How to Size for Mother's Bracelets - Ladies


To determine your correct bracelet length, first measure your wrist using a soft, flexible measuring tape - this is your wrist measurement. A general recommendation for sizing an adult bracelet is to add approximately 3/4 to 1 inch to your wrist measurement to determine the bracelet length. If you have a bracelet, similar in scale, which you like to wear and you like the way it fits, measure that bracelet to determine your the bracelet length.

My "standard" bracelet length is approximately 7-1/4" to 7-1/2" long. Do NOT assume that my "standard" size is your size. These bracelets are handstrung and bead sizes vary. Sizing is not always exact, but will be within 1/8" of your requested length. In order for the toggle clasp to be secure, it is very important that the bracelet fit properly.

If the bracelet is a gift and you do not know the wrist measurement or bracelet length, indicate what you think it might be based on the general sizing guidelines above. I will gladly resize a gift bracelet at no charge if it does not fit properly.
