Silver Angel Wings and Crown

Gold blue jay crown with silver angel wings image by Whitney Images

This mosaic jeweled crown with blue jays looks great as a stand alone piece, or can be used to compliment an existing element, such as the silver mosaic angel wings. I’ve long been a fan of the crown motif and have often used it in my work over the years, but I’m really enjoying creating these elaborately embellished crowns with glass crystal jewels.

This mosaic jeweled crown is part of a large scale commissioned piece I recently completed. I’ve used the crown motif many times in my work over the years, but this is the most elaborate embellishment it has ever received…and I must say, it was so fun! I will definitely be making more jeweled crowns in the future.

Materials Used: particle board, foam insulation, styrofoam balls, vintage blue bird china, amber mirrored glass, assorted glass crystal gems and rhinestones, brass stamped frame, glue, sanded tile grout

I’ve been making these sweet little mosaic birds since around 2005.  They have evolved over time and no longer have pipe cleaner feet…after all, when you’re flying it’s more aerodynamic to have your feet tucked against your body, right?  I’ve recently started making the wings out of brass, copper or aluminum that I stamp with a special phrase and some are also adorned with a metal crown.  Very soon they will be available for purchase in my new Etsy Shop.  Stay tuned!
