So I got some beads and started playing around, and this was the first I came up with. The little dangles are real pearls, and cost 75 cents apiece (which is probably steep, but what the hell). The gold beads are galvanized gold 6/0 seed beeds that I got to play with. While I was at the bead shop I also got two strands of pearls and assorted other stuff to play with. Now I am working on making the bracelets. I very much must have them.
