      Thanks!
      I'm not good at giving directions, but if you click this link you can get a free video tutorial that will show you step by step how to make basic wire loops which is the technique I used for the ones in the first picture. All you need is the wire and 2 sets of pliers- one round nose and one cutter, and the beads of your choice. You can get this stuff at any craft store. I personally like Hobby Lobby b/c they are always cheaper than Michael's. The ones I made for my BMs were made with mother of pearl shells and I just used base metal instead of sterling silver or sterling plated b/c its waaaaay cheaper.

      Let me know if you have questions! And post a pic of what you make!!

              So any luck with trying out the barefoot sandals again? Or did you just finish off the Coronas and call it a night?

                I'm so glad I saw this thread. I totally love this idea. Not getting married any time soon. But, I think I will try this this week-end. I can wear them to the pool!!

                  Yeah, I polished off the 6-pack of Corona before I even had a chance to try again! LOL But I'm hitting up Michaels this weekend (our store is FINALLY opening on Sunday!! YAY!!) to get some wire so I can try again soon!
                  I'm so glad I don't have a wedding coming up or I'd be losing my mind! I'm just trying to make them now since I have so much spare time on my hands! I'll keep you guys posted on the success (or lack of!) of my next attempt!

                    Well here I go with my weird input once again but have you thought about wearing these instead of sandals since it is on the sand? I think it would look gorgeous, and they are inexpensive also...

                      I bought mine on ebay but could never find any i liked for my bms and finally i saw agape's. I just talked to agape (formerly twelve piece) yesterday and am placing an order for two for my bms. She's really easy to deal with. I can't wait to see what she comes up with for mine. for anyone not interested in doing them theirselves i think you should definately pm agape for some info.
