Anklet blog hop

Here is a pair of anklets I made recently,  motivated by my friend  Kashmira.

Kashmira gave a wonderful link where we could get some ideas about the size and the length of anklets, which I have lost now,  but I remembered  that it can be any where from 8 inches ( petite) to 10 inches ( large).  I double checked it too .

Anklet for a baby
This was made for a baby about nine months old,  as a special jewelry gift  for her auspicious Rice Ceremony. Rice Ceremony is when  the baby eats the first  solid food- ( or rice in our case ) in my culture.  That is  a day when a big party  is called for.

Here, this little girl, Tara has her initial T as a charm in this anklet,  and a tiny silver heart as a clasp.  Her birthstone is peridot, so I chose that gemstone and pearls  for good luck.  These little things dangle from a pair of chains.  One of the silver chains is just a normal rolo and the other sort of curved links.

The length is about 6 1/2 inch.  So when she is older I hope she can also wear it as bracelets.

Now Kashmira did enthuse  a  bunch of jewelry designers like me  in this project, so I am going to go browse all the other ankle goodies now.  Come along with me.
