Study Break: DIY

When the glamourai first blogged about her new idea for anklets I was immediately hooked.

I was tempted to buy a pair from her wonderful etsy store, but decided to try and figure it out for myself. I think they turned out very cute! (And they were incredibly easy to make.)

*lots of different chains (I bought mine from Joanns, but you could definitely use vintage)
*wire cutters
*closures (also from Joanns)

This project took about 10 minutes, probably less. I measured out chain, cut two pieces to that length (for each foot) and made them slightly varying lengths so they'd fall nicely. Then I used a jump ring to catch all the chains along with my clasp, and closed it tightly with the pliers. Voila!

I lost my photographer midway through this photoshoot and had to get a little creative. But I wanted to show how versatile these are. I tried them with two different boots (black and brown) and my favorite black heels (from Ann Taylor. I am not kidding.)
