Hi. This is the THIRD attempt to try and post this.  Undecided Twice I tried but encountered a glitch. Not sure if it is this system or the website. Doesn't matter.

Background: My mom passed away unexpectedly a couple months ago. A group she belongs to, the Ladybugs, was kind enough to do the food for her memorial and help my stepdad cope in the weeks following her death. This last weekend I was at JoAnn's looking for some stuff for a swap, and came across some ladybug beads and angel beads. I had the idea to make chunky purse charms for the Ladybug group as a small thank you for their support.

This is a sketch of what I am thinking about.

My problem is this. While researching inspiration and technique, I became overwhelmed. I have the technical skills and understanding to complete this project. I have experience with wire and beads and such. No problem. But I have not found any design formula or ratios or numbers or whatnot when looking online. All of the videos and tutorials show merely the technical aspects of making these charms. They don't touch upon any sort of design help. *sigh*

So I am coming to my experts for consultation. Please help my swiss cheese, befuddled brain make sense of all the beautiful inspiration I am seeing online.

Any advise, direction or help you can give me is greatly appreciated.
