I'm not sure what this beaded little thingy would be called....but my sister brought it from Dubai for me. I wore it all week at the Outer Banks......and you guessed it!!! Of course I was thinking, "I could make this!!!" So I did......for Ms. Joy's birthday on Monday.
All you need is clear stretchy cord, crimp beads and an assortment of beads. But make sure you use the thinner stretchy cord and that the crimp bead is big enough to fit it over the cord when it is doubled.....
You need to cut a piece of cord about 11" long...string about 2" worth of seed beads on first to create the loop to put around your toe. Next choose some flat beads to sit on the top of your foot. Feed both ends of the stretchy cord through all of these beads. Leave about an inch of the cord and then work with the longer end spacing out the beads in a pattern. When you are finished slide both ends of the stretchy cord through a crimp bead right above the last flat bead and crimp it in place.
It's kind of hard to put the directions into words......I'm thinking it doesn't make much sense when you're reading it....but play with it and it will be easy to figure out :) Then you'll have some cute foot jewelry too!! But get busy quick....I can't believe how fast summer is passing!!
