Went through a lengthy process to get here - from plain, simple silver bangles to bangles with pearl only to bangle with fleur de lis only to both (see photo above) and then finally to bangles with both charms on the same small jumpring. whew. I have always made simple bangles but there are lots of simple bangles out there. To make these a little special, I have added a small freshwater pearl and a hand-stamped fleur de lis on a sterling silver disk. I have also be fine turning the sizes for these bangles - small, medium, large and extra large. that, too, has been a process. how did my bracelets ever evolve into being seemingly random sizes??? anyway, apparently, these are the appropriate DIAMETERS for those sizes: 2 3/8" = small, 2 5/8" = medium, 2 7/8 = large and 3 1/8" = extra large! oh, AND 2 1/8 = extra small for the petite among you!
