How to Measure for a Beaded Anklet
How to measure for a BeadPerfect Beaded Anklet
SWCreations beaded anklets available in 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 inch sizes and every ¼ inch in between. If you would prefer your beaded anklet to be non-adjustable just request it when placing your order, and we can remove the extender from your anklet. If you want the anklet to BeadPerfect you will need to determine if you want to wear your anklet above or below your ankle bone. I prefer to wear mine loose and comfortable below the bone.
Tip: If you are wearing thongs or backless sandals you can wear your anklets below the bone. If you are wearing sandals that have straps below your bone, your beaded anklets will need to be above the bone.
Anklet Bracelets Above the Bone:
Measure with a string or tape measure above your ankle bone and add ¼". For example; if your ankle measures 9", you will need a 9¼ - 9¾" anklet. This will allow room to loosen or tighten the beaded anklet to fit just right.
*Note* If there is no graduation above your bone you may be better off wearing your anklets below the bone.
Ankle Bracelets Below the Bone:
Measure with a string or tape measure below your ankle bone and add ¼ to ½" depending on how loose you want your anklets to be. For example, if your ankle measures 10", you will need a 10¼ - 10¾" or a 10½ - 11" anklet.
Getting Your Anklet Right
Trying on anklets is very much like trying on shoes. When you receive your new sparkling trinket try it on and walk around the house. If you feel the anklet is too loose or feels too tight, try to tighten or loosen it a notch or two. If you are unable to do this, then figure out approximately how much less or extra you need and exchange your anklet for one in the correct size.
Small Ankle Bracelets
If you feel the ankle bracelet tightening or pinching while walking it may be too tight. If the anklet is too tight and drops onto your bone while walking, your ankle bone could cause enough stress to snap the anklet. If your anklet is fastened at the last notch you may want to exchange it for a slightly larger size.
If you are unable to find the same beaded anklets styles in the new size, be sure to contact me. It may be possible your favorite anklets can be custom ordered in your size.
If you wear your beaded anklets in the shower, pool, or ocean you may need to polish the silver more frequently. Foams and cream can be messy but will catch all the little crevices; polishing cloths are convenient to shine the jewelry up quickly.
