    Yay I found my lead!! But them my stupid laptop wouldnt let me attach any pics last night, so I have brought my camera into work! Cant you see i'm having a very productive day!! :)

    These are a few I have made so far.... only another 92 to make!! I have actually enjoyed making these and found it kind of therapeutic!! Even if they were fiddly.... small beads & fat fingers!!!!

    They will all be the same, no order in the beads, just blues/white & silver and they will all have butterflies on, just different styles!

    Might even bring them into work to do to relieve the bordom!!!

    Vikki xxx :D

    Thanks.... Ian is very impressed with them and offered to help as well... now I say I have fat fingers his are like jumbo sausages (and the same size hands as mind... small but fat lol) so he had no chance really lolol!!

    I did think of alphabet beads but then I thought that would be more hard work and I wouldn't be able to do them until we have the guest list confirmed. I think I might get some for me & Ian so we can have Mr & Mrs on ours instead of butterflies!! As long as people don't go home with them your more than welcome to have them after lol!! (im not going to tell any one to take them etc but I bet a few will)
    I got loads of cheap beads on ebay and the wine rings weren't that expensive on ebay for 100. Im not sure all in all how much they have cost me to make (which I should and will find out so then I know exactly how much everything cost... naughty me) however if ian asks I say oh only about £10 lol

    xxxx :)

    Well done hun, these are really lovely. I love the fact the beads are different colours, shapes and sizes and that the butterflies all look different too. They are really lovely. If I was a guest at your wedding I would def take mine home and probably try and snaffle away some spares!!! :) xxx

    Ooo they are lovely!! I am doing the alphabet beads ones. I have just made for everyone so far & will just not use the ones for people that can't come! :lol: Must admit I would do the same as Pink & take mine home as they are so lovely I would have to use it everytime I have a glass of wine, which isn't often... :) honest...:D :) :) xxx

    I've just finished making my charms tonight. You need to buy:

    wine charm rings
    4mm links - these attach the charm to the main ring so that it dangles
    beads of your choice, i ued a mixture of purple glass beads and metal star and flower spacer beads.

    Look up 'findings' on ebay to locate the charm rings and the links.

    Get yourself to poundland for a pair of round nose pliers (small ones) for attaching the charms and off you go :eek:

    Another thing to look for on ebay is 'tibetan silver' silver without the high price tag, many UK sellers sell them on but it's really cheap to buy direct and they arrive very quickly. I used tibetan silver heart charms and got 50 for 99p.

    There are different types of charm rings - ones that close fully with a clasp and ones that don't properly close - the former need beads with a min of 2mm inside hole or the beads will not go over the clasp. The ones that don't properly close are easier to use as you can use smaller beads and then simply use your pliers to bend up a section of the ring through the loop the other end to make the clasp anyway.

    I'll try and post pics and a 'how to do' tomorrow :lol:
