*Bead caps or bead cones in various sizes, depending on how small or large you want your angel to be. I found a package of bead caps in the "Bead Landing" section at Michael's.
*Angel or Fairy wing beads (I purchased mine from Hackberry Creek on Ebay. Here is the link: http://www.hackberrycreek.net
*A few 6mm, 8mm and 10mm Crystal Clear Czech beads AB (For the head and to stabilize the skirt.)
*5mm Crystal Rondelle Spacer
*Tiny charms (I found some heart ones at Michael's)
*2 inch silver plated EYE pins (NOT head pins!) about 22 gauge
UPDATE: Hi everyone! I've had a few questions asking about the sizes I used for the cone-shaped bead caps, so I measured the ones I showed in the video. I found the bead caps at Michael's in the "Bead Landing" section. The package was hanging up with the rest of the findings and I believe the package was a light tan or beige color. Please keep in mind that the measurements are not EXACT, however, it will give you an "idea" of what you would need to make similar angels. When deciding on your bead caps, pay special attention to the HEIGHT of the cap. I don't feel the width is that important.
Caps I Used In The Video Tutorial:
Tall Cap: 16mm High X 11mm Wide (at the bottom)
Short & Wide Cap: 15mm High x 11mm Wide (at the bottom)
Blue Acrylic Trumpet Flower: 12mm High X 18mm Wide (At the very bottom)
Red Acrylic Bell Flower: 10mm High X 14mm Wide (At the bottom)
