I made three bracelets that are the same length (8″) but they fit differently because the size of the beads. You can make your own bracelet “sizer” from Plastic or Styrofoam cup.


How to make your own Bracelet Sizer:

Step 1. I made templates with pieces of thread, one for each size.

Step 2. Fold the thread in half; place a knot half size away from the fold. For example, for 7″ size, place a knot 3 ½” away


Step 3. Turn the Styrofoam cup upside down and slide the thread templates on it. Mark the cup with sharpie marker tracing on the threads.



Step 4. Slide your bracelets to determine the size.


This is such a simple and yet useful tip – how can you pass up using it every day!
