Azrael’s Trumpets

“When the soul sees Azrael, it ‘falls in love’, and its gaze is thus withdrawn from the body as if by a seduction.”– Peter Lamborn Wilson

This is one of my favourite Coil Songs– I’ve received much comfort from it.  It, as well as the painting by Evelyn de Morgan, inspired the Azreal’s Trumpet earrings.

Wrestling with Angels

 Horse Rotorvator is my favourite Coil album.  Sometimes it is the only thing that can dispel the existential chill. The text is from Peter Lamborn Wilson’s Angels. It’s fair to say this song inspired my newest piece, a pin made of salvaged rhinestones and a highly detailed brass wing.

The angelic half-nelson– I think we’ve all been there. This trophy brooch is one of a kind.  (Though some have said that angels’ wings can grow back there is yet no forensic evidence of such phenomena.)
