These anklets are serious business! Do you need to add some more jingle to a belly dance costume, a bit of whimsy to your LARP garb, or a personal locator device to your renaissance faire outfit? Do you just want to make a lot of noise? I’ve got you covered.
The important stuff:
Length: 13″/33cm total, from end to end
Weight: The silver and gold are both 141g/5oz, and the copper is 131g/4.6oz. They’ve got some heft!
Anklet body: Stainless steel
Clasps: Silver plated brass
Bells: Brass, plated brass, and copper
The bigger bells are 2cm/.75″ across, and 3cm/1.2″ from top to bottom.
Two clasps means these anklets are more adjustable than ones with single clasps: when you wear it, you wrap it as far around your ankle as is comfortable and clip it to itself twice. At 13″ long, they’ll fit most ankles as well as a lot of boots.
Stainless steel is great for people with metal allergies and for people who are rough on jewelry. It will not rust or tarnish or discolor, and will take a lot of abuse. (Not to mention–if anything bad happens, catch up with me at a show or send it back, and I’ll fix it.)
So let’s talk bells:
The big bells on these anklets are Rajasthani brass gypsy bells, and sound almost like sleighbells. The little guys are clapperless gypsy bells, and make a pretty little jingling sound. Together . . . Well, your friends won’t lose you in a store. These aren’t your average little craft store Christmas bells! The silver has the highest pitch, the copper’s a little lower than the silver, and the gold/brass have the deepest tones.
Wondering what happens if you wear one of these anklets for a long time?
The little copper bells are pure copper, and will eventually dull like a penny, while the silvery ones dull to a muted silver and the bright gold ones’ plating eventually wears down to silvery-brass. I haven’t seen anyone wear through the bright silver or bright copper plating of the larger bells yet, and the brass ones just get a little less shiny.
Need it a little bigger? Want to mix & match your bell colors? Need a matching necklace, or bracelet? Let me know.
