Cheesy  Thanks!  I can't wait 'til my little soon-to-be sis gets married so we can do all sorts of new stuff!  She's already hired me as her crafter even though she's not even dating anyone. Cheesy

I love the idea of having the photos on the bouquet, even if it wasn't your own. I might do something like that for my dad... or make a shrine. This is totally fab! It's making me way more excited for my own wedding.

random question... i've seen these crystal bouquets before, and one tutorial described using a power drill to twist the wires... did you do that, or did you do it by hand?

either way, amazing!! totally copying you a few years from now. Smiley

DEFINITELY by drill!  By hand would hurt so bad.  My fingers were tore up enough just from the final tightening twists on each one (thank goodness for Cocoa Butter!!).

Here's a link to one tute I found http://www.geocities.com/chris_breecher/beadbouquets.html.  I've seen a couple, but they're all the same concept.

If you're only doing one or two, I could see using pliers to hold the wires, and twisting the pliers. Doing as many as sweets did, I'd opt for the drill.  Smiley

We had two drills and five battery packs rotating through recharging. Cheesy  It was quite funny each time our friends came over and asked, "What are you doing??"
