I had so much fun making my jewlery for my girls and I. I purchased my items at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, and a wholesale bead outlet in Houston.  Please PM me with any questions!!  A piece of advice, buy the bead glue! It is essential for when you tie it off at the end :) Happy beading!

    Thanks Lola - question though...what is the purpose of the beading glue?  Sorry if that's a dumb question.  I may go back and put it on my completed ones if it's worthwhile.

    you MUST add a dab of it once you tie it off to secure it. :)

          Hi,

          Not sure if you bought those 3mm yet or not but they will most likely bee too big and uncomfortable around the toe. Not meaning to worry you if you bought these already. Not trying to be a know it all either,  but I've been beading for over 20 years... The best beads to go around the toe so that they are somewhat comfortable to walk on are seed beads. Seed beads are the little tiny ones and they come in various sizes from a teeny tiny size 1 to a large size of 24. The best and average size for a project like this I would say is an 11 or 12. Seed beads aren't sized by mm, but an 11 or 12 is probably the equivalent of 1mm...

          hi, thanks so much for the advice! I did order some bigger size 8 beads for around and on top of the foot but also ordered some 12's for around the toes. I think it'll be perfect! :)

              This seems a lot more cost effective than buying the ones I've seen online.  They are beautiful.  I think I am going to try it.  And then I can make the right size for my flower girls too.
