This is kind of what I was thinking too... although I really love the idea. Maybe you could include something about making a bead (very easy with clay or even paper) if they don't have beads hanging around? IDK. OR! You could ask them to each bring a small bag of store-bought/found/homemade beads (number based on the guest count) and each guest could go home with a necklace? Don't know if this takes the focus away from your DD too much.

I think what you wrote is fine and preferable to "no gifts".

Though I love the bead idea, in theory, I do not love the reality and I would hate having to purchase such a specific gift for someone.

oh man! a bead would be so easy to buy where I am....there are awesome places in central locations where one could purchase a single bead at a very cheap price and it would be a very cool, artsy kind of bead, too.

 

Maybe a list included, of all the fun places you could get a bead in your area?? I LOVE the idea of everyone leaving with a necklace!!!
