Your Guardian Necklace

You know how sisters are. When Barbara Gordon saw the sterling silver little angel necklace that her sister, Bridget Cella (that’s her with Barbara on the right), found in a heavenly shop in North Carolina, she began — er, praying for one. So Bridget got one for Barbara, and they both proudly wore their angels. “I began to think of it as a guardian angel that connected us,” Barbara says. Barbara decided to pass the gift along by sharing the angel with Daily Grommet. (We love you, Barbara!) Of course, not just any necklace would inspire this kind of devotion. Created by Sue and Victor Roggio, silversmiths with nearly four decades of experience, the little angel hangs on a contemporary 18” beaded chain — and packs a lot of personality into a small package. The little angel has bare toes, pointy wings and her head is tilted to one side as if she’s pondering the universe. She’d made a sweet gift for a new baby, drop a first communicant to her knees, and might even make mom forget the day you broke her favorite vase. Of course, if you have a deserving sister, you know she wants one.

    Good afternoon! I was so happy when Daily Grommet contacted us about this special necklace, which I originally designed for a friend to give to her mother who was battling cancer. It means a great deal that our jewelry brings joy and significance to people. Each day brings with it joy and troubles, and this precious angel of humility and protection reminds us to connect with our spirit and be less afraid of difficulty.

    I've found that this necklace is popular with a wide variety of ages, from little girls to grandmothers -- and makes a wonderful gift for many occasions, including Mother's Day. I look forward to reading your comments and am happy to answer questions. Enjoy!
