I first became aware of boot jewelry when I was coming home from visiting my son in San Jose. At the San Jose airport I kept passing by a young lady in the security line who was wearing boots and a bracelet/anklet on one of them. At one point when we were stopped, I asked her about it. It was beautiful, made with stones and a bit of bling. She told me she had purchased it at a shop, and that it is a boot bracelet made for wearing over boots.
I was intrigued and when I got home started a search on Etsy and the world wide web for boot bracelets. There are lots of different ones. My favorite are those made with a double strand of beads and a charm dangle. I now have made a number of these.
The picture at the right is one I made for a gift. The charm is a cute silver boot. Then I used some silver beads, pearls and green twist beads to complement the larger stone round disc beads.
The side sports a large flower clasp and ring. I added an extender chain after I took the photo. Since I already gave the gift, I don't have a pic with the extender chain.
This is another gift I made. You can see the extender chain on this one. Again I have incorporated a boot charm, pearls and silver. Turquoise is the stone. It looks so southwest!
The boot bracelet to the right is one I made for my daughter. I think it has a bit more of a delicate feel to it. She is a petite lady, so I chose turquoise blue elongated beads, pearls, small round turquoise blue coin beads, elongated decorative antiqued silver beads, and a leaf charm. Very feminine!
I am selling these in my Plum Beadacious shop. Although I have a limited stock right now, I always enjoy custom orders. I am also making more, so check back often for different ones.
