For those who give comfort with caring and tendernessAngel of Healing$20.00Description
“This was the first piece that I sculpted in the summer of 1999. It came about intuitively, and so it was natural that the result ended up being very open to interpretation. The bird can be protection, comfort or healing. When I created it, I was thinking about the idea of fragility and how we sometimes need to heal our inside — our soul. A bird is so fragile and vulnerable … a metaphor for our inner feelings. This piece helped define Willow Tree.”
Each day, hope anewAngel of Hope$20.00Description
“I love the idea of lighting a candle for someone, or for a wish, or a thought … keeping it alive, carrying it forward. So this angel is sheltering and protecting a small candle with a little gold-leafed flame. It’s important that the flame is small — sometimes it’s just a little flicker or a fleeting sign that can give you hope. Sometimes for me, focusing on seemingly insignificant things — events or happenings that I might ordinarily take for granted — it’s those things, those little miracles, which can give hope. I wanted Angel of Hope to be a positive piece. Kind of like the little spark that keeps us going.”

I hope this figure can be a reminder of people in our lives who inspire us with their strength and courage every day.”

I got this beautiful Musical Angel from my lovely sister for Christmas. I saw the Willow Tree Angels the first time on my summer school in Finland at the Christmas village from Rovanemi; it is exactly on the polar circle. There I bought an Angel for my parents, for my sister, for my best friend and for myself. I like the different meaning of the angel and you can tell somebody something very easy with these angels what is very difficult to say. So I bought a new one for a very special friend when she stopped working with me and she went on a big journey and I have to say goodbye. These angels help me a lot to say to important people what I feel. Also these angels which I bought for myself hearten me a lot. And now I got my first angel as a present from my sister. It is this encourage musical angel. I love it. It is a present from my lovely sister and she chose this one. It should encourage me on my life points. For me my life will change the next year a lot and I think a lot of times about it. I thought suddenly about my life changes and at the same time I felt no fear, I felt strong because I know my family stands by my side and I feel connected by everyone who have this encourage angel because I am not the only one who have to make decisions. It feels like a lot of people stand by my side. I am very happy now and I don´t forget this feeling, when hard times come.Read More >

I was in the local Hallmark store doing window shopping. I enjoy looking at your pieces,which I have brought for family and friends over the years. Even though I never received one or bought one for myself,I was drawn to this piece. When I saw it was Courage,I needed to get this for myself, because at this time in my life I really need it. Steve, my husband of 22 1/2 years died four months ago,of a massive heart attack at the age of 63. And I need all the courage to face life alone without him by my side. So I picked it up and wound it up, to hear "Ode To Joy." The tears started to come down my cheeks. You see, that is the song that Steve and I walked down the aisle to after the minster said that we were husband and wife. When we planned the wedding Steve didn't care what I had played before or during, but he wanted us to walk down the aisle to "Ode To Joy." The before and after was John Denver music, all played by a trio playing a mountain dulcimer,fiddle and guitar. Needless to say I brought this one on the spot. I love listening to it.Read More >

I received this wonderful Willow Tree piece from the folks/friends that I work with. Things had been hectic at work. I make it a point to not let the guff trickle down to my team but a recent occurrence at work caused my team to receive harsh feedback. It did not go over well with my team and they felt bad for how it was reflected towards me. So, this piece of "Courage" was a show of support from them to me. I have told them many times what a great team they are and how lucky I am! This piece will always be a wonderful reminder of this great group of people I get to call my team!! They are simply the best!Read More >

Each year since my divorce, my girls have been giving me a Willow Tree figure for Christmas. This year, after my older daughter went away to college, and my younger one endured some trying times with my ex-husband, they gave me the musical Angel of Courage. This touched my heart, because they know that the last four years have not been easy. They are my angels!Read More >
