Let the angels be with you. This cute and unique blue angel can be yours in only a few easy steps. All you need are some beads, a pin and some angel wings. This project comes from Angie Beauchamp of the Charm Factory. Making your own angel charms is fun and easy to do for yourself or a great gift. You can use round beads of your choice in a variety of colors. This angel utilizes a sterling silver angel wings bead and blue cat’s eye beads for color.
- 1-1/2” long head pin (Use a 2” long pin if easier to maneuver)
- 4mm round bead
- 6mm round bead
- 4mm Bali style flat flower bead
- Angel wings bead from the Charm Factory
- Round nose pliers
- Flat or needle nose pliers
Slide the 6mm round bead onto the head pin to make the body.
Slide the angel wings bead on next.
Then put the 4mm round bead on to make the head.
Next the 4mm Bali style flat flower bead goes on to make the halo.
Take the round nose pliers and grab the head pin right above the halo. Wrap the pin around the pliers to make a circle.
Hold the circle you just made with flat or needle nose pliers. With your hand, wrap the pin around the circle three times. This will keep the beads tight together.
Cut off the excess pin length with the needle nose pliers.
Add a jump ring or spring ring to attach your charm to a bracelet, other jewelry, etc.
