My daughter and I are making these as Christmas gifts to give to her friends and cousins. We have made a few changes with things we had in our craft stuff, like, instead of the metal chain bead we are using plastic beads that you can buy by the yard real cheap, and we are using embroidery floss to wrap the beads on to leather lacing that I had. I still made a few with some silver nuts that my husband had in the garage, but the others we used larger beads and bracelet clasp on the ones we did not use leather with. They turned out really nicely!!
