A question of sizing (fwd)

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.

My suggestion here is to leave extra metal and cut it to fit after you
have the bracelet near completion…G

Don’t wish to bug you but pi is 3.1316…

Gee, where I come from pi is a little closer to 3.141592653…
I know that in Indianna the law is that it is 3.2.
Where are you from?
