DIY Anklets Tutorial

in untalented •  last year

To continue with our DIY project here in Steemit we will do another craft this time it will be an anklet.

Thanks folks for all the support that I received yesterday. I am so touched on your messages and rest assured that I will continue on providing you some step by step guide on creating some DIY accessories :)

Here's the finished product :)

Since anklets are not that popular compared to bracelets and necklace I decided to create one. And here's the step by step guide on creating it.

First is the materials. We will be using my favorite the jewelry copper wire. 24879035_2008664262739878_1816745103_o.jpg

Then we will be using wire cutters 24879448_2008664249406546_2134134825_o.jpg

Fish hook locks, but it really depends on you if you will be using a different lock on this one.

Then the bead stones, I do not recall the name of the stones so please do pardon me on that. Once I restock my beads in the future and go to the store I will definitely write down all of their names for reference. 24740088_2008664179406553_319388351_o.jpg

Then the replica of Jade beads :)

The metal beads

And lastly the stoppers 24946161_2008670526072585_1860342326_o.jpg

First step is to measure the length of the anklet that you will create. On my case I did measure it on my ankle and check my desired length. After getting your desired length with the use of wire cutter you will need to cut it.

After that, you will need to insert the fish hook lock.

To secure the lock you will need to use the stoppers, the good thing about stoppers is, it does not only serve as a lock for the beads but also an extender to create a space for your material.

You can refer on this post on what I did with the stoppers and how it create a space for the beads. https://steemit.com/untalented/@tpkidkai/christmas-gift-idea-diy-necklace-for-your-girlfriend

This is how it should like when you use the stopper, you will need a long nose pliers to press it. 24879194_2008664156073222_957926156_o.jpg

After securing the lock, then it is time to insert the beads (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

After the brown beads, I inserted the stoppers and then used the jade copycat afterwards.

You just need to continue on it until you reach the desired result.

It will take you some time to finish it especially the part wherein you will need to create the space using the stoppers but this should be the somehow end product of it.

After reaching the desired length you just need to insert the ring, the ring on the fish hook lock will serve as the main lock on the item.

And you are all set! Now you have your own anklet. Actually when I am doing this and saw the final result I felt that this will look good as a necklace too especially if I will have a turquoise pendant like this.

That's really cute.
I just thought it's a girly hobby. I'm not being sexist here :3

Yes I thought so! This one is really cute and that is why I regret on not having a pendant for this. Tsk!
This hobby of mine started when I planned to give something to my co workers before. That time uso yung para cord na bracelet. So ayun I did some bracelets as a Christmas gift to them since I am on a low budget :p

Inunahan nila ako on giving ballpens so I chose that bracelet because it has multiple usages.

Wow. Ang thoughtful mo naman.
Konti na lang ang mga ganyang tao ngayon no.
Sige lang, humayo ka at magpakarami xPxP

Para pag may kailangan akong ipa tapos na workload sa kanila marirealize na I did something good to them.

Thanks but no thanks. I don't really do girly things or anything related sa gawaing-kamay. Pasmado kasi ako :P
I'd rather you give me recommendations on good anime to watch especially historical and mystery ones.
