J. David Jewelry owners give back to healthcare workers with ‘Angel Wings’
By Brandon Lunsford
On March 22, J. David Jewelry did what other businesses across the state were told to do. Both showrooms closed, which meant their 3D printers used for making stunning custom design pieces would not be creating jewelry.
Owners Joel and Kendra Wiland made the decision that their 3D printing capability would be put to good use, benefiting the community and frontline heroes. They began creating what are now known as “Angel Wings.”
“Our Angel Wings have been shipped all across the country,” stated Joel Wiland, “to those on the front lines, first responders, and to those in need, and the demand continues to grow.”
One of the biggest complaints people have of face masks is how they rest on people’s ears. The Angel Wings take the masks off of their ears, making them much more comfortable for constant, everyday wear.
“We are trying to make healthcare workers around the country a little more comfortable,” stated Kendra Wiland. “For every Angel Wing we have sold to the public, J. David Jewelry gifts another to Joy in the Cause, to distribute them to frontline healthcare workers and first responders.”
Joy in the Cause is a local-to-Oklahoma non-profit whose mission is to provide care, compassion, and joy, one personal act of kindness at a time.
“Our partnership with Lisa Bain and Joy in the Cause is special to me,” Joel Wiland added. “Lisa and her team truly are the warriors in all of this. Their volunteers have hand-sewn over 6000 face masks and given them to healthcare workers and first responders. Angel Wings was a natural partnership that has affected so many.”
