When my very good friend Megan, who happens to be a ridiculously talented self-taught metalsmith and jewelry maker, told me that she was planning on moving to Texas soon, my first thought was “WHAT THE HELL?! WHY ARE YOU LEAVING ME?!” But when she asked if I could help spread the word of these special pendants she made to help her with moving expenses, I said, “Duh. Of course!”
I have had the honor of receiving some of Megan’s beautiful creations as presents, some of which you may have seen on my Instagram, and she puts so much love and care into everything she makes. These pendants, entitled “No Direct Flight,” are no different. In fact, this design is one that she gifts to those who are most special to her. It features a set of angel wings placed on a copper sheet that Megan hand cut herself, and used vitreous enamels for the image. The jumpring is sterling, you can easily slip the pendant onto your favorite chain. As you can see in the pictures, not one pendant is the same due the nature of manufacturing things completely by hand.
This is perfect to give to the guardian angel you have in your life — whether they be human or four-legged and furry like Megan’s cat Dave (pictured below). And at just $20, it’s a steal!
This pendant can easily be slipped into geek inspired ensembles too! There’s the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who, Castiel from Supernatural, Kid Icarus (or Icarus from actually mythology), Archangel from X-Men, etc, etc.
