your bouquets are the most beautiful crystal bouquets i have seen! did you use a tutorial? if so may i ask which one? Also.. I love the fiber optics idea. My father works at a company that makes fiber optics.. I wonder if I could get him to bring me home some scraps to experiment with.. hmmm.

Thank you!  I mostly used this tutorial (careful, it's hosted on geocities, so sometimes when a ton of people visit at once it becomes temporarily unavailable, but it'll come back!  I've been looking at it randomly for years since I first saw it and wanted to make some. Smiley ).  It took a lot longer than she (or one of the people who wrote tips) estimated on her site, but maybe they had more people working than I did.  There were just two of us working on mine!

I ran out of steam towards the end, and I think my bouquet is about 100 crystals smaller than I'd originally hoped, but I guess that just means more beads for me to play with!  Smiley

Edit to add:  oh, and I highly recommend the fiber optics!  There's a lot of wow factor for not very much work; all of our guests were really into the centerpieces.  People were touching them and playing with them all evening.  Smiley
