Most important thing about making this is finding a thread that you can use on a big eye needle. I used Superlon fine thread. I threaded 36 chips each strand which is enough for a small bracelet (I have a small wrist). The project only takes up one 90cm strand of the Amethyst chips which I retail for $4.50 on www.beadsonline.com.au with a lot of beads to spare.
The featured lotus flower charm is actually a bead so you can select which bead you want to frame.
