DIY: Burberry Inspired Ankle Bracelet

image via style.com
I saw this pair of espadrille the other day and fell in adoration with the concept from Burberry. As I design jewelry, I decided to make something that is slightly more versatile than this stylish wedge. Wouldn't it be cute in the summer with a pair of snazzy shorts with fitted tee. Sigh.....
 I used turquoise color stones and Swarovski pearls. These are readily available in any craft stores.
Instead of 5 strands, I made 3 strands, thinking I can double up or keep it simple depending on the outfit. String beads and attach to a jump ring to finish. Open jump ring and attach to a gold color chain. Length will depending on your own ankle circumference and how you like the fit.
Single 3 strand is more simple.
Doubled up with two 3-strand ankle bracelet. It is more substantial and dramatic but slightly heavier as well.
I added to my brown espadrilles.
Double bracelets is really more dramatic. Which look do you like more, the single 3 strand or the double look?
When not accessorizing wedges and heels, these work perfectly as an arm candy by itself or doubled.


  1. Brilliant ideas and you adapt it well with your 3-string ankle candies!!!

    happy new year, btw.
