My mother in law belongs to a Mary Kay group called Debbie's Angels, she has this beaded angel pin that uses wire instead of safety pins. She wanted to know if I could make more for her group but I don't know where to start lol. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated!  Grin

"Beaded" angels could look a lot of different ways... you might want to check out these sites for lessons and examples of some kinds of bead people though, then add wings (beads or not) and halo if you want an "angel":

http://www.beadstudio.com/info.php?a=141 (this is basic technique for making the figures "bottom to top," but they can also be made starting at the top--head)
http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=522 (also top to bottom)
