How to Modify an Elastic Bracelet

INSTRUCTIONS:
Here are just 8 simple steps.

To shorten or lengthen your bracelet, it is better to use the new elastic cord that comes with your alteration kit (you should have at least one matching bead, one elastic cord and one steel leading wire). If you've never measured your wrist size,
here is how to measure your wrist for a perfect fit.

Wrist / Ankle Measurement
-It is important for us to make your bracelet or anklet to fit exactly where you want it.-
(*For anklet buyers, you may measure your ankle just the same way as you measure your wrists.) 
Measuring around your wrist or ankle is different than measuring a bracelet or anklet from end to end lengthwise.
Please note: Different bead sizes affect the the measurement of your bracelet lengthwise. Regardless of bead size, the inside circumference of your bracelet is all the same. 

Here's how to measure your wrist: Wrap around your wrist using a thin flexible measuring tape, and measure where you would like to wear your bracelet
*No need to add extra length. We add close to a 1/4 inch to each bracelet for your comfort.


NO MEASURING TAPE?
No problem!

If you don't have a flexible measuring tape handy, you may use a strip of thin paper or a thin string (be sure they are thin). Wrap and mark where it overlaps on your wrist, and then lay the strip or string flat to measure up to the mark using a standard ruler.
