Willow Tree is a company known for the simple angel forms without facial features that are treasured and placed in a special spot in people's homes as a reminder of love. Willow Tree angels make wonderful gifts because they are beautiful to look at and they also bear special messages -- as angels are supposed to do -- between the giver and the receiver of the gift. These messages are part of the angel's design, and include such sentiments as love, friendship, and freedom. As such, they are perfect as a gift of encouragement between mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, friend and friend, husband and wife.
Susan Lordi, the creator of the Willow Tree Angels, has been crafting these figurines since 2000. She carves each sculpture, which is then cast in resin and trimmed with metal wire. Each piece is lovingly painted by hand.
Willow Tree Angel figurines are fun to collect and look beautiful displayed together in a group. The ornament variety are lovely on a Christmas tree, too, and can be displayed hanging somewhere else when the Christmas tree is taken down for the year. Susan Lordi designs a new ornament each year, This year's special angel is the Trellis Angel Ornament. It makes a great friendship gift to hang on someone's tree.
