A Plague of Too Small Bracelets

A pox on me!  What is the matter that I keep winding up with too small bracelets?  Ok, the first time it was B&B's fault but this time it's MY fault!  Waaaaahhhhhh! I love this bracelet and wanted to keep it.  Sigh.......  And it's only a little bit too small, too.  Good thing I have girlfriends with smaller wrists than mine.  :)  Altho, I think I'll put it on my ArtFire shop.  It's cool, don't you think?  My first attempt at ndebele herringbone.  WHO can pronounce that word correctly?  Someone please tell me how to say it?  I keep thinking it sounds like someone from Boston saying, "under belly".  :D

NDEBELE is the name of a South African tribe and is pronounced EN DEE BELLY .
Under Belly is the name of an Australia TV series.
Now the lesson is over, let's get to the bracelet YT.

N-da-belly is how Diane Fitzgerald pronounces it. Herringbone is easier. LOL

Very pretty! Too bad it's too small, bummer when that kind of thing happens. Listing it in your Artfire shop is a good idea, it's lovely, someone will enjoy wearing it! :)

Here's a thought, Moe.
For a continuous bracelet like this, you must make it to slide over your fist, not your wrist. Find some kind of form (a glass, a cardboard tube or something) that has the same circumfrence as your fist, and use that as a measure. Remember to plan for the join as well. HTH

Well, hey, short means less beads, less work. ;)

Hmmm, short means fewer beads. Col...I wanted to wear it! Now I gotta shrink! :(

Thanks Gills and Pammie. I'll stick with herringbone. I just can't get that east coast "undabellie" out of my head. :D
