Bell Bracelet

Build a Bell Bracelet

This cool Bell Bracelet lets you jingle in style! You can jingle all around the world with it on your ankle or shake it on your wrist. It could even make a stylish necklace. Many cultures use ankle or wrist bells to make music during dancing. They jingle to the beat as you move.
