Badass Woman of History - Nancy Bird Walton: Flying female Santa's to the Outback

Nancy Bird Walton, known as “The Angel of the Outback,” was born in 1915 and became the youngest Australian woman to gain a pilot’s license.  She was temporarily suspended from flying in 1935 when a state politician pronounced ladies were not “biologically suited” to the activity. Can you believe that?! Absolute baloney.

 

Of course she persevered, and--because she was a badass aviator with a big heart--she soon helped set up a flying ambulance service to provide medical support to people in remote areas of the outback. She also trained women pilots during WW2.

Why are we spotlighting her for our Christmas Collection? In 1935, she piloted female Santa’s into the north-western corner of New South Wales (while flying nurses to remote parts of Australia), spreading Christmas cheer to communities far and wide when Santa's of the other persuasion weren't available. How’s that for stepping up, finding solutions, and sending out some merry vibes?

Where does the wood come from?

Most of the wood that O. Sophronia uses comes from small urban mills in California and Washington.  We can tell you where the tree grew, often down to the street corner it grew on.  Most urban logs end up in the landfill, so using urban lumber ensures that we're not wasting this amazing resource.

We work with the saw mills (especially Urban Wood Rescue, which Bethany used to manage) to get pieces of wood that we can then mill down and turn into beautiful pieces of jewelry.
