Learning how to make your own jewelry allows you to make DIY bracelets and homemade necklace patterns that actually fit your own dimensions. Much like sewing your own clothes, making DIY jewelry gives you the opportunity to make a beaded bracelet pattern that will stay snug on your wrist without squeezing too tightly onto your skin. Not everyone is the same size and making your own accessories can be liberating. Check out the free bracelet size chart below to get some general estimates for your DIY jewelry as well as some options as to how to customize beading patterns.
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that the sizing charts below are by no means an end-all be-all when it comes to bracelet sizing. Before committing to a bracelet size and creating a bracelet pattern, measure your own wrist to ensure that you make something that will fit. These suggestions are mostly for crafters who are making gifts and need a general measurement. The best way to size bracelet patterns is to make sure you measure your wrist with a tape measure.

Bracelet Size Chart

If you are wondering how long to make a bracelet pattern for a friend, your daughter, or even your man, the bracelet size chart below will give you a general idea as to how long to make your bracelet. Keep in mind that each and every person is different and you will want to make sure you are creating something that will actually fit. Some guys, for example, might have much thicker wrists than the average man. The converse can be true, as well!

Bracelet Sizing Tips

Usually when you are making a DIY bracelet you know exactly when and where you or the person you are giving it to will wear it. This can really help you created the perfect beaded bracelet pattern or other DIY bracelet pattern. Check out the following tips for perfecting the art of bracelet sizing.

  1. If you are planning on wearing your brand new bracelet overtop of clothing instead of beneath, make sure to give it some extra give in order for it to fit comfortably.

  2. Always keep in mind how you plan to connect your bracelet and how much extra space this might take. If you are employing a larger clasp, for example, you might want to make the main portion of your bracelet smaller.

  3. As a general rule, always make your beaded bracelet patterns longer at the beginning. It’s MUCH easier to make your project shorter by removing beads than it is to lengthen it.

  4. When creating bracelets for kids, make sure that you make it tight enough to stay on their wrist. You also want to give it just a little bit of give, however, because little wrists just get bigger.
