Open for Business!

Now that I am officially reopening my Etsy store for business, let me tell you what is new and improved about my wings.

As much as I loved the frame design that I had spent eight years developing, I wanted to make my wings sturdier and for the back piece (which holds everything together) to have a smaller footprint, which in turn, makes the wings look more natural.  So I went back to the drawing board, and came up with a new idea.

As you can see, my wings are now built on a sturdy fabricated metal ring, and the straps are now attached to metal D-rings to allow for more movement and comfortable wear.  But no worries - they are still hinged to fold open and closed for ease of movement.  The new design leaves the center of the back open, which not only looks more natural, it makes it super easy to display your wings - just hang them from a decorative hook and you have a beautiful piece of wall art to enjoy!

But because of the design change, I am left with no where to place an unobtrusive tag.  Instead I will sign each pair and attach a custom made, removable hanging tag which will included the style name, manufacture date, series number and care instructions as a certificate of proof that your wings are an original work of art.

I have also decided to retire some of my older designs to make way for new ones.  So if you are looking for something in particular, please check in as I may not be making it any more - but I would be happy to offer alternative ideas.
