January 31, 2011

Question:

I am wondering if there is a rule of thumb for sizing bracelets in inches. For adults, is there one size that fits most or do you make the same bracelet in 7", 8", and so on? I am speaking about less expensive, tourist type jewelry for shows, not the one of a kind pieces.

    Jan:
    The link offers you a good idea of what you need to have on hand. When you are saying “tourist type” I imagine you are referring to something with beads in it where you can keep the costs of making said bracelet down for you and offer at an attractive price to the public.
    Such a pattern is the Woven Beaded Bracelet offered in The Beginners Series – Part 4, which also has the pattern for earrings to match. I sell a lot of these bracelets and the earrings in copper, silver and gold-filled with no problem what so ever.
