Standard armband size?


This may be a funny question, but is there such a thing as a
’standard’ size for an armband? In other words, you have bracelets
usually at 7", chains go 16-18-22-24"…I’m sure cuff bracelets have
some kind of reasonably standard inside measurement(s). Is there such
a thing for armbands or is that just too uncommon a jewelry style?

Also if doing a wraparound armband with moderate detail (carving
from wax) is it better to make the thing flat and try to gently shape
it around a curve after casting, or just try to make the thing curved
from the start?

Osedo It is an interesting question as unlike the fingers and Necks
Arms tend to vary a lot. I can visualize Cleopatra, Sin-bad and then
you wonder if it will be Celtic or Roman in size. This could vary
from 5" to 15" may be more. One should make a Gauge for this and
perhaps I will try to make one and let you know now that warm
weather is here.
