Anklet


About this design:

Didn't name this anklet but thats ok, the gal who asked me to make it loves it all the same!♥

Her request for an anklet was simple, something she could wear all the time if she wanted, nothing bulky or too dainty & there had to be blue!

So I wanted to give her something with a little bit of both worlds with stringing beads & wire work. This was the result of it. Bringing both together to make an anklet that shimmers & catches your eye!

And I used lots of gems in this piece, didn't realize how many blue stones I had until I looked.

Components:

Angelite, Dumortierite, Lapis, Blue Goldstone, opalite, silver copper wire, copper wire,crystals

    Thanks so much ladies. I may have to make a few more similar to this I think. They might be more appealing since they are that little bit different for anklets.

    The gal I made this for absolutely loves it♥ Always nice to hear when someone loves your work!
