    Default Get Out the Bangle Sizer.

    When I showed The Whole Caboodle in the liquorice colours last month, I missed out a bracelet, cuff, or bangle. So it was Ďget out the bangle sizerí.

    That was easier said than done, because it was stored in the back of a drawer somewhere and hadnít seen daylight for years.

    My new three layer bangle in brown and beige is in my second picture, below. It is made from an octagonal disk, sandwiched between two round disks.

    No sooner was it done than I had a request for another one in Suffragette colours: green white and violet, to stand for hope, purity, loyalty and dignity, and also Give Women the Vote. Dennis.

    Brilliantly done Dennis (though I'd expect no less). The suffragette version, which is fabulous, would do a very nice double-duty for Wimbledon, I suspect

    Thank you all for liking my bangles. I'm hoping that they will jolly up an outfit for a night out. Kind regards, Dennis.

    I'm glad you found your bangle sizer as I think that acrylic is extremely well suited to bangles. I'd wear either of those!

    Thank you, yes they are. Some 2Ĺ years ago I bought a colour assortment of 3mm acrylic sheet, thinking I would make some retro brooches.
    You get a lot for your money and I still have plenty left.

    I presume the sections are glued together ? ( if so very neatly done )What type of adhesive do you use for acrylics ?
