making bling tack

Alright sooo since my back is proving to be a pain I have been doing less and having more time on my hands. So I've been thinking about trying to make some bling sets(breast collar,bridle, and tie down) just for fun. My favorite style right now which i probably wont have the money to do is the belt style like this:
Krazy Cowgirl
Bling Tack
However I still think it would be a good project to do a set with just a plain bridle and add crystals and conchos to it but I'm not sure how to go about this. Does anybody have any tips or anything on this sort of thing??
I know it won't be super cheap I'm just bored and have to much time and think it would be cool to make my own :]
maybe like these (one ear prefered)

I really like the first ones! They're really cute. I bought my tack from a lady who makes all her stuff and I LOVE it. I would just try it out if you have free time and see if you like it. Sorry I have no tips, besides if you get pretty good at it you can make a lot of money off that kinda stuff.

i do to but i Think those would be more expensive and tricky to make then buying a plain bridle and blinging it out. haha ya they do if I'm any good at it I might do it regularly and sell them at barrel races or gymkhana haha
