I've a friend who collects angels. She's got them *everywhere*. Her home, her office, she wears them as jewelry. Her mantle was awfully empty and I decided to make her something she did not have. So I carved an emu egg and inset mica from an emerald deposit into it. It sat on that mantle until recently when she moved it to her desk in her office. I guess I'll have to make another angel to fill in the empty spot on her mantle.
