Feather Angel: ValentaSold Out
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 benefiting their communities.
Although originally intended as a Christmas Tree decoration, the angels also 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. The baby angels in particular are a nice size to hang on the rear view mirror of a car.
Valenta, who's name means 'Be Strong', is available with either a cream or white ostrich feather body, felt head, and a soft pink beaded halo.
All of the angel styles have been given names by the crafters who make them, many of which are after the ladies themselves and others within the community.
Please note that the Baby Angels 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.
