My challenge entry for the Summer theme is an ankle bracelet. It is made with silver plated bar and loop chain, natural blue coral chips, silver plated 4MM spacer beads and small silver plated clapperless bells. It provides just a subtle tinkling and not a holiday like jingling when you walk. I love the color of the coral and how it can be worn with cutoffs and a teeshirt or with a pretty summer dress.

Here is a shot of it by itself so you can see construction (keep in mind I have larger ankles so it may be bigger than what you expect of an anklet Cheesy )

Comments and criticisms more than welcome! Happy summer!

Wow April!  I love this!   I love how delicate it is and how you've spaced the bells.  Just enough to tinkle lightly when you move, but not weigh down the piece.  The soft blue coral reminds me of the sky on a bright summer's day.  Beautifully done!

Oh this is beautiful!  I love the idea of an ankle bracelet (having never found one for me that fits!) and it's such great colors, too!  Awesome job.
