A Little Adjustability

One of the things I like about doing art and craft shows and other events where I have my jewelry out in front of the public is how much I learn.  And one thing I heard a while ago that I have worked to incorporate into my work is adjustability.  We are all different shapes and sizes and even on the same person, the neckline of a garment can create the need for a different length necklace.  This is especially true of bracelets.

Where I can, I’ve been adding extra links so that the bracelets can accommodate more wrist sizes.  For some bracelets on my website, I’ve even added verbiage to the effect that I can add or remove links if needed at no additional charge.  And for customers in my local area, I create custom sized bracelets where needed.  We all want pretty things and sometimes standard sizing just doesn’t do.  At those times, little adjustability goes a long way.

  1. I, too, believe that everyone should have something that fits just right!

      Lori,

      Women, especially those who find standard sizing to be wrong for them, really appreciate being able to accessorize themselves with jewelry that works for their bodies and needs. I think the handcrafted jewelry market is an excellent resource because of our willingness to do a little tailoring, a little adjusting to fit the customer.
