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.
Then we will be using wire cutters
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.
Then the replica of Jade beads :)
The metal beads
And lastly the stoppers
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.
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.
Just have a little creativity and patience and for sure you can make a beautiful piece too.
