Hi ladies,


I am having my ceremony on the beach and was very lost as to what to do with shoes... not so much for me, but more for my bridesmaids. They have a knee length dress and obviously heels look better, but on the beach they would need sandals. I didn't want them to have to buy two pairs of shoes, so I decided to go with barefoot sandals for all of us. I decided to make them myself and thought I'd share. They are really easy to make, but time-consuming (about 1 hour for one pair). All you need is beads of your choice (from any bead store - many in Toronto!) and Stretchy Jewelry Cord (best is 0.5mm thickness) which would also be found at the bead store. If anyone wants instructions, I can come up with them I'm sure.



Please don't pay attention to my poorly done toenails, lol.... the clear ones are for my bridesmaids (that way they can wear them again and again with any colour bathing suit) and the purple ones are mine (which no one will see anyway under my dress, lol).

ugh those pics are terrible.  I will hopefully get some better pics of these up close at the wedding.  Or figure out how to use my own camera properly!! lol


Thanks to Chelsea who was my original inspiration!  They did take a long time to make myself, but the BM's I made using the same pattern, so the 2nd and 3rd pairs took a lot less time!  And shopping around for the beads I wanted was super fun!!


For those of you in the GTA, I found a good selection at a little bead shop at warden and eglinton. Tucked in beside the Dollarama!  I also got some of my supplies from dollarama, the stretchy cord and the seed beads (tiny ones).

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
