The chain is made using the three parallel weave, incorporating individually sawed and woven 18 gauge Argentium* Sterling Silver (925) jump rings. The jump rings are hand sawed to ensure a clean and flush cut edges. Depending on the size of the bracelet, I will use between 50 (5.5 inch bracelet) to 105 (9 inch bracelet) jump rings.
Argentium* Sterling Silver is tarnish resistance unlike regular sterling silver.
The bracelet includes a one inch extension chain or specify your required length.

How to measure for your size
To measure for proper bracelet fit, hold your hand and fingers outstretched, but cupped as if putting on the bracelet. Measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" (.6 cm) to 1 " (2.5 cm) (1/2" (1.3 cm)is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear.
Now measure around the widest part of your hand. Make sure the above measurement is a bit smaller than this area of your hand to ensure the bracelet won't slide off.
If this bracelet is a gift for an adult or young lady, and you don't know wrist size, 7" (17.8 cm)is considered petite, 7.25" (18.4 cm) is small, 7.5" (19.1 cm) is medium, 7.75" (19.7 cm) is large, and 8.0" (20.3) is XLarge. Average appears to be 7.25 to 7.5 inches (18.4 to 19.1 cm).
