In the rounded petal, the working wire is brought across the basic wire at a right angle. For a pointed petal, slide down one or two beads more than with the rounded petal and bring the working wire across the basic wire at a 45 degree angle. These extra beads cause the top bead of the working wire to rest slightly above the top bead of the basic wire. This creates a pointed shape, and can be done at either the top or bottom of the petal. If you have difficulty with this, or you want a very pronounced point, slide an extra bead onto the basic wire before making your wrap.
