ANGEL HEART HISTORY
In 1986 Alex Streeter was quietly working in his store on Prince Street in Soho when several art directors wandered in his door. They looked around And were in touch with him soon after... “Dear Mr Streeter, we find your jewelry work to be the strangest in New York City...Would you be interested in designing jewelry for a film we are working on? Alex was directed to carve a Hair pin, a Fortune Teller’s Necklace, a Doctor’s Ring and a Blues Man’s Tooth, all including a pentagram that the Art Directors Were afraid to even draw.
He busily got to work and carved all of the requested pieces, excepting the Blue’s Man’s tooth. Like the Art Director’s reluctance to illustrate Nature’s Star, the bejeweled tooth he felt was going a little too far.
The very first Angel Heart Ring was carved of African Amber beads with a silver Pentagram inlaid inside the Amber. Highly enthusiastic by this life changing opportunity Alex gave his best and biggest work. After shipping the collection to the New Orleans film site, it turned out his ambitions were a little too large. In a panic the ring was returned and requested to be scaled down to one half its original size. It was reworked, shipped, and the rest is film history. Angel Heart Was released in 1987 to rave reviews and has been appreciated ever since as a cult favorite.
The Angel Heart Ring has shared a similar fate in its lasting appreciation. In its twenty plus years of worldwide wear, it continues to evolve Into more colors and styles as collectors seek more magic.
