Inspired by a carefree, breezy day at the beach, I paired an assortment of pearls with silk chiffon ribbon, gold chain, & seed beads to create this layered anklet (or it can easily be worn as a bracelet as well!)

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Silk chiffon Ribbon
  • Assorted 11/0 Seed Beads
  • Beading Needles
  • Gold Ribbon Crimp Ends
  • Gold round wire cable chain
  • Gold rollo chain
  • Potato pearls
  • Petal pink biwa pearl coin
  • Petal pink rice pearls
  • Super glue
  • Gold Headpins
  • Gold Lobster Clasps
  • Gold Jump Rings
  • C-Lon White Size AA Thread

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Begin with your desired length of rollo chain. Slide the ribbon through the first chain link & tie a knot. Secure with a drop of glue. Weave the ribbon in & out of the chain links until you've reached the end. Tie another knot at the end, and secure with a drop of glue. Finish by attaching a jump ring & lobster clasp.

Step

Step 2

For the second anklet, I made bead charms with the pearls & attached them directly to the chain. Finish with a jump ring & lobster clasp.

Step

Step 3

For the last anklet (or bracelet), slide the ends of the ribbon into a crimp end with a bit of glue, and use pliers to clamp down. Attach a jump ring to one end, and a lobster clasp to the other end. Next, using the c-lon thread & a collapsible beading needle, sew on the rice pearls & seed beads. Place a small drop of glue at the ends of the thread to secure.
