How the heck do I put this bracelet on myself? [VIDEO]

How to dress yourself-You all love the look of my multistrand bracelets but many of you are intimidated by the clasp. I've been clasping and unclasping my own bracelets for years without much trouble at all and I thought it was time to share my methods. I demo this often at craft shows and a few simple tips have helped many of you get fully dressed by yourself in the morning! In this video I demonstrate my tips.

Sizing- My multistrand bracelets come in three sizes:

  • Small is 7 1/4 inches long
  • Medium is 7 3/4 inches long
  • Large is 8 1/4 inches long

I am happy to fill custom orders for additional sizes- just let me know what you need!

Caring for your multi-strand bracelet- Keep your bracelet's clasp shiny by wearing it often, storing it in a closed container (such as a sealed baggie in your jewelry box), and polishing it with a silver polishing cloth if it becomes tarnished or dull. It's air and especially humid air that causes sterling silver to tarnish, so if you live in a humid climate you may notice your silver tarnishes more quickly.

A small amount of tension holds these clasps shut as the narrow bar (an electrician or mechanic might call this the "male end") slides into the wider bar ("female end"). Your clasp should be snug when it is closed and it should take some gentle force to open the clasp. If you find that after much wear your bracelet seems too easy to open or close, you can tighten it yourself or bring/send it back to the studio and I'll be happy to do it for you. To tighten the clasp yourself, open the clasp and take the "female end" and give it a gentle squeeze to narrow the gap, this will yield a more snug fit next time you close the clasp. If you do notice that your bracelet seems too easy to open, tighten it up (or bring it back to me to tighten for you) before continuing to wear it-- and you will be able to enjoy it for years to come!

I am the earring queen! I like that the earrings require some extra skill to make and that they are portable. I can take my little jewelry making kit anywhere and have - to many beaches on Martha's Vineyard, on the ferry, on trips in this country and to Africa, Haiti and beyond when I travel in my work as a song leader and collector.
