Feature Friday #12: Angel wing necklace by Melonie Higashi

August 27th, 2010
** Update: Melonie’s necklace has been purchased (in one hour flat!) via Etsy and is no longer available! If you would like to make an order with Melonie, please contact her directly at

Today’s donation comes from dear friend and über-talented jewelry-maker, Melonie Higashi. Mel has been incredibly supportive of The D.A.D. Project from the get-go, and told me that she chose to contribute an Angel wing necklace “because I think you and Serena are both angels for coming up with this wonderful project.” How sweet is that?

Keeping company with the sterling silver angel wing are a Peruvian opal, a wire wrapped London blue topaz briolette, and a freshwater pearl. The angel wing measures 1-inch (or 2.5 cm) long. The chain measures 18″ (or 45.7 cm) long.

Love, protect, and inspire….

  • Wings are generally symbols of protection.
  • Blue Topaz and the Peruvian Opal are said to promote artistic inspiration/creativity.
  • Freshwater pearls are said to enable someone to accept love.


If you’d like to know a little more about Mel, her gorgeous work  and her quirky sense of humour, take a look at the feature I did on her last year.

Thanks Mel! I’ll share my wakame salad sushi rolls with you ANYtime ;)
