Fallen Angel Brass is proud to feature the glass work of Wendy from Creeky Beads in the UK. Being handmade, your particular headpins will vary slightly from the listing photo. Headpins in the listing photos are representative the color, shape and style.
"I have been making glass beads for about 7 years, following an obsession with making jewellery. I had the privilege of watching a lampworker and knew immediately that I had to try it. After investing in the equipment, my hobby (new obsession) began."

Fallen Angel Brass is available exclusively through this Etsy shop.
Our items are not purchased from a wholesaler, but are created specifically for our shop in collaboration with American metal manufacturers and our New England master finisher. The small, family run businesses of this region take great pride in their craftsmanship and materials, under strict supervision of U.S. metal and labor regulations. No lead, cadmium or nickel is used and all labor is fairly paid and safely conducted in highly regulated working conditions in compliance with the US Fair Labor Standards Act. Your supplies from our shop are not "off the rack," but are exclusive and unique. We are proud to offer this product to the Etsy community.
Our pewter and brass are finished by one very small New England family business, not a factory. Each piece of Fallen Angel Brass is hand rubbed twice and finished with a non toxic lacquer for durability. Variations in the dark finish are by design and part of the unique Fallen Angel Brass patina. We strive for uniformity and consistency, but also value the variation that comes from the one-man process that creates our finish. With wear, our finish will age, but in a pleasing antiqued way. Our brass is meant to be worn and aged further with use.

Our customers may use the trademarked brand names "Fallen Angel Brass" and "Bad Girl Castings" for marketing items that include genuine Fallen Angel Brass and Bad Girl Castings components.
Our product photos are taken by Karen in natural daylight with a point and shoot digital camera. The color you see is the real color of the paper background and the Fallen Angel Brass components. Some photos appear "sepia toned," but they are actually the true color of the product and the background paper. Changes in color vary according to the natural light and the variations in the dark finish which are by design and part of the unique Fallen Angel Brass patina.
All supply product photos are taken by Karen.
Background papers and ephemera in photos are authentic antiques.
If you would like to submit photos of your own jewelry using Fallen Angel Brass or Bad Girl Castings components, please include your photos in a convo to us. We are always especially interested in unique designs, good photos and finished pieces that feature components for which we do not have any examples. If your example fits our promotional needs, we will display it in our shop with your shop link clearly visible. We are happy to extend a $10 gift certificate per photo to all artists whose work appears in our shop.
Your reviews are very meaningful to us because we also shop on Etsy and we order jewelry supplies here, just as you do. Every review is carefully read and appreciated, for our aim is to provide friendly, accurate and speedy service. If for any reason you feel that we have fallen short of our aspirations, consider writing a convo to us with your concerns. We welcome the opportunity to turn any situation into a happy one for all.
