These simple knit bracelets are my most popular item, the variety available is extensive. They're flexible, comfortable, stackable, and durable; most people leave them on all the time, adding to their collection. I can help you choose just one, design nice groupings or add to what you already have. The following information describes sizes, metals, weaves and beads, all important for pricing and ordering. If worn continuously they will begin to wear out, if wire or a bead breaks, I offer free repairs for price of return postage.



As there is no clasp, they work on over the hand (hand bones determine size). Some people like them looser, draping onto the hand, but most wearers enjoy them snug on the wrist. If so, tighter is better, they work off easier than on, won't break in the process, and will loosen a little with wear. Approximate lengths are:  XS 6 3/4"  SM 7 1/4"  MED 7 3/4"  LG 8 1/2"  XLG 9 1/8", measure widest part of hand, keep in mind the hand compresses while the bracelet conforms. If in doubt about size, they can be exchanged if unworn. I usually have to show people at my shows, so here's a TIP: I suggest 'clawing' it on (for lack of a better word) over the 2 knuckles first, then the pinkie bone, past more skin, then finally the thumb bone, these bones aren't all lined up. Lotion or wet soapy hands make it easier, bangles with no beads will roll off & on.



These metal abbreviations are commonly used, notes refer to how each metal holds up to years of continuous wear in a bangle.


Yellow, white or rose Gold, call for price quote (around $550-800 per bracelet, depending on gauge & weave), wears beautifully


Gold-fill, no color change, constant wear and skin Ph will wear down gold on inside of bracelet after many years


Sterling silver, takes on a nice patina inside the weave, top surface stays bright from wear


Bare copper, quickly turns brown like a penny, outer edges buffed from wear, oxidizes skin in hot humidity


Brass, takes on an olive patina, mixes well with copper, oxidizes skin in high humidity


Color-coated copper, much thinner wire, with constant wear the nylon/teflon coating starts to wear away on top surface, revealing the copper. Coating has been fine for people with metal allergies. Two strands are used per bracelet, making great color combos, woven with glass beads only. Popular colors shown below.



I create 5 different weaves to accomodate various gauges of wire, the mixing of

metals, stone vs. metal beads, price options (tighter weave takes twice the time, uses twice the wire), and textural variations. Bangle prices shown are per metal in each weave, without beads, with no price change for sizes. Due to fluctuating prices of gold & silver I have recently lowered my prices, I watch the market to purchase wire when prices are lower to keep my prices rock bottom, lots of labor in these. 


heavier wire, open weave


2 strands of thinner wire, looser weave


single strand, tighter weave


double strand, tighter weave


chunkier look, double strand, open weave
