Wings into Horns

Closing Wings into Horns: there are many ways to do it. Have you looked at yesterday’s Friday Update, August 24th, on the Specials for Pre-Orders page?  (If you pre-ordered and need a password, please email to let us know. Some of our email to you was eaten by spamcatchers.)

In addition to traditional corner decreases to close Wings, you can fill them in with different beads or stitches, or employ tailoring techniques to reduce. This is a strap closure across the wing-tips, which is not only interesting visually, but dropped the bangle size a full inch when done on four horns. Beadwork and photo by Kate McKinnon.
