    I came across this site tonight and thought some of you might be interested. There are step-by-step instructions to make a simple barefoot sandal that looks fancy. I just glanced over the instructions and they seem pretty easy, just a time consuming project b/c the beads used are very small.

      Those are just beautiful. I made this kind for all the girls who traveled with us to Curacao. Just to show that there are all kinds of options. Let me know what you think. Thanx

            Very nice!! Did you make them with stretch cord or beading wire? I have toyed around with the stretch cord but i'm not convinced it's strong enough.

              These are the ones I made for my first try when I accidentally let go & dropped every bead before I had a chance to tie them off!! Grrrrrrr....
              They took quite a bit of time because of the small beads. I won't be trying them again!
              I can't wait to have the time to try out round 3 with my newest beads!

                I made these with 0.7mm stretch cord. You do have to be gentle with it as it will stretch out. But mine have lasted aver many uses and are still in the same condition as when new. I just used 2 crimp beads to secure them.

                Here is a pic of the whole group at the wedding in Curacao.

                  that is great that you made them for EVERYONE!!!

                  Wowzers! and i was struggling with the idea of only making 3 pairs!!! Lol

                  Great job.

                  This is great I think I'll pick up some supplies and try this out versus buying them.

                      Ok here's a question... My FMIL mentioned the possiblity that the sand will be hot and/or rocky... Has anyone run across this problem with wearing them
