Subject: A question of sizing
I want to make some bangle bracelets, and a cuff bracelet. Construction is
fairly easy, especially if you have patterned wire.
My problem is this: I have large hands and wrist. wrist is 8 3/4" Now if
I use double half round wire, and saw between that double wire in the center
and pull it open some, I'd be losing some of the length, right? I figure
there should be a 1 1/2" open space on the back of the cuff. Does that mean
I should start with a 7 1/4" peice of wire?
On the bangle, I have one that fits. The diameter is 3". So if I multiply
3" by pi 3.16. that would round off to 9 1/2" I get confused because if I
carefully measure the inside of the bracelet, and then the outside, I get
two different measurements.
Now I know most of you are way beyond this problem. But it's making me
nuts. Am I missing something so easy, that I'm gona look stupid? Any help
would be appreciated.
Life is good.
