Q.
I'm wanting to make jewelry and headpieces for Barbie sized dolls and some smaller. Where do I look and what sizes do I need? Thank you,
- Brenda
A.
There are many small beads (2mm) now available to make miniature jewelry, including metal, gemstone, crystal, and seed beads. Nymo thread is very fine and works well for seed beads and other small beads. Finish the necklaces or headpieces using a continuous loop (see "Endless Necklace" illustrated instructions) attaching them to the doll before finishing the loop. The ring size memory wire would also be a nice choice for making removable chokers for the dolls.
