Anklets!



Right around the time that Kashmira announced her first ever blog hop, I was creating a very special custom order for an anklet. I have been waiting for the reveal day and am very excited to show you what I've made!

An old friend of mine (like since second grade old), Mindy, requested I create an anklet for her wedding day!! I started with a delicate heart-shaped chain and some upcycled puff heart charms in sterling silver. I incorporated light gold toned Czech glass to matched the beading on her dress and blue Swarovski crystal bicones for "something blue".


I also created an anklet for one of her bridesmaids and another old friend, Ashley. I used the same heart chain and pretty purple agate beads.


Both looked lovely and so sparkly on the ladies. Mindy had a great wedding day and I wish her and her husband all the best in the world!


The following photos were taken by Heather Hudson and are property of Heather Hudson Photography. Heather is a very talented photographer in South Eastern Connecticut. Visit her website to see more of her awesome work! Unfortunately, the anklets aren't very visible in this photo, but I still had to share :)
