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.
