    Default Measurements

    I've ordered some silver so I'm going to make a bracelet and a cuff this week.
    I've made bangles but these are new to me.
    What is the standard length for a linked bracelet and also a cuff? My bangles have been 21 to 22 cm but am I right in thinking I should make these slightly less
    thanks

    19cm is the standard length for a bracelet.
    Bangles tend to be 65mm diameter (although this is too small for me personally, it does seem to fit most people.)

    Depends what style of cuff.......

    19cm would give you a chain bracelet with a little bit of "drop" over the hand.
    For a cuff I guess it depends what look you are going for. In a wide cuff that would probably be too big, on a narrow cuff it might work, but are you making an open backed cuff?

    I make cuffs 5.5" (small) 6" (medium) and 6.5" (large). Sorry I don't do metric.
