Everyone has a light and dark side...
I was cleaning my room and saw a bookmark that I made last year. The design was a pair of wings, one representing "goodness" and the other "evil." They folded in half on top of the page to be marked and magnets on the back kept the wings closed (the idea came from a great friend of mine ^^). Seeing them again, I felt inspired to make a miniature copy for that friend who presented me with the idea. You see, I'm graduating this year while she'll be a senior next year, so I'm still coming up with parts of my farewell and thanks-for-being-such-an-amazing-friend gift for her.

    Begin by grabbing your thicker black wire and using your angel wing as a guide to for shaping the top and bottom loops.

    Bend the wire back like so to shape the first finger (literally what they're called for bat wings, according to my brief google search...). Notice where it is bent relative to the angel wing behind it.

    Cut the wire short after you curve the wire back up so that it goes along the right edge of the wing.

    Wrap around the last finger and cut the wire before using pliers to clamp the cut edge as close to the rest of the wings as possible.

    Using the same method, add another layer of webbing.

    To transform this into a pendant, simply slip a jump ring through a loop and add a necklace chain.
    There you have it -- a pair of wings to adorn your neck (or to present to the friend who inspired the bookmark idea in the first place; I hope she likes it!)
