I think I might have located one. 

The Picture is not good (so I am not sure) but I just emailed the person to ask for some more pics.....it kinda looks like it might be, but I will wait to see if they send some more pics.   So finger crossed.

Did you got yours fixed by now (and not interested anymore)??  If so, then I may buy it for myself.....but will wait to see if they send me some more pics and hear from you first.  Have to find out IF it is - or not

I am ....  :X:

Hello Rose......I have literally just got home from the Cambridge Glass Fair, and yours is the first message for me!
My poor Angel still has a broken wing  :cry: and I have spoken to Adam who has said he will look at it to see if it can be repaired,  but if it is a Shirley Elford Angel that you have seen and you could bear to let me buy it, then I would be so grateful to you. 
However I will completely understand if you want to have it....may I let you decide when you have more information?  I know if you do decide to keep her,  she will be in a loving home and I also know you would keep a lookout for another one.  :kissy:

No Rosie - I found it and it is for you first and foremost....

ONLY if you got yours fixed, or did not want another -- would I then buy it.  So no, you have the first chance at it as it is your S.O.S here.   It was not advertised at all.  I "only" spotted in some pics of their glass there.  It was tucked away at the very back of one photo, and then in a different photo it was in the middle of the shelf.  I am  believing it is the correct Angel.   I say that with about 92 % confidence right now.   Bit of a different color than yours, but pretty sure it is correct.   :X:

I have contacted them and waiting for a reply.  I just asked about the Glass angel (not IF signed yet).  I asked for more photos of it.  I am hoping when they reply (and send photos ) that mostly THEN they will *mention* if it is signed, or IF they know the maker of it.

So just waiting for a reply from them -- but this IS your S.O.S post here -- so you deserve it first and foremost!!    It needs to be with its Glass friend there, plus with another angel made by Shirley

When you posted this SOS - I think you felt your Wing was broken - over your glass Angel

Sometimes *ALL* of us are Glass Angels and have Broken wings  :ghug: 

I made the pledge (to myself)  I would find you one....as A Canadian, and *In Memory* of Shirley Elford for what she stood for as a Glass Artist, and struggled with Ovarian Cancer !!!  I was going to find you one.  Lets hope the pics are not old pics and the Angel has been sold.  I will shoot them another Email tonight again, about it...okay

:fwr: Rose
