Shopping List:

15 g 15/0 Seed Bead - you may need more or less depending on your strap length

4 grams 15/0 Seed Bead - colour B  
3 grams 11/0 Seed Bead - colour B (round profile)
Swarovski Crystals:
2 - 8mm rondelles. These are the toggle ends. I prefer the Swarovski 5040 Briolette rondelles because the holes are not sharp and have a slight indentation that sets the 15/0 turnaround bead in a bit. It keeps it from getting snagged on things.
5 - 6mm bicones - colour B
220 - 4mm bicones - colour B
