The bracelet you will receive will be slightly darker than the one shown. It will have an oxidized finish which really helps to define the texture on the piece. The patina you see in these photos comes from the constant wearing of the silver against my skin and the cleaning of it in the shower. I strongly suggest you wear all of your silver often and as long as possible (and especially in the shower) to give it this great patina! If you do so, your bracelet will look like the one in the photos.
I can easily customize the length of this bracelet simply by adding or subtracting links. To measure your wrist or ankle, use a piece of string. Wrap it around the area and get it to the desired tightness, then measure just the string between where the ends meet (no overlapping). That may be a little had to understand. I know it was hard to try and describe. If you need further assistance, convo me. :) If you do not specify a length, you will get a 7 inch bracelet.
