A lady, where I work part time, saw my 3D bird house and 3D angels and ask if I could make one earring size. Of course I said YES, what good scrollsawer would not take up a challenge? She wanted the cancer angel that she will finish and make into earrings. She is a breast cancer survivor and that struck a nerve with me as my wife is one, also. Anyway, as I had promised her some time ago I cut the LITTLE guys out this morning. The angel measures 3/4 inches tall and 1/4 inch wide and 3/16 thick. The wings are 5/8 inch wide and 1/4 inch tall.

A fun project and she does not know but she will get the FREE – my choice.

THanks for looking.

Awesome, Jerrell! You are really having a blast with your new saw! I love this little sweetie and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated by your co-worker. Beautiful and intricate work! :)

Jerrell, a good project for a noble cause. I made something similar to this for my wife. She has had too friends and relatives either fight and win, or unfortunately pass on from this disease. In October 2010, she and a girlfriend did the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure (50-miles) in San Diego. She has participated every year, in one form or another, in the Race for the Cure since 1999. Before she headed off to San Diego, I made her a little pink ribbon pendant out of pink lyptus that she wore while walking.

I’m glad you’re giving it to her at no charge.

This is off-topic, but I wanted to correct my post. It was a 60-mile walk that my wife participated in, not 50-miles as I posted. Just want to give credit where credit is due!

Jerrell, have you given this to your co-worker yet?
