Renata's Arts and Crafts
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!!!!
