Florida Design of the Week: Ambassador Rachel Nielsen

When I think of Florida, I think of the ocean and walking barefoot along the coast. My kids insisted that I collect seashells for them when I was in Florida and I found plenty that already had little holes in them. That inspired my version of barefoot jewelry, complete with a seashell accent.

These are really easy to make - my girls did most of the work! All I had to do was tie the knot at the end.

You will need:
small beads - I used fuchsia and lime
stretch cord
seashell with a small hole {or you could use a larger bead}

String the small beads onto the elastic cord until you have enough to wrap around your ankle. Make sure the beads are centered on the cord. Insert the seashell onto both strands of cord. Then add beads to both tails of cord until it is long enough to go around your toe. Tie the cord securely with a square knot and I always like to add a dab of glue so the knot doesn't come undone. {I use beadalon stringing glue, but superglue or E6000 would work too.}
