    Oh yeah I def could have spent that, I'm just cheap.  Haha.  I used a coupon and got just a couple of strands of the nicer beads, and mostly used an inexpensive strand of tiny, inexpensive ones.  The gold oval things I bought online for like $3 for both.

      They sell the beads that are already on a string, I guess I could have bought those and just cut the beads off...those were only .99 cents.

            I would have loved to go crazy on nice beads but I kept reminding myself I'd only be wearing them for 30 minutes.  Good luck!

              Do you know what size beads you bought for the smallest ones?? I am going to attempt this project (wish me luck, lol!) and going to order my beads from etsy. Not sure if I should order 2mm, 3mm, or 4mm.

               

              Thanks!!

                I bought a bunch of already-beaded strands - it might have even been a necklace - then cut them and used the beads.  I think I ended up using 2mm string, so I think the smallest beads must be 3mm?  Maybe 4?  Sorry I'm not sure!  Good luck.  :)
