Once you determine the length of bangle you want, figure the difference. For example, if you want a 7½"" finished bangle and the length of the components is 8¼", you will need to remove 2" in length according to the chart because the component length you need is 6¼". The amount you remove needs to be divided equally between the two twisted wire coils on the ends of the bangle. In other words, you need to remove 1" from each of the two twisted wire coils (save what you remove as you can use it for spacers in other bangles). Tuck the cut wire ends in as in Step 4.
