Bottle Angel

Ok, I've made bottle bugs, dragonflies and here's the latest. It is kind of Christmasy, but a lot of people collect angels year round.

She would be lovely anywhere, indoors or out. The bottle you used is so perfect for her!

Wow, once again I'm blown away by you ladies and your creativity and skills. That angel is more unique and pretty than any I've seen for sale!!
How did you bend the copper wire and string the beads?
Amazing angel.

You never cease to amaze me.
I love it when we find a "nitch" and develop it.
Just precious.

Thanks guys. Novice, copper wire is pretty easy to manipulate just using needlenose pliers. I get my wire from the local electrical supply's scrap heap, very reasonable. I used a 20 guage craft wire to wrap and add the bead details. It turned out so cute that I made 3 more this past weekend (some colored ones). I think they will sell at the craft show that I'm doing Dec. 5th.
