Retired - Building Sandcastles Anklet

PROJECT B686
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
The Building Sandcastles Anklet features a cute-as-can-be sterling silver sand pail and shovel charm and a lovely SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pure leaf pendant hanging from a delicate silver filled rolo chain. The design is an ode to childhood memories and fun-filled days spent at the beach.
Instructions
Before you begin, measure the part of your ankle that you would like your ankle bracelet to wrap around. Add just a bit of extra length for ease and find the closest length you can get on this chain between ball segments. Make sure that this length will be comfortable when you walk. The clasp will add about 3/8".
  1. Cut a length of silver filled oval rolo chain about 9" long, or the desired length.
  2. Open a 5mm silver filled jump ring and link it to the end chain link on one side of your cut chain. Close the jump ring.
  3. Your sterling silver sand pail and shovel charm comes with two jump rings attached - one holding the shovel and pail together and another one linked to the first one. Open and remove the second jump ring.
  4. Link your SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 14mm pure leaf pendant in crystal blue shade onto the loose jump ring (from the last step). Close the jump ring.
  5. Slide both of your jump rings (with pure leaf pendant and with shovel and pail) onto your length of chain.
  6. Open the jump ring that is attached to your curved lobster clasp and attach this to the last chain link. Close the jump ring.
  7. Enjoy!
