Bracelet Sizer

It is so annoying when making a bracelet to finish it and realize that although the length is right somehow it doesn't fit correctly. When making beaded jewelry the beads take up space unlike a slinky chain bracelet. So the inside circumference has to be considered for the correct size. I found this out the hard way of course after making and restringing several bracelets.
So one of the easiest ways to correctly size a bracelet is with a cone shaped bracelet sizer. They are for sale at many bead suppliers but I recently found this handmade one. It is so easy to print at home and not wait for delivery. It is very accurate and makes your work so much easier.
