I'm trying something new, a little different, with finishing the wings.
This is a pair of wings in a dark midnight, denim blue color.
At the ends of the wingtips I added a blue-black faceted glass bead to finish it off.
it has a picasso finish on the bead, so part of it has a pearlized bue look that matches well with the dark blue textured color on the wings.
You can see the glint of light on the bead at this angle.
Usually I do the wirewrap plain, without adding the bead.
With a simple loop at the bottom to add a bead or dangle.
I got these vintage glass faceted beads and they match the color of the wings perfectly.
So I tried them together and loved them that way.
Here's a picture of the reverse side, it's an india ink denim blue color with a butterfly wing-looking pattern on it.
I wish I could say that I looked at the beads first and then painted the wings to match, but I didn't, this time it was a happy coincidence that they matched so well.
But if you like the look with the beads on the wingtips, maybe next time I will do it intentionally.
I like them, they feel very ornamental - just a hint of BLING at the ends of the wings for a special sparkle.
