How to make an Angel with Beads





I thought the beads I used for the wings were called dagger beads. But upon closer look, dagger beads are straight but the beads I used are slightly curved. I'm not sure what they're called. Heart shape or leaf shape beads would work as long as the hole of the bead is on the flat side of the bead. You can also replace the skirt with cone shape beads. Try different combination of beads for fun results.

Materials:
1 6mm roundell crystal bead
2 6mm round pearl beads
3 4mm bicone crystal beads
2 8mm leaf/heart shape beads (for the wings)
1 4mm diamond crystal
6 3x6mm rice shape pearl beads, size 11 seed beads

1 head pin
2 15 cm fishing lines
