Crochet anklet

This is my latest crochet piece. It's an anklet (please don't faint!).
When I was a teenager I used to wear anklets but only in summer. While on the beach there were sellers selling braided anklets and I thought how fun would it be if I crocheted one. Eva loves them - that's for sure!


I love how it looks with the spiky crowns. I added wooden beads although it would have been more spectacular with shiny ones. More photos here.
But that's not everything. It's more versatile than it appears. Stay tuned.

There was a time when I wore ankle bracelets, too. But now I don't even want to show my feet to the world. :/ You are always coming up with some simple but elegant and useful. Have a great weekend. Tammy
