I am new here and new to beading. I am mainly interested in making barefoot sandals. I have tried to google how to make them and whilst I came up with a couple of sites - I didn't feel the information was very clear.
I have looked at your related posts but they seem to be out of date.
I have had a go at making a couple of designs........but would like to know what is the best size beads to use and what type of beads.
Any advice/help/suggestions would be most welcome. :)
Welcome to the forum.
I would suggest you re-post your question in the section called "How Do I" . I can not help you, but I think more people will see your question.
Thanks Shanks - will do!
The size of bead depends on the design element your want to accent. I like to make them for "Fun wear" with 8mm elastic and pony beads or plastic beads. I have had custom orders for Crystals and Clasp and a design like an ankle Bracelet with the 'Slave Strap around the second toe...
about.com has a barefoot sandal that can be custom designed in a 100 different styles.
hope this helps.
ps. I made my first one, using the measurements against a beach flip flop.

Thank you for the information. I will certainly have a look at that website.
