Snow Angel

About this design:

This 2.5" little angel sparkles and shines as decoration or a small pendant.


You will need (1) 12mm faceted round bead, (2) crystal leaf drops for wings, 20 gauge wire, (14-16) 6mm rondelles or 4-5mm rounds. Round nose pliers are great for finishing the loop.

Step 1:
Supplies needed...
  Step 2:
Measure out around 5" of wire and go down through the large bead then through the others and back up through the head. It is good to do an extra wire wrap around the wings and under head to tighten the beads up. When finished create a loop at the top for hanging.

    The wings are called Crystal Leaf Drops on the Lima Beads website, there are a few color variations.

    I made this last night, but just put the wire through the head and wings. I made a beaded tassel for the body using seed beads.
