I can't get it to come up. I would sure like to see a
picture of it. I hit printer friendly and it took me
to webshots, but there was still no picture.

Here are the directions from the web site to make this cutie:
•20 Gauge Jewelry Wire - Gold or Silver
• 9 x 6mm Beads - Red & Purple or Pink & Lavender
• 1 - 12mm Jump Ring - Gold or Silver for Halo
• 1 - 12mm Pearl Bead - for Angels Head
• 1 - 3/4" Pin Back - Gold or Silver
• Large Star Shaped Beads used for Hat
• Heart Shaped Beads used for top of Hat
• Feathers to Adorn Hat
• Tiny Jewels or Flowers for Adornment
• Hot Glue Gun & Sticks
Cut 12 - 18 inches of wire for small Angel
Bend/crimp the end of the wire, using small pliers to form tiny loop to prevent beads from falling off. Slide on small bead first next to the crimped end of the wire. Then slide on Heart Shaped Bead & then Star Shaped Bead. Hot glue Jump Ring to Pearl Bead & then slide bead on wire.
Crimp wire to start making Angel's wings. Slide on 9 to 13 beads to form wing. (# depends on style of bead)
Shape into a wing/rain drop shape and twist one time.
For Angel's dress/skirt slide 11 to 15 beads on the wire, shape into a large triangle and twist once.
For opposite wing, slide on same amount of beads as first wing & shape into wing/rain drop shape, and twist once.
Pull the wire to the back of the Angel, and wrap around another wire. Cut excess wire & then bend/crimp it to form a tiny loop to secure.
To hide twisted wires in front of Angel, you can hot glue a flat jewel or tiny flower, etc. on to decorate.
Hot glue pin back between wings.
