Today is our reveal for Kashmira's Anklet Blog Hop! While I have had my little anklets made for quite a while (so unlike me, I usually like that last-minute "rush"!)... of course, I did leave it to this past week to lasso my lovely models for some outdoor "action shots". I am thankful we finally had a couple of warm days so we all felt summer is around the corner.
Unfortunately, this has been accompanied by an unusually strong wave of POLLEN. It is rare for me to even notice the pollen season coming and going, but this year I feel like my head and chest are stuffed with cotton batting, and sleep is about the only activity I feel really excited about. I may be a little slower getting around to all the blogs for that reason.
I thought I would go with a very traditional design this time, which I made in two colourways. I wanted something pretty and delicate, but totally wearable for a 17-year-old lady.
Believe me, my big clumsy hands had a hard time dealing with these tiny chains: 3.7 mm parallel curb chain (not so bad) and 2.6 mm Figaro (real pain). Must add a chain-holder to my tools if I want to work with these again.
Details of little Swarovski beads:
Now some pics of the twin nieces wearing their anklets (thank you for sharing your lovely ankles, girls!!)

and 4 mm aquamarine and sunflower Swarovski bicones.
A little polymer clay charm added to this one.
