These knit bangles are popular and I still receive orders. The variety is extensive, they're flexible, stackable and durable. Most people leave them on all the time. I'm happy to assist, will need to know size, metal, weave &/or beads. The following will help.

 


Sizes
 

As there is no clasp, they work on over the hand bones, which determines size (not the wrist). Some like them loose, most enjoy them snug. They come off easier, won't break in the process and will relax with wear. It's hard to measure a circle, but roughly XS 6-3/4" SM 7-1/4" MED 7-3/4" LG 8-1/2" XLG 9-1/8". I had to show people the trick: I suggest 'clawing' it on using finger tips, over the index knuckles first, pinky bone and back of hand, then the thumb bone. Lotion or wet soapy hands make it easier. If no beads, will roll off & on. Be patient, it becomes easy. Mistaken size orders can be exchanged.

 


Weaves
 

These abbreviations are common, notes refer to continuous wear, all can be cleaned with toothbrush after soaking in dish soap

 
 
14/18KT

Yellow, white or rose Gold, ~$6-800, depends on gauge & weave, wears beautifully

GF

Gold-fill, no color change, constant wear and skin Ph will wear down gold on inside of bracelet, revealing base metal

SS

Sterling silver, takes on a nice patina inside the weave, top surface stays bright from wear

CP

Bare copper, quickly turns brown like a penny, outer edges buffed from wear, oxidizes skin in hot humidity. Softer metal will thin sooner

BR

Brass, takes on an olive patina, mixes well with copper, oxidizes skin in high humidity

CC

Color-coated copper is thinner wire, needs 2 strands in a denser weave, with glass beads only. Not as durable as above metals, with constant wear the nylon/teflon coating wears away revealing the copper. Popular color combos shown below.

           
 


Weaves
 

I make 5 different weaves with various gauges, mixing metals, denser ones take longer using more wire. Bangle prices shown have no price change for sizes but can fluctuate a little with metal prices.

A

heavier wire, open weave

B

2 strands of thinner wire, looser weave

C

single strand, tighter weave

D

double strand, tighter weave

E

chunkier look, double strand, open weave
