Artist Betsy Halford:
The first angel I created was for a friend who had just adopted a child from Guatemala. I wanted to give her a gift that her daughter could keep as she grew up. I decided on a guardian angel as a symbol of protection. This first angel incorporated several Guatemalan items which were blended with an image of a US flag. These guardian angels have become my gift of choice for baby and house warming gifts. Each angel has a name and a story. The stories are influenced by the elements that I use in creating the angel. The stories are meant to be fun and quirky and give the angel a personality. Each angel is unique and is intended as a watchful protector.
