Teardrop Angels

About this design:

Create sweet little angels to hang on your tree, use as a pendant, or hang on your rearview mirror. These are just ideas to spark your imagination.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 2 Czech glass teardrops with ab finish, 2 faceted or crackle Czech glass beads, 2 head pins, 2 angel wings, wire, and 2 spacer bead for a halo if you don't want to do the wire halo. Recommended tools: round nose pliers

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide your beads onto the head pin.
Step 2:
For the wire haloed angel Take the wire tail and start wrapping it around the largest part of your pliers to create a halo. You could also use a pen if you don't have pliers.
Step 3:
Trim the wire from the halo.
  Step 4:
Now cut a piece of wire, leave a tail at the top. Wrap the wire around the base of the halo several times. Take the wire at the top and create a small loop, wrap the excess around the base of the loop and halo wire to finish. Trim any excess wire.
  Step 5:
For the angel made with cord: Slide the beads on the cord, especially the silver halo bead. Create a knot at the bottom. Create a loop at the top with the cord and knot.
