to with the wire, secured in back with a bead. The nob didnt quite fit in the opening of the candleholder, so I had to do some sanding and grinding to get it shaved down a little.
now she joins the others. Who knows how many more may come to be...Well just have to see!
