Follow the guide below to measure for a full form resin bracelet. This type of bracelet is rigid and cast entirely from resin, so the knuckle and wrist measurements are very important to measure.

Step 1

Wrap a narrow strip of paper around your wrist so that it fits comfortably, allowing a little movement but not so much that it slips over your hand.

STEP 3

Lay the paper flat, and measure the length from the end to the mark you made. This is your wrist measurement, which is the circumference of your bangle.

STEP 4

Squash your fingers together making your hand as narrow as possible as though you are about to slip on a bangle.

STEP 8

Lay the paper flat, and measure the length from the end of the paper to the mark. This gives the circumference you need for your fixed sized bangle.

STEP 9

Cut your strip of paper at the point where you marked the measurement.
