You've seen the cute collection of anklets for women on Etsy? Anklets should be right up there with necklaces and rings in your jewelry collection. Every woman should have at least one pair.
Anklets usually scream days at the beach, right? Well, call me crazy because I'm hanging on to the last days of summer! And these diy anklets are such simple and chic pieces of jewelry I say wear them into fall with your super trendy ankle boots. At my BlogShop class last weekend everyone was wearing cute boots!
I love anklets. You'll find anklets all over my wishlists. I used to say I would order great anklets from anywhere in the world I could. Then I found out that every man, woman and child can easily make their own designs. I'm done with signing my life away to ecommerce stores; I'm making my own! So if you love anklets, stop shopping for them, pay attention for 2 seconds and get crafting. You can make a durable anklet with adorable silver charms or string or any other crazy design you can imagine for a fraction of the price as the ones you can buy online. You'll discover a knack for jewelry-making you never knew you had!
Easy bead DIY anklet
- Long chain
- Bead of choice
- 2 small jump rings
- Lobster clasp
- Head pin
Clip two small pieces of chain, each 1-2 inches long. Put the head pin through the bead then cut the excess of the head pin. Slide on the small pieces of chain and then use pliers to bend the end into a loop. Measure your ankle and cut a longer piece of chain. In the center of the chain attach the top loop of the bead with a jump ring. Add another jump ring to one end of the chain and a lobster clasp to the other end as your final touch. Then stand back and admire the results of your finished project.
