Getting the right size for a bracelet can be a bit tricky, and, along with wrist size, depends on other factors such as the overall length of the clasp and the thickness of the leather or beads you are using.

There are some general guidelines for bracelet sizes to start with when determining size. These are guidelines for FINISHED length and you’ll need to take the length of the clasp into account when determining the length of leather or strung/knotted beads needed.

The best way to ensure an accurate fit is to finish one end and try the bracelet on for size before finishing the other end. You can then adjust the length of the leather or beads before finishing. An alternative is to cut the leather or string beads to the EXACT length of the wrist; the clasp will typically add about ½ inch. You’ll need to check your clasp, however – some clasps can add more or less than ½”.

Here are some sizing guidelines for FINISHED LENGTH:

Age Finished Length
Adult Women 7-8"
Adult Men 8-9"
Sizing for children listed below:
3 5.25"
4 5.5"
5 5.75"
6-7 6"
8-9 6.25"
10-11 6.5"
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND BRACELETS FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3 DUE TO CHOKING HAZARD AND GLUE AND LEATHER DYES.
