Coachella Anklet Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Bring the celebration of summer from your head down to your toes with this festive anklet! You can mix and match your favorite colors to create a unique piece that reflects your personal style, or try replicating ours that reflects the annual weekend of music and arts.

Step one:
Cut two pieces of clear elasticity cord that fits your ankle, adding three extra inches.

Step two:
String one 4mm bright daisy spacer onto each cord and then thread both strands through one 6mm Czech glass Persian turquoise two-hole flat square bead. Add one more daisy spacer to each strand.

Step three:
String the following pattern onto both strands:
  • three TOHO™ 11/0 bead round in opaque shiny black
  • five TOHO™ 8/0 bead round in opaque white
  • three TOHO™ 11/0 bead rounds in matte opaque spring sky blue
  • three TOHO™ 11/0 bead rounds in matte opaque sour apple
  • one TOHO™ 8/0 bead round in opaque frosted dandelion
  • one TOHO™ 8/0 bead round in matte opaque sunset orange
  • one TOHO™ 8/0 bead round in matte opaque cherry
Beginning with one matte opaque sunset orange bead, string the pattern backwards. You may find it easier to tape the open ends to prevent your beads from slipping off.

Step four:
Repeat Steps two and three 3 more times and then tie a surgeon's knot to finish each strand.
Approximate size: 9 ½ inches
Estimated time: 30 minutes
Difficulty level: Beginner
