HOW TO CHOOSE A SIZE:
Measure your wrist just below your wrist bone with a flexible tape measure OR Measure your wrist with a string or strip of paper. Mark your wrist size and use a ruler to measure the length.
Order the size that is closest to this measurement.
For example, if you measure your wrist using the directions and it is 7.5 inches in circumference. You should ORDER the 7.5-inch measurement. I adjust the cuff to fit when I make it.
Average Women's wrists measure 6 - 6.5 inches.
Average Men's wrists measure 7 - 7.5 inches.
A NOTE ABOUT COPPER JEWELRY AND OXIDATION:
Unless the Protective Finish is purchased, I do not coat my jewelry with lacquer or other chemicals. After contact with skin, copper may oxidize or develop a dark patina. Water, ocean air, lotions, soaps, oils from your skin and even your own body chemistry will all affect how quickly your piece will turn. This may happen in a few days or weeks.
The process of oxidization (darkening) may also cause discoloration of the skin. It is not harmful to one's health and is readily washed off with soap and water.
A simple solution to prevent this is adding 1-2 coats of clear fingernail polish on the inside of the cuff. This will provide a temporary barrier to the skin and prevent discoloration. It will need to be repeated after prolonged wear.
You can polish the bracelet with a jewelry polishing cloth or with any copper cleaner, My favorite is 'Penny Bright'.
You have the option to add a sealant to this cuff if you want a more polished look to your jewelry or do not want to deal with cleaning your piece regularly. This is a labor-intensive process, adds several coats of a durable sealant cuff to keep your piece from oxidizing.
THIS COATING DOES NOT HAVE A LIFETIME GUARANTEE but can last for many months to years, depending on how you wear your cuff. To help extend the life of this coating, it is best not to wear the piece while swimming or bathing.
I personally hand stamp my pieces. Hand Stamping is different from an engraving process. Each letter, number and symbol is created using individual stamping tools.
Variations in spacing and letter/number alignment may occur. These differences should not be seen as defects, but rather adding to the charm and uniqueness of each piece. These cuffs are handmade and not made with a machine, so no two items will ever look exactly alike.
