        I just received mine. I found this lady on ebay who does custom foot jewelry. She was so good to work with. Each pair was $30, which is a little cheaper than what I was finding. Her name is Pamelia and her website is Beaded Foot Jewelry | designed & beaded by Pamelia. I'd post pics but I don't know how.

              Good luck! Corona should make it interesting!

                Okay so I only had 1 Corona in the last 2 hours & I've mangled 2 barefoot sandals already! LOL The first one I started was like the one from the other forum, but I really didn't like the shape it was taking (I think the wire was too thin & didn't hold shape very well) so I stopped right before I actually finished it. Then I started making a simple one with 2 strands going up to the ankle & having a shell flower attached before the anklet part & I was attaching the 2nd part of the clasp when I was talking to Mat on the phone (he called from work - nightshift_) & I DROPPED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every bead but 3 fell off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                AGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say I packed up the supplies & cracked my 2nd, well-deserved Corona!! I'll try these again tomorrow night because he's nightshft again, but I'll tell him not to call this time!

                  These are some that I made, I found it's easier to make them with wire and chain than stringing so many little beads:

                      20 gauge wire works best b/c its thick enough to hold its shape but still pretty easy to work with. And a Corona never hurts in the design process!
