In this guide I’m going to give you a few methods to accurately measure your wrist with items everyone has in their house/barn for the best bracelet fit. When placing your order for a bracelet I would like to know your true wrist measurement. I can then adjust the size of the bracelet based on whether you prefer a tight fit or a looser fit. Measure your wrist at the location that you will most likely wear your bracelet and round up to the nearest 1/4 inch if you are in between sizes. Round down for a tighter fit, round up for a looser fit.
Method One: Measuring Tape
This method is the most accurate.
Use a soft fabric measuring tape and wrap it snuggly around where you’d wear your bracelet. Round up to the nearest quarter inch if you are in between measurements.
You can see in the picture, my measurement is 6 1/2 inches.
Method Two: String
3. Then take that piece and lay it across a ruler to get the measurement.
You can see using this method, my wrist measurement is 6 1/2 inches.
Method Three: Baling Twine
Of course all horse people have access to baling twine! If you don’t have a soft measuring tape or a piece of string you can use baling twine. This method is the least accurate, but we’ll adjust for it at the end.
1. Take a piece of baling twine and tie it tight around your wrist. You want it to be snug.
2. Using a piece of sharp scissors cut in the middle of the knot you’ve made. Take care to keep track of the piece of string that is wrapped around your wrist.
3. Then take that piece and lay it across a ruler to get your wrist measurement.
You can see that using this method added about 1/4 inch to my wrist measurement so it shows around 6 3/4 inches. You’ll want to keep this in mind if you use the baling twine method.
Keeping the knot tight during cutting will help keep your bracelet measurement closer to accurate. If you use the baling twine method please subtract 1/4 inch from your wrist measurement.
Your bracelet will be made according to the wrist measurement that you have given me. I start with that base wrist measurement, then adjust the bracelet length/circumference depending on if you'd like a tighter or a looser fit. Please take care while measuring to ensure the best fit.
