I have offered to do the wedding jewellery for a friend getting married in summer. She's shown me a lovely simple idea for bracelets for the bridesmaids, but I'm a little stuck on it's creation. Could one of you lovely beading gods and godesses help me out?

I've come up with a few options,  I could use 4 headpins, one for each crystal, but I don't know how to attach the red center bead or the chain. I think I'd rather not have wire through the crystals and then  behind and twisted, in case it were to rub on the wrist. I'm also clueless as to how to get the horizontal crystals sitting nicely centered, and not too high or low to the central bead.

Any thoughts?

Thank you! Uluru

Try a beaded Daisy Chain maybe here is a tute http://beadwork.about.com/library/weekly/aadaisychain.htm
You might need to use round facited crystals instead of the bicones for this to lay the way you want it.
Another option is finding something like this filigree flower http://www.artbeads.com/bba-lx51.html?icid=recsch and wire wrap the beads onto it. You can attach the chain to this using oval jump rings.
Check out artbeads.com they have lovely filigree swarovski Crystal flowers that would look nice and are reasonably priced. Just make sure you have a ruler near by to get an idea on the size because I ordered something from there thinking that I knew in my head the rough dimensions and when I got it it was ginormous! ha ha ha I still dont know what to do with it! also dont forget to enter the coupon code! it can save you some money:)
I hope that helps
I love making jewelry especially for weddings have fun with it! and take pics when its done!
Good luck
