Day at the Beach Anklet Stack

About this design:

For this anklet stack, I used these colorful cowrie shells, seed beads, & crystals. I love the pastel color palette and the shells add a fun, beach-y vibe for the perfect summer accessory!

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Beading Wire
  • Lobster Claps
  • Crimp Tubes
  • Headpins
  • 24 Gauge Wire
  • Assorted Czech Glass, Gemstones, & Crystals (see below for materials used)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Choose your desired length of beading wire for your anklet or bracelet. Make a loop on one end and secure with a crimp tube. Slide the beads on in the order shown in the picture. Slide a crimp tube onto the wire, slide through the loop of the lobster clasp & back down through the crimp tube. Press the crimp tube down with pliers to secure. (For the cowrie shell, I wrapped wire on both ends & made a loop with round nose pliers to make them into bead links.) With the headpins, I made bead charms with the Czech crystal 3mm fire polish rounds & the silver 2mm rounds.
