The sweetest Lieutenant in the US Army contacted me, wanting me to replicate these wings for his wife whom he clearly adores. I really had fun making this piece for him. I was flattered he chose me to make it and of course once I heard the story on the meaning of the piece, I was honored to be a part of it. "The story behind it is… We've been together almost 6 years, all of which she's had to deal with my being in the military. I'm in helicopter pilot training for the Army, which has been a 2 year process so far. There have been many times that she's had to be there for me and help me out as I've been going through it all. As a tradition, when we graduate and get our Aviation wings pinned on our uniforms, our spouse gets a necklace with wings on it too, to signify their help through the whole ordeal. She's always been a little more eclectic, so I thought a special one-of-a-kind piece from you would add a little bit more to show my appreciation for her always being there for me. I liked your style and saw that you did custom pieces, which is why I decided to see what you could do to help me out!" The inscription reads "My copilot in life". Such a romantic story isn't it? How many women would be over the moon if their husband designed such a special piece of jewelry for them?
