Ms. Em's Volleyball Angel
Even Angels play Volleyball. This one's wearing her h. s. school colors & her player number, "12". Note the small metal number beads on her halo. Em's now in college, maybe time for uniform change. Note: A basketball or soccer ball could replace the volleyball. 13" x 9" h.
Notice the Baseball Cap. A side shot will be included soon so you can see the cap's bill, made with wire, copper foil & solder.
Loved, safe & secure in his "gilded" cage of hand-formed brass wire & rods. Life-like in size, the bird is of yellow & white wispy with antique brass patina. 9 1/2" h x 7" w.
