Flap those wings!

During an annual sale, I passed by the charms and beads aisle at my local crafts store and they were a really good deal.  So I bought some.  Initially I wanted to use them for bracelets but I hadn’t thought of an unique design for my arm candy so they were just sitting on my desk for the longest time.  Then somehow, an idea hit and I made this.

I am really happy with this piece!  I think it’s cute yet it also has an edge (rocker chic!) at the same time.  I had to modify the angel wings a bit because the first pair I made were too big to be worn around the neck.  It looked comical, really.  Huge wings flapping around, like a bird, lol.  I minimized it and so it now sits nicely down the front.
