    This is one of the ideas that I'm thinking about making too.

    I have beaded in the past but never anything like this. Did you use a specific pattern to begin these? I would love to make something like this for myself. Also, how do you measure the correct length of wire?

    Is Tiger Tail OK to use?

      I was the same way. I ended up ordering them from a bride on the forum that is now a vendor and her prices are really reasonable. She was great. Her username is AgapeGems, her name is Courtney.

        Courtney is so nice!!!! Plus, there are sellers on Ebay and Etsy, but I find that Etsy is somewhat expensive.

        These are so simple to make though. Here's a hint though: don't use fishing line. LoL. I used it for my first couple of trails and found that it didn't stretch or it was too loose.

          Has anyone seen where I can buy the footless sandals that Shanny May posted a picture of?
          Thanks!

                Here are the ones I made myself. I spent a ton of money on beads at a bead store (Sassy Bead co.) but ended up using all the ones I got at the dollar store. I looked through their necklaces and crafting section and found a ton for under $10. Then I used a clasp from the neckalce to fasten them in the back.

                  You can find stretchy fishing line at a craft store or the dollar store. Just be aware they come in different widths and the thicker it is the more tricky to get through some beads.
