Introducing the 2022 Evergreen Angel Jewelry Pendant – Rosalie
The 2022 Evergreen Angel was designed by Beth and Chloe Riser, a mother and daughter creative team. Colorado silversmith, Chapin Dimond, sculpted the angel from their drawing into the finished pendant. The uplifting design elements are reminiscent of the Art Nouveau style of the 1920’s.
This angel’s name was inspired by Rosalie Peak, a 13,575-foot mountain next to Mount Evans, one of the stunning vistas within Evergreen. Rose was also a popular name from the 1920’s era.
The Rosalie angel is holding up rosettes in front of her wings. Roses are symbols of love, gratitude, appreciation, giving, caring and so much more. These elegant flowers anecdotally show up in stories about miracles and encounters with angels.
The gemstone version has a star ruby cabochon. Rubies hold many meanings, including being the July birthstone. They also signify strength and protection, since the ruby is the second hardest gemstone in the world, following the diamond.
We hope you find your own special meaning within this handmade angel above and beyond our design.

A collaboration of Colorado artists designs each angel with drawings. Next, our newest silversmith artist, Chapin Dimond of Lafayette, Colorado, sculpts the angel and he individually casts each of the pendants in the final form. The Evergreen Angels are made entirely in the USA. Since 1993, a portion of the proceeds from each sale has benefitted Mount Evans Home Health Care and Hospice in Evergreen, Colorado. Each year, we unveil a new Evergreen Angel at the Angel Tea, and the hospice chaplain blesses her.
The story behind the Evergreen Angels
Evergreen Fine Art Gallery’s founder, Virginia Haley, created the first Evergreen Angel, “Sarah,” in 1993. It was a way to honor her grandmother and also offer tangible support to Mount Evans Hospice’s indispensable mission. Since becoming custodians of that worthy tradition in 2008, Barb Hadley and Phil Shanley have never ceased to marvel at the Angels’ powerful, versatile and far-reaching appeal. “Our relationship with hospice is very important to us,” says Shanley, an early board member of Mount Evans. “The Evergreen Angel has always been meant to benefit hospice.”
Hadley and Shanley chose to retire in 2018. Consequently, Beth Riser, owner of the Evergreen Gallery, became the newest curator of the angel program in June 2018. Beth is excited to carry on this wonderful tradition for the community. As a result of Beth’s undertaking, The Evergreen Gallery carries the angels exclusively. As a convenience, this gallery is open nearly every day, and located in Downtown Evergreen, making the Evergreen Angels easily available to view.
Not only are Evergreen Angels beloved locally, but they are also often found giving joy and comfort to hearts around the world. “They fly all over, and people give them for all different reasons – Christmas, births, christenings, graduations, retirements, and bereavements. Sometimes when you don’t know what to do, an Angel can be very comforting,” says Barb Hadley. Time and again, Evergreen Angels have served as emissaries of hope, comfort, and heartfelt empathy.
