Here’s the final design of the earrings and bracelets. I had to play around with it a few times but settled with this as it gets costly buying beads.
I made a different look for my maid of honor with our colors, Royal Blue and Black.
I created the inserts for the boxes that will hold the earrings and bracelet. I can write a tutorial if anyone really wants to know how but i’m not really good at writing tutorials.

I can direct you to where I found a great tutorial from one of the Bees. Again not really good at tutorials but she explains it well. You can also go on websites such as http://www.artbeads.com where they have video tutorials.
To start, I did a lot of research on buying tools (got a set at Michael’s with coupon) and looked around online for the best deals on beads, headpins, components that you’ll need. Ebay was good to start with but usually has large quantities which are good for headpins. I also bought a cheap 3.99 bracelet from Michael’s for the beads to practice on to make a set of earrings beforehand. For a first timer, I had a lot of trial and errors and really doesn’t end up being cheaper but I like that’s it personalize.
