Angel Wing Necklace : Handmade Holidays


Like all of us makers, I made a lot of holiday gifts so I'll be sharing some that I wasn't able to share at the time. 

This one was for our favorite server at our regular Friday night go to restaurant. From the first time she came to our table we had an instant bond.  We are creatures of habit and the second time she came to our table she already knew our order! She's so good  to us, often treating us to dessert and just always such a sweet person. So I wanted to make her a little something and this Angel Wing charm seemed perfect. 


With the holidays being so busy I didn't take the time to take pictures of the step-by-step. One of my blogging resolutions for 2017! But the process and materials are simple: 

Supplies: 
  • Black chain ( Blue Moon Beads)
  • Silver Bead Caps ( Bead Landing)
  • Opaque White Crystal Beads ( Stash)
  • Black Crystal Spacer (Stash) 
  • Head Pins ( Stash)
  • Angel Wing Charm ( Shipwreck Beads)
  • Jump Rings (Stash)
  • Silver and Black Large Rings ( Bead Landing)
  • Toggle Clasp ( Stash) 
Measure lengths of black chain. I did 4 sections, 6 inches long, two strands each. Wrap white beads and bead caps on head pins and attach to each end of the double strands of chain.

Attach Angel Wing charm , spacer beads, and wrapped white bead to large jump ring as shown to make the pendant part. Attach chain and pendant to black and silver rings as shown. 

Of course what's a gift without a card so I made this one to go with it since her disposition is always Merry and Bright...not just at holiday time. 



Oops. I see my Merry & Bright was a little crooked. The card was super easy. Combination of papers from Recollections Black and Gold Christmas paper pack I fell in love with and a coordinating scrap from my stash!

Happy New Year all. Happy Making!

Ooh, I like the architecture of this, Carol! You are lucky to be loved by your favorite server and vice versa!
