Choi's Anklet bracelets

Hello,

for this Problem:

http://24.media.tumblr.com/8b37d84c0...u9ao1_1280.png


ok for hand bracelets its ok to buy cheap plastic ones and color them golden (i did find good tuturials) BUT

I don't know how i should make anklet bracelets of the same size
..because i don't know how to make them that i can open them to put them on
...

does anybody have an idea? >_<

That...that is quite the problem. I don't think the designer of that character even considered how this poor girl got these things on in the first place considering they would never fit over her feet and appear to be slip on jewelry.

Clay is out the question because you need a clasp of sorts

I almost think your best bet would be a magnetic clasp of sorts that would allow for a solid appearance. Using this you could make the bracelet of nearly anything as long as you had magnets in the end that brought them together perfectly/uniformly. Also there are options in regards to already made magnetic bracelets you simply have to find one on the market that is the right shape/size/design.

A quick example is this http://www.pinkmascara.com/belle-noe..._ca mpaign=PM

or a list of possible things can be found by checking google shopping for "Magnetic bangle bracelet"

Try a twisty bangle bracelet? They appear to be round, but have a small opening and are bendy enough to twist in a sort of spiral to get on over hands or feet before shutting closed. I'm afraid I can't link you to any, but they do make them.

Never done this, but I saw it while looking to make an ankle bracelet for a cosplay. If you scroll down to the last picture in this tutorial, the artist shows how to make a bracelet that looks like a solid bangle, but has elastic on the inside. Not sure if this would work for how big that anklet it, but thought I would share just in case!
