  • Two 14" lengths of .015” diameter bright Beadalon 19 Strand wire
  • One silver torpedo clasp
  • Two 1.3mm silver Beadalon Crimp Beads
  • E beads, 5 of each color: blue, red, orange, yellow, pink, green
  • Beadalon Wire Nipper Tool
  • Beadalon Crimp Tool



  1. Hold both Beadalon 19 Strand wires together and place a crimp bead 1/2" from the end. String the wires through half of the clasp and back into the crimp bead to form a loop. Use the Crimp Tool to secure the crimp bead.
  2. Place each strand through the opposite side of a blue E bead. Pull the strands gently until the bead is vertical and the strand ends are even. Repeat the technique using a red bead. Adjust the wire between the first two beads to about 1/8"-1/4". String beads in the following color order: blue, red, orange, yellow, pink, green until the desired length is reached.
  3. Hold the wire ends together and string a crimp bead 1/2" from the end. String the ends through half of the clasp and place them back into the crimp bead to form a loop. Use the Crimp Tool to again secure and finish the anklet.



  • Use the same technique to make a matching necklace and bracelet.
