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.

  • Apple shares reach 2014 highs, Asian stocks lag
    Shares in tech heavyweights Apple and Facebook held hefty after-hours gains on Thursday as their results handily outpaced Wall Street expectations, though Asian markets managed only a mumbled cheer on the news. South Korea's Samsung Electronics did gain 0.6 percent but the main KOSPI index dipped a fraction. Markets were mixed across the region with Japan's Nikkei off 0.6 percent but Singapore up 0.5 percent. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan edged ahead by 0.1 percent.
  • Apple expands buybacks by $30 billion, OKs 7-for-1 stock split
    Apple Inc has approved another $30 billion in share buybacks till the end of 2015 and authorized a rarely seen seven-for-one stock split, addressing calls to share more of its cash hoard while broadening the stock's appeal to individual investors. Activist investor Carl Icahn, who had famously called on the iPhone maker to boost its buyback program, tweeted his approval of the move on Wednesday. On Wednesday, Apple reported sales of 43.7 million iPhones in the quarter ended March, far outpacing the roughly 38 million that Wall Street had predicted. But whether Apple can again produce a revolutionary new product remains the central question in investors' and Silicon Valley executives' minds.
  • Buffett: moving oil by rail safely major industry concern
    Warren Buffett, chairman of conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said on Wednesday that safety is a major priority for the rail industry, after a recent spate of accidents raised concerns about how to transport oil safely. He added that the delay in the construction of the Keystone pipeline was unlikely to prompt additional purchases of tank cars at Berkshire railroad unit BNSF. Buffett also said, in an interview with CNBC the same day, that he thinks Coca-Cola's equity compensation plan was excessive, but that Berkshire Hathaway abstained in a shareholders vote. Earlier on Wednesday, Coca-Cola said 83 percent of shareholders approved the plan.
