Christmas Gifts From Wendell August
Each year I try to add a unique Christmas ornament to our Christmas tree. This years limited edition ornament comes from Wendell August Forge. Wendell August Forge are the artisans of fine metals and gifts. Their 2017 Peace Dove Snow Crystal Snow Ornament is nothing short of astonishing.
This collectors edition ornament celebrates one of nature’s most beautiful phenomenons, the snowflake. Each is a delicate symmetry of ice that creates a masterpiece so unique that no two are alike. Each snowflake is a piece of art so fragile that it is created and lost in just seconds.
The limited edition Snow Crystal Ornament is embellished with Swarovski jewels. Since 1895, Swarovski has shared it’s mastery of light and sparkle with the world. Each of these brilliant cut crystals, from this world-renowned crystal brand, are hand placed on the ornament to create a stunning holiday ornament.
Each ornament comes with a certificate of authenticity and is one ornament in a series of only 5,000.
Wendell August’s expert artisans hand-etch their original designs. Each piece is then hand wrought by skilled craftsmen, using an eight-step process with its roots in ancient metalworking techniques.
The makers of both the artist and the craftsman can be found on each piece – the artist’s mark is ‘hidden’ in the design, and the craftsman’s mark can be found on the back of every piece. Their metalcrafters take pride in their work so that you can be proud to display and to gift their unique designs.
If you are looking for other gifts Wendell August has a great selection as well. I’ve been hunting a nice durable cutting board for some time now. They happen to have a walnut cutting board that is as durable as it is beautiful. Something that doesn’t come along often when dealing with cutting boards. Their cutting board selection is part of their partnership with Warther Cutlery and they have been handcrafting since 1902.
This handsome cutting board combines handcrafted walnut with copper to create a show stopping piece for use and display. Wendell August and Warther Cutlery, two great American companies have joined together on this collection of boards that celebrates American craftsmanship.
