Sparkle and Shine Beaded Angel Ornament
"This piece can be used as a beautiful ornament for the tree or as a rear view mirror car bling. I designed it with beautiful red crystal beads of various sizes. Also clear crystal beads of various sizes. Accented with a bead angel. This project can be done in an evening approximately 3 hours from start to finish. My husband wanted something special to hang from his car rear view mirror and I came up with this design. His brother also wanted one in a different color."
