Angels - Baby - White FeatherSold Out
ARTISAN | HAND-CRAFTED | ETHICALLY SOURCED
Coming to us from the Baviaans region of South Africa's beautiful Karoo, the hand-crafted angels are produced by small craft cooperatives located within two remote villages. The angel project is their only form of income and the success of the project has contributed a great deal to improving their lives and that of their communities.
Originally intended as a Christmas Tree decoration, the angels make beautiful gifts and can have a variety of uses. We have seen them hung off the rear view mirror in a car, above a baby's crib, gifted or purchased in memory of a lost loved one or simply to add to a collection.
Size: 7-8 cm in length
Material: knit or crocheted wire with beads and ostrich feather (locally sourced loose pieces)
Colour: White Ostrich feather bodies. Bead colours noted below on each angel
All angel styles have names, many of which are after the ladies who make them and all have a meaning.
Baby Elizna: Stability. Gold beads
Baby Levona: Frankincense. Clear beads
Baby Lisa: Oath of God. White beads
Baby Marinda: Of the Sea. Light blue beads
Baby Melanie: The Dark Lady Blue Beads(reference to the dark vast skies of the Karoo)
Baby Valenta: Be Strong. Light pink beads
**** Baby Angels Stella and Levona both have heads small enough to allow them to ship as an envelope, making them the most economical angels to ship if only one is purchased. The light weight nature of the angels means multiple angels can be shipped in any parcel larger than an envelope, making shipping costs more economical.
