offers hand crafted products that make perfect gifts for so many people on your Christmas list this year, including those people who are so hard to shop for because they already seem to have everything. The company has been creating collectibles for nearly 90 years and their products are American made.
Their products are crafted by hand using a multi-step process. Skilled artisans hand carve each design and then handhammer each piece into aluminum and other metals. Each piece also bears the mark or signature of the artist.
Wendell August is well known for their heirloom-quality ornaments and I had the pleasure of reviewing their 2010 Annual Ornament, “”. The ornament contains amazing detail and is truly stunning. It comes packaged in a gift box and is encased in a plastic sleeve to help protect the ornament. The ornament can be hung using a traditional metal hanger (included) or with a satin ribbon to help create a more elegant look. There is also a small card explaining the history and methods behind the Wendell August pieces. The price of this high quality ornament is only $10, a steal in my book.
In addition to their ornaments, Wendell August Forge also offers a wide variety of gift items to include accent dishes, bag tags, cookie tins, crosses and more. There is an option to personalize the gifts as well.
Gift Giving Guide: This is a great gift for someone who seems to have it all already. A dated ornament can also be a great hostess gift, teacher gift, or socking stuffer.
