This barefoot sandal is the perfect accessory for your favorite sun dress or your next trip to the beach. Its bold blue colors are the ideal counterpart to sandy beaches and crashing waves.
Please note that the measurements for this piece are approximate. You'll have to adjust the length of the piece to match both the length of your own foot and the width of your ankle.
Step One: Cut approximately three feet of 0.7mm elonga multi-strand stretch cord. Use a big eye beading needle to string an approximately 2-inch section of Toho bead rounds in marbled hematite ab in the center of the three foot length of cord. Make sure that your section of seed bead is long enough to fit around your toe.
Step Two: On one side of the seed bead section string two 5mm Swarovski round pearls in Tahitian-look, a 6mm Swarovski bicone in montana, an 8mm Swarovski faceted round in montana, a bicone, three pearls, a bicone, 8mm round, a bicone, three pearls, a bicone, 8mm round, bicone, two pearls and a seed bead. Repeat on the other side.
Step Three: String one side of the cord through the 16mm Swarovski rivoli in montana. Double knot one end of the cord, being careful not to pull too tight and break the cord. String the other side of the cord through the rivoli and double knot again.
Step Four: On one of the cords, string a seed bead and two pearls. String a bicone, 8mm round, bicone and three pearls. Repeat once. Add a bicone, 8mm round, bicone, two pearls, a bicone and an 8mm round. This is the center back. Reverse the pattern to work toward the rivoli. Tie a knot, thread through the rivoli and tie another knot. Use a small amount of your favorite glue on all the knots to keep them in place.
Step Five: Repeat steps one through four to create a second sandal.
