"Pretty as a Victorian cameo and, when
necessary, tougher than two-penny
nails." That’s what they used to say about
Nellie Cashman, so-called "angel" of the
Wild West. She caught the pioneering bug
when Ulysses S. Grant told her to seek
adventure out west, and go west she did.
In a life that would include working as a
prospector, store owner, nurse and restaurateur,
Cashman would always find time to
help those in need. After moving to British
Columbia to cash in on a gold strike, she
heard that dozens of men were stranded
in Cassiar Mountains in a snowstorm,
Cashman immediately gathered a small crew to mount a rescue.
Attempting to save these men was considered so dangerous that even
the Canadian Army wouldn’t go.
These Angel of Tombstone Earrings capture the pioneering spirit
of this true American original. Inspired by the fabled White Buffalo
Turquoise found in the Nevada mountains, this necklace is a testament
to the strength and courage of those founding men and women
of the Wild West. With gold-finished spacers to symbolize the gold
rush that sparked so many to head into the unknown, these unique
pieces are truly meant for those determined individuals who won’t
take no for an answer. Don’t miss your chance to cash in on the
mother lode. Get the earrings inspired by a true angel.
