Original Post

A question if I may - Does anyone have a "standard" bracelet size they use? - obviously irrelevant for memory wire and elastic but I'm quite small and I'm never sure how long to make a bracelet with wire and a toggle clasp. I always say in listings I'm happy to adjust accordingly if you convo me beforehand but once you have designed a bracelet it can sometimes be difficult to adjust it too much - so I wondered if there was a standard - e.g. how long are they in shops when you buy them???? Mine tend to be around 8" long.

Feel free to use this to promote your bracelets as well! Would love to see. x

mine is 19cm ( 7 1/2 inch) and 20 cm (8 inches)
9 inches is too big.

I usually state that it will fit an average 7 inch wrist if indeed it does. Most of mine do. If designed for a smaller or larger wrist I will give that info and length. Some people don't allow for the diameter of the beads used and just stating the length can be deceptive. SOmetimes I can remake a bracelet to accommodate someone's needs.
