DIY Swarovski anklets and toe rings

Take a sip of water, clear throat, mic on….


Why do we always feel uncomfortable about what our feet look like ?! Feet are feet, they’re there so we can stand on them and wear cool shoes – who cares if your toes are slightly wonky ?! It’s cute ! Which is why I think we should celebrate and decorate our feet with Swarovski crystals !

Colourful crystals look gorgeous on your feet in the Summer and these DIY anklets and toe rings are perfect for stacking or wearing individually. I originally made these accessories as finger rings and bracelets but thought that because the technique is simple I would add an extra suggestion to the tutorial by making them into jewellery for your tootsies too.

To make a DIY Swarovski cristal toe ring, you will need :

– One to three bicone crystals

– Wire (I used 0.6mm to make sure it passed through my crystals)

– Fine chain

– Two jump rings that are fine enough to go through your chain (I suggest you take your chain to a shop and ask !)

– A pair of flat, round and cutting pliers.

To make an anklet, you will need :

– The above supplies

– A few extra crystals if you wish – my favourite numbers for bracelets and anklets are 5, 7 and 11.

– Two extra jump rings

– A clasp

Here is how to make a Swarovski crystal toe ring :

Step 1 : Cut a piece of wire and make a loop at one end. Add on the crystals and make a loop on the other end, cutting off any excess wire. You should end up with something like this :


Step 2 : Push a jump ring through one side of the metal bar and through one end of the chain.

Step 3 : Simulate putting the toe ring around your toe, measuring the chain at the “fattest” part to make sure you can put it on and take it off.

Step 4 : Cut the chain in the right place and push the other jump ring through the other side of the bar and chain. Your toe ring should look something like this :


Now here is how to make an anklet :

Step 1 : Same as step 1 of the toe ring tutorial but with as many crystals as you like :


Step 2 : Push a jump ring through one side of the crystal bar and through the end link of your chain.

Step 3 : Simulate putting the anklet on and cut the chain in the right place. Put the anklet together with another jump ring.

Step 4 : Find the middle of the chain and cut it. Add a jump ring on one side and a jump ring and clasp on the other side. Your anklet should be completed and looking like this :swarov_anklet
