    Now take the bead tray and set up a pattern of arranging beads on it. Make sure you give it the proper length and use a clasp to give it a unified look. You should take care of the length of the anklet as sometimes it can become too long at this stage.

    Next, use the wire cording at one end of the clasp that is holding the beads in their place. Now you should string all the beads in reverse and adjust the length if necessary.

    Attach cording to the other end of clasp as you need to use a wire cutter and pliers to keep the jewellery secure. Then use crimp beads to reinforce and also secure the cord by putting a knot in place.

    Make sure that both ends of the cording are secured properly, otherwise the beaded anklet will not give a perfect look. The goal is to keep the sequence of beads in order to ensure the anklet looks symmetrical.
