So I’m going to make bracelet blanks myself

June 10, 2010

During the Spring craft show season, I met several lovely ladies who had a larger wrist than mine. My 13 pad roughly 8 inch length bracelets were just toooo small. I also met some ladies who had really slim wrists that the “small” bracelet length of 11 pads were still too big and one friend I know said she had to remove 2 pads!

So after much thought, discussions with friends in particular Candy and Adele I decided to bite the bullet and buy the bracelet pads by the roll and make my own bracelets blanks so that I could accommodate the slightly larger and slimmer wrists than mine. Hence asking friends and people to let me know their wrist sizes.


Yeah today the box arrived, chain and pads and oh a few extra pieces to play about with. Yes, you do see a watch face… I’ve always loved what I discovered this week to be steam punk jewelry and thought I would experiment and see what I can do… so watch this space.


Oh and I walked passed my tight bud this morning taking the boys to school thinking oh that will bloom soon…. I came home to find this

    Hello Liz
    I came across your blog whilst searching for findings for my product. Is there any chance you could tell me where you got your ‘bracelet pads’ by the roll? I make bracelets here in the UK and have the same problem finding blanks that would fot the larger wrist.
    Many thanks

    Congratulations… I’ve never knitted another pair! I thought they were way too fussy!
