BANGLE SIZE CHART:

My standard sizes for "slip on bangles" are below. Keep in mind they slide on over the hand. So aren't sized the same way as traditional bracelets using wrist size. The following descriptions are meant to make it easy to choose a size if unable to measure hand circumference for gifts. And I'm always happy to resize if needed. There's no charge for any new metal used on a resize. But re-shipping is the responsibility of the customer.

Petite Hand: (7 inch circumference) - Extra Slim Adult or Slim Teen
X Small Hand: (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer Than Average Adult or Average Teen
Small Hand: (8 inch circumference) - Average Adult or Adult Size Teen MOST COMMON SIZE
Medium Hand: (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium Adult 2ND MOST COMMON
Large Hand: (9 inch circumference) - Plus Size Adult
X Large Hand: (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra Large Adult

***Between sizes: I can also make the bangle halfway between any two sizes above. This can be helpful if caught between sizes, or if you're estimating "size range" for a gift.

***Custom size: Use a flexible tape to measure the hand circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle with thumb tucked in across palm of hand toward pinkie, and fingers touching together side by side pointed straight out (with hand flat / knuckles flat in the back). The widest area is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around.

My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand when held narrow.

Choose from initial bangle bracelets, family tree bangle bracelets, name bangle bracelets, date bangle bracelets, rhinestone bangle bracelets, vintage glass bangle bracelets, gemstone bangle bracelets and more.

About FrostedWillow

Sales 125,630
On Etsy since 2009

In the beginning...

In 2009 I started experimenting with various vintage pieces I collected from the fleamarket. Through lots of trial and error, I discovered that by using thin wire that I crimped very tightly shut on both ends, I could create a true bangle bracelet that is closed and slips over the hand (saving the time it would take the wearer to deal with a clasp).

Unlike traditional bracelets that open with a loop, this method enabled me to use thinner wire that won't weigh down your wrist like traditional heavy bangles, thus giving you a light & dainty, jingly feel on your wrist.

My Frosted Willow® bangles are lightweight yet strong, and are easy to wear. If you enjoy stacking bangles, you can stack many together for the ultimate layered bangle look.

And since my new method of creating charm bangles does not require the use of soldering, I can also make bangles with many findings that would otherwise be damaged by regular soldering methods, such as gemstones, rhinestones, and vintage glass that normally could only be used in the creation of earrings, necklaces, or chain bracelets.

The result is a new kind of bangle bracelet with light & dainty thin wire, using various center pieces never before used in bangle bracelets.

You can stack and combine my various Frosted Willow bangles in many different ways to create your own signature look wheather you are looking for bangle charm bracelets of a nature or nautical theme, gemstone bangle bracelets, rhinestone bangle bracelets, initial bangle bracelets, friendship bangle bracelets, infinity bangle bracelets, or family bangle bracelets.

I create every bangle to order one at a time. This ensures that each piece is custom made to size for each order and I can accommodate most requests to personalize each piece or set of jewelry.

I am proud to be the original creator of thin wire stackable charm bangles that slip over the wrist so many people have fallen in love with, and one of the most popular jewelry designers on Etsy... My little Etsy shop has come a long way since I first started while still working full time as Interior Designer. Now it has become a family business. I am home with my 2 little girls and my parents help me with packaging, shipping and customer service while my husband is helping with listings and SEO.

I feel extremely lucky to be working with what I love most; creating jewelry, piece after piece, all while spending lots of time with my entire family.

***Between sizes: I can also make the bangle halfway between any two sizes above. This can be helpful if caught between sizes, or if you're estimating "size range" for a gift.

***Custom size: Use a flexible tape to measure the circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle. Tuck thumb into palm toward pinkie finger as far as comfortably possible while holding other fingers side by side pointed straight out (hand flat / knuckles flat in the back). The widest area is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around. Measure tightly.

*** I'm always happy to resize if needed. There's no charge for any new metal used on a resize. But re-shipping is the responsibility of the customer.

My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand when held narrow.

My jewelry is not intended for infants or young children. Children may be tempted to put jewelry into their mouths, and as with any jewelry, there's always some risk of a piece coming loose or breaking and becoming a choking hazard.

Care of Sterling Silver:

All silver can accumulate tarnish and it is usually very easy to clean with a polishing pad. Sometimes silver can collect tarnish very quickly depending on compounds in the air it's exposed to such as sulfur (think cooking eggs or onions) perfume, hairspray, sulfur from groundwater sprinklers, and the list goes on and on. Silver can tarnish just sitting in a jewelry box as the air has no circulation so if tarnishing compounds are in the box then silver will collect tarnish. Clean with a polishing pad or your favorite silver cleaner. Tarnish is not grounds for a return as other silver products would have also developed tarnish under the same conditions. Generally all silver requires care to keep looking shiny. And it's an industry in itself with cleaning solutions, polishing pads, anti-tarnish strips for storage, and anti-tarnish jewelry boxes.

Care of Brass;

Brass darkens over time depending on conditions exposed to and develops a rich patina that some find pleasing. However, if you prefer the bright gold-like look of the new brass bangle band, it can easily be restored.
Just use a little bit of ketchup and rub it into the metal. Try not to get in onto any stones since the tomato in the ketchup is acidic and might hurt the stone. The same property will quickly clean the brass. Use a paper towel to rub the ketchup around on the metal and them clean it all off with some water. Voila! All bright and shiny again. Repeat this process as often as you like.

Brass vs. 14k Gold-Filled

Brass tarnishes over time depending on conditions exposed to and develops a rich patina. This patina as a nice old world look to it, but it can also be cleaned off very quickly and easily with ketchup as explained earlier.

14k gold-filled is a layer of gold over brass. It is thicker than typical gold-plated and longer lasting. It is nicely resistant to tarnish, staying bright and shiny, and also has a little bit more sparkle to it than the brass and it is a little firmer than brass bangle bands. This keeps the bangle band stiffer so it will stay in shape better than the brass. 14k gold filled can be cleaned with a non-phosphate dish liquid mixed in warm water. Gently use fingers to rub about 14k gold filled items and rinse and air dry.

To sum it up, if you don’t mind a darker patina or cleaning the brass, go for it. If you are looking for something a little brighter and with firmer shape and form, I would suggest the 14k gold filled bangle band version.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to fully enjoy your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied, please contact me, and I will do my best to make it right for you. I'm happy to re-size any bangles you ordered free of resizing charge. I only ask that you cover the re-shipping charges.

Any hand stamped or engraved personalized items or custom made items are not eligible to be returned, unless there is a defect such as incorrect initials... Custom made items include bangles made to a custom size specified by the customer... Or if a custom size wasn't provided to me in time to meet the shipping deadline, and I made the bangle size 8" as per my policies. In such a case I'm happy to resize any bangle without charging for the work or without charging for any new metal required to complete the resize provided shipping is covered by the customer. Hand stamped or engraved personalize items are not eligible for return.

Wedding jewelry / bridesmaid jewelry is not eligible to be returned. I work hard to make larger orders for a wedding including for multiple bridesmaids or a multiple jewelry set for bride. On occasion I've had customers attempt to return jewelry after the conclusion of their wedding because it's only been worn one time. Jewelry that I make for a wedding order is not eligible to be "borrowed" for the occasion and then returned.

Wholesale orders are not eligible for return. You may order a small number of pieces at first if you want to sample the merchandise prior to placing a large order.

Other non custom pieces can be returned within 30 days of the order date if notice is provided within 14 days of delivery of intent to return. As soon as I receive the item, I will issue a refund to you for the price of the product, not including the shipping charge in either direction unless their was a mistake on my part with the order.
If I sent your item free shipping, then this amount would be deducted from any refund.

I cannot refund or replace any items that have somehow gone missing from your delivery address, but have been marked "delivered" by USPS or other shipping service.

Regarding tarnish, all silver is prone to tarnish. It can collect tarnish very quickly depending on compounds in the air it's exposed to such as perfume, hairspray, humidity, sulfur from groundwater sprinklers, (eggs or onions cooking), and the list goes on and on. Silver can tarnish just sitting in a jewelry box if the air has any humidity or tarnishing compounds. And tarnish is not grounds for a return as other silver products would have also developed tarnish under the same conditions.

All silver requires care to keep looking shiny. And it's an industry in itself with cleaning solutions, polishing pads, anti-tarnish strips for storage, and anti-tarnish jewelry boxes.

Brass also can develop tarnish and can be removed with a cleaner.
Shipping
Various pieces may have different turnaround / production times and they are displayed on the page for each piece. Shipping time will vary according to the option you select at checkout.

If you didn't include your jewelry customization requests in "notes box" during checkout such as sizes needed (see size chart below for bangles), initials or number of gift boxes, please send me a message at the following link with that information as soon as possible so I can make and ship your jewelry on time.
https://www.etsy.com/conversations/new?with_id=7875084

If important order details such as initials aren't provided to me I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. If no size is provided to me in time to produce the piece and meet the shipping deadline, then it's assumed the most common size is wanted.

Please see the bangle size chart below, and message me with any questions;

My standard sizes for "slip on bangles" are below. Keep in mind they slide on over the hand. So aren't sized the same way as traditional bracelets using wrist size.

I want to send your jewelry on time. And I want your jewelry to be made in the correct size on the first go around. However, if I'm not provided with important details such as initials needed, or size, and no reply is sent to my message, I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. Or I may have to make your jewelry in the most common size in order to meet the shipping deadline because if it's a gift I like to make sure you at least have that. If it needs to be resized later we can work something out.

Please contact me here with any personalizations / customizations as mentioned above;
https://www.etsy.com/conversations/new?with_id=7875084

I'd be happy to include a card with a short and sweet hand written message or if you would like me to print the message instead please communicate that to me in a timely fashion.

If you have a special shipping request, just let me know at time of purchase so I can do my best to accommodate.

While I can usually estimate a delivery date range for U.S packages, I cannot outright guarantee the performance of the shipper. International shipping times are hard to predict.

With respects to international orders, you are responsible for any customs charges, import taxes, VAT taxes or local handling fees for putting your package through customs for you that might be added by the government or your local mail service. For example in the UK, Royal Mail may charge an extra handling fee in addition to import or VAT taxes. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer / importer. Please be aware of such charges for importing goods from abroad prior to ordering.

Thank you so much,
Katrin :)
