About the Evergreen Angel™ Jewelry Collection ...
Evergreen AngelsTM are Made in the USA
Each year, the angel pendants are designed in Colorado by a collaboration between local artists and a jewelry designer. They are cast in the silversmith tradition of Paul Revere here in the United States.
Since 1993, a portion of the proceeds from each sale has benefitted Mount Evans Hospice in Evergreen, Colorado. Each year, a new Evergreen AngelTM is unveiled at the Angel Tea, where the hospice chaplain blesses her.
Evergreen Fine Art Gallery’s founder, Virginia Haley, created the first Evergreen AngelTM, “Sarah,” in 1993 as a way to both honor her grandmother and offer tangible support to Mount Evans Hospice’s indispensable mission. Since becoming custodians of that worthy tradition in 2008, Barb Hadley and Phil Shanley have never ceased to marvel at the Angels’ powerful, versatile and far-reaching appeal. “Our relationship with hospice is very important to us,” says Shanley, an early board member of Mount Evans. “The Evergreen AngelTM has always been meant to benefit hospice.”
Hadley and Shanley chose to retire and as of June 2018, Beth Riser, owner of the Evergreen Gallery, has become the newest curator of the angel program. The angels can now be found in the gallery, in Downtown Evergreen on the historic Main Street.
Not only are Evergreen AngelsTM beloved locally, they are often found giving joy and comfort to hearts across the country and beyond the seas. “They fly all over the world, and people give them for all different reasons – Christmas, births, christenings, graduations, retirements and bereavements. Sometimes when you don’t know what to do, an Angel can be very comforting,” says Barb Hadley. Time and again, Evergreen AngelsTM have served as emissaries of hope, comfort and heartfelt empathy.
