Allen is a West Virginian artisan. As a youth, Allen learned the time-honored craft of traditional Quaker metalwork under the tutelage of a church elder.
He later became a skilled woodworker and created beautiful, museum-quality turned bowls and vessels from native Appalachian hardwoods. Nationally recognized as a craftsman, several of his pieces have been featured in galleries and have been purchased for museum collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
He is thrilled to have these ornaments as part of his collection.
Each ornament, zinc with sterling silver and gold plate, is cut from hand-hammered copper and is adorned with a Swarovski crystal, a vintage or contemporary cameo or a hand-tooled concho. All are finished with a hand-shaped brass wire hook.
These ornaments are durable and will provide lasting holiday wonder and enjoyment for all.
Each ornament is signed and dated to ensure authenticity.
Recapture the magic of the season and start a tradition which can be passed to succeeding generations.
