Angelwings Studio, 1007A Chetco Ave., is planning a grand opening – with food, fun and gifts – starting at 11 a.m. today (Feb. 24).

Each of the first 10 people through the door will receive a hand-blown Egyptian vial, just a small sample of what the large business in a little space is all about.

Angelwings Studio will carry a mixed myriad of retail items, from Peruvian jewelry, incense and mosaic mirrors.

But there's more; the studio is designed for "modern day crafters," according to its owner, Dora Cichantek.

And there's another twist 5 percent of the money made will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

Cichantek saw a need for a place where people of all ages could come and have fun while "bringing out their talents."

She will offer ceramic painting, acrylic painting and china painting; she has a kiln to fire artwork done in the studio or in the home.

Classes in china painting, clay building, stained glass, oil painting, candle making and more will be offered, as will craft projects for children.

"Just drop your child off and enjoy a day of shopping, or just relax on the beach while your child enjoys and experiences art," the owner says. In addition, people can bring in their "masterpieces" to the studio to be sold on consignment.

Angelwings also has birthday packages with everything provided, including refreshments and ceramics to paint.

There will be weekly and other workshops; people are welcome to suggest workshop topics.

Because of her personal contact with cancer, Cichantek is dedicating the open house to Laura Read, Community Service Manager for the American Cancer Society in Crescent City.

In addition to a friend just diagnosed with breast cancer, Cichantek's step-grandson has a cancerous tumor in his head.

In addition to the kindness of her business neighbor, Shane Alcorn, Cichantek sings the praises of Laura Read, "who has done so much for my loved ones."

Angelwings Studio will be open Wednesdays from 1 to 5 p.m. and Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Fore information, phone (541) 412 3672 or (866) 934-3672.

  • Fed's Yellen calls for caution on rates; Draghi says ECB ready to act
    The Federal Reserve should move cautiously in deciding when to raise interest rates given the U.S. In a speech at the Fed's annual central bank conference, Yellen laid out in detail why she feels the unemployment rate alone is inadequate to evaluate the strength of the jobs market and why the central bank needs to step gingerly. Her remarks were followed by a speech by the head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, who said the ECB was ready to use all the tools at its disposal to lift euro zone inflation if it continued to drop.

    Under the settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the conservator for the two government-controlled mortgage finance companies, Goldman Sachs said it agreed to pay $3.15 billion to repurchase mortgage-backed securities from Fannie and Freddie. The FHFA, which valued the settlement at $1.2 billion, said the accord "effectively makes Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac whole on their investments in the securities at issue."
  • Argentina slams U.S. judge as 'imperialist,' peso halts rout
    Argentina on Friday accused the U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa blocked payments to holders of issued under U.S. Griesa ruled that measures proposed by Argentina's president late on Tuesday to make debt payments locally and push bondholders to bring their debt under Argentine law violated past court rulings. President Cristina Fernandez's measures, if enacted and executed, would potentially allow Argentina to skirt Griesa's court orders and thus resume interest payments on an estimated $29 billion in restructured bonds.
