Wow, so pretty. The ones you can buy in the store are around $7.00!
The instructions seem fairly simple. I have a question though:
Do you string all of the beads on the wire first (before bending into the letter shape) or do you string as you go?

thanks

I strung them all, left about 1/2" of unstrung wire, formed my loop (to keep the beads from coming off) and then formed my letter.  After it was all done, I cut off any excess wire and did another loop.

I made an M the other day, but didn't take a picture of it before I gave it to our pastor.  Sad

i think i saw the original martha stewart project, and she made smaller ones to go through the ribbon as a kind of "gift tag" for holiday gifts. I think yours are gorgeous, but if anyone needs another though, they also look great as gift tag thingeys. If you use small enough seed beads, you might even be able to use it as a necklace charm...

I made those one year and used them to go on top of the gifts. Like L for Lee, P for Polly. They really do turn out nice.
