Jewellery designs for your feet

I've been looking at trends in jewellery design recently and have turned my attention to jewellery for the feet! I particularly like the trend for bejewelling shoes and boots.

Barefoot sandals
Barefoot sandals tend to be made from cord and beads and decorate the ankle and go around at least one toe. They have become popular for beach weddings

These from swap top shoes can be worn with bare feet or with shoes

This boho design is available from GP Yoga

Anklets or ankle bracelets are great to draw attention to lovely shoes and complement them

Anklets work by Ashley Olsen, Zoe Saldana, Shailene Woodley and Rihanna (courtesy of She Finds)

Shoe jewellery
You can dress up plain shoes and boots with chains and beads

This chain that goes around the ankle and covers the shoe is good for any season

These plain ballet flats have been upcycled with some clip on earrings (via trendhunter)

Toe rings
Toe rings tend not to be sized, they have a gap that allows you to adjust the sizing. They are often made of metal or wire wrapped beads

This collection is found on ebay and shows the gap in the ring

Jewellery inspiration - unusual stone settings

I am pretty addicted to pinterest and love that we have so much access to inspiration as jewellers there. I have recently been drawn to unusual stone settings and I find it useful to consider how the jeweller has done it as it gives me a jumping off point for ideas. Here are a few innovative designs that I love.

I have decided to announce the theme for the coming month a week before the start of the month. This is to give people time to think about their designs, particularly those that are busy and have a lot to fit in.

The theme for February 2019 is .... music and lyrics

Here are some of the best I've seen for metal clay artists. Do share any I've missed in the comments and I'll add them in

Clay, materials and tools

I haven't seen any other discounts on metal clay but there are a lot of discounts on gemstones and beads out there including Beads Direct and Kernowcraft. Elsilver also have discounts, it's worth checking out their 25% off offer on dies.

There's also the new Fancy bezels, prongs and bails course by Julia Rai which is great. Use c…
