        Thanks ladies!!! I also have dark purple seed beads to work with. I'm keeping all the pairs within the 4 colors I have (crystal or pearl, pink, purple and the brown) and just slightly switching up the beading patterns! I think I'll do a dark purple with ivory pearls tonight

          That sounds super cute!!  But pink and pearls sound even better! (Pink is my fav color) hehe  :o) Now I'm gonna have to go search for me some of these. :o) I don't think I'm as crafty as you to actually make my own.

            Haha I'm really NOT a crafty person! All I've learned I've learned from this forum (shout out thanks to BDW!) but they are super easy to make! I got all supplies from micheals (40% off) you just need stretchy beading cord some seed beads then your decorative beads. Start with about 2ft of cord and hold both ends in your fingers ( like a big u shape) Bead the seed beads over one end of the string (about 50 beads) then have both strings go through the bead, this makes your toe loop at the bottom. Then use your decorative beads to go up the foot alternating between single stringing and double stringing the beads to make your pattern then separate the two ends and single string the beads on both sides to go around your ankle. Hope that make sense!!

                Great job! Michaels had a good deal last week with the beads, I scooped up a few more in different colors. I've made a few as well for my bridal party which is really small and I'll be making some more for my mom, MIL, siblings and nieces. It becomes a little addicting I find. I'm far from crafty but the instructions I found on here by another bride (Sunset Love, thank you!). Keep up the good work. I'll try to post a few of mine when I get a chance.
