    Default Complete beginner 🤣

    Hi, this is possibly the most stupid question youíre going to read 🤣
    Iíd like to make a cuff bracelet 1.5mm thickness, 3mm wide and 16cm long.
    When I put the measurements in to buy the Silver sheet itís coming up as £79.32
    Is this right? It seems a lot, surely I could buy a bracelet for less than that? What am I doing wrong??

    Hi Lou, welcome.
    Do you mean 3 mm wide or 3 cm for a cuff otherwise you could buy 3mm wire cut to length.
    Depends where you are buying a bracelet from and in what country itís made and silver is very expensive just now but that does seem a lot for 3mm wide

    it works out just over a tenner

    size is a bit big but after polishing will be right

    Yes 3mm sheet. It just seems really expensive! I thought maybe I was putting the measurements in wrong?

    How can the wire be that much cheaper than the same size but in sheet format?

    cutting sheet 3mm wide would be a pain I imagine not really sure but it does seem very expensive your right

    I got £8.22 for sheet so cheaper per gram because of the processing costs of wire I would imagine

    Your image is blurred so I can’t see what measurements you’re putting in but have you checked they both say mm?

    I think it must be a glitch or probably something I was doing as now it’s coming up at £8.22 ��
    Just out of interest how wide would you buy to make a nice chunky cuff?
    Absolutely love your work ��
