Instructions
Step 1
Align the four 7" wires with the twisted wires on the outside, straight wires on the inside and use the 1/2 round wire to make a bundle 1/2" from the top. Wrap 5 times to secure the wires.

Step 2
Measure 1 3/4" from the top wrap. Using the half round wire, make 3 wraps. Then measure 2 3/4" from the top bundle and make 3 more wraps, again using the 1/2 round wire.

Step 3
Holding the wire at the 1 3/4" wrap, very gently bend the 4 wires to make a horse-shoe. The wrap at 1 3/4" should be level with the wrap at 2 3/4".

Step 4
Thread your first bead on the twisted wire and secure with 2 wraps on the opposite side about 3/4" up from the 1 3/4" wrap

Step 5
Thread your second bead on the straight wire and secure, using 2 wraps, on the opposite side about 1/8" from the last.

Step 6
Thread your third bead on the other straight wire and secure, using 2 wraps, on the opposite side about 1/8" from the last wrap.

Step 7
Thread your 4th bead on the twisted wire and secure, using 2 wraps, just under the bundle of wires at the top.

Step 8
Flush cut the extra wire at the end of the bundle so that 1/4" of extra wire shows. You will use this to glue to the butterfly in the next step.

Step 9
Glue the angel's skirt to the front of your wings with E-6000 glue. Wait at least 1-1/2 hours for the glue to dry before going on to the next step.

Step 10
Now for the halo. Take the 3" piece of twisted wire and form around a round object. I found a round pencil was too small so I used an empty tube that holds seed beads. Use something about the same size as your cab or button. Now twist.

Step 11
Flatten the stem of the halo with your flat nose pliers or jeweler's hammer. It needs to be as flat as possible so the cab can glue evenly.

Step 12
Glue the cab you've chosen to the halo stem using the E-6000. Wait at least 1-1/2 hours for the glue to dry before going on to the next step.

Glue the halo-face combination to the wings using E-6000 glue. Wait at least 1-1/2 hours for the glue to dry before going on to the next step.
