Foot Bling Blog Hop Results!!!

First, a great big juicy thank you again to everyone who participated!!! Here's the list of artists, don't forget to visit their blogs to see all the beautiful creations!

and now, for my little project.

I've often been teased about my penchant for jewelry that makes lovely, jingly noises when I walk. Even before I started making my own jewelry, I used to love those little bell anklets. One of the great things about making your own jewelry is that you can take that idea and run with it (har har)



I started this piece with a variation on helm chain, using really really big (12mm) jump rings. I thought the chain looked rather empty, so I added some 9mm jump rings in between and I LOVED the result. I'm definitely using this little variation again. Here's a closeup:


This anklet sits really low on the ankle, and the coins sort of spread around the upper part of the foot. It's SO MUCH fun to wear!! And it makes those wonderful jingly sounds when I walk too!!!!

  1. I love the anklet, it reminds me of the old movies with the Shieks and his herams (excues the spelling if wrong) with all of the jingly bracelets and anklets. Thank you for having this blog hop it was alot of fun and fun to see what everyone created.

  2. This is a gorgeous piece and I do believe is actually taking an ancient idea about the foot jewellery ... I actually can imagine in old times a spanish girl dancing and this little jewellery just jingly
