Easy Anklet DIY: A Braided Waterproof Anklet with Beads for Summer
DIY Style: Beaded Ankle Bracelet
This is one of the simplest projects in the book and it does make a great gift for a young girl. You might like to try using real silver for the chain and good beads for the best effect, and aim to keep the design relatively simple. Here a plain, real silver toggle clasp has been used, which is easy to open and close, with pretty lilac clear glass teardrop beads threaded onto real silver head pins attached to a length of silver chain. You can easily adjust the size of the chain to fit the individual ankle. You could also create a necklace and wrist bracelet, to make a set.
• Silver cable chain, 8 1⁄2in.
• (22cm) long or to fit ankle
• Solid silver toggle clasp
• 2 silver jump rings
• 12 pressed glass lilac teardrop beads
• 12 silver head pins
1.Using the wirecutters, cut the chain to fit your ankle. Join the toggle clasp to the ends of the chain with the jump rings. Be sure to close the jump rings firmly with the pliers.
2.Thread each teardrop bead onto each of the head pins.
3.Place the top end of one head pin through a chain link and bend over with the pliers. Cut off excess wire and carefully turn the remaining part over to form a secure loop on the chain. Take care not to squash the loop as the bead needs to move freely. Add the remaining beads in the same way, spacing them evenly.
