Please enter size in notes during checkout. My standard sizes for "slip on bangles" are below. Keep in mind they slide on over the hand so aren't sized the same way as traditional bracelets using wrist size. These are designed for easy on & easy off without a clasp and cannot be made to open or adjust. If needed they can be resized. The following descriptions are meant to make it easy to choose a size if unable to measure hand circumference for a gift. Custom size measure tips are after sizes below.
Petite Adult (7 inch circumference) - Extra slim adult hand...
X Small (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer than average adult hand...
Small (8 inch circumference) - Average adult hand - MOST COMMON SIZE...
Medium (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium adult hand, a full size wider than average...
Large (9 inch circumference) - Large or plus size adult hand...
X Large (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra large adult hand...
Custom - Specify a custom size
***Between any 2 sizes above***
Between X Large and Large (9.25 inch circumference) - A tad wider than large adult hand
Between Medium and Large (8.75 inch circumference) - A tad wider than medium adult hand
Between Small and Medium (8.25 inch circumference) - A tad wider than average adult hand
Between X Small and Small (7.75 inch circumference) - A tad slimmer than average adult hand
Between Petite and X Small (7.25 inch circumference) - A tad slimmer than extra small adult hand
Pick the size that seems like the closest match. If you want to play it safe, my advice is to select only .25 inch above the size you are considering.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR CUSTOM SIZES:
Use a flexible tape to measure the circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle, with thumb tucked into palm across hand toward pinkie and holding fingers touching together side by side pointed straight out hand flat / knuckles flat in the back. The widest area of hand is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around. Measure tightly. If you don't have a flexible tape you may use a segment of string and then hold the string segment against a ruler.
All of my bangles are without a clasp for easy on & easy off. And cannot be made to open. I'm always happy to resize any bangle if it doesn't fit well. But for international orders the shipping charges can be prohibitive. I don't charge for the actual resizing even if I have to use new metal. I only ask if re-shipping can be covered by the customer.
This bracelet created and hand crafted with great care and love for you and yours. All of my items including this mama bear bracelet are special creations based on original Frosted Willow designs & concepts.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING NOTIFICATION -- During busy times of the year such as the holiday season or Mother's Day, the shippers may be overwhelmed with packages and can have trouble making timely deliveries Some packages may travel alternate routes during such times causing delays. The only service USPS guarantees is Priority Express 1-2 business days. During such times I work around the clock to handle all orders and ship out on time. But any shipping transit issues are out of my control. I wish I could hand deliver each package to all of my wonderful customers! Thank you so much for your understanding.
Also various pieces may have different turnaround / production times and they are displayed on the page for each piece. Shipping time will vary according to the option you select at checkout.
If you didn't include your jewelry customization requests in "notes box" during checkout such as sizes needed (see size chart below for bangles), initials or number of gift boxes, please send me a message at the following link with that information as soon as possible so I can make and ship your jewelry on time.
If important order details such as initials aren't provided to me I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. If no size is provided to me in time to produce the piece and meet the shipping deadline, then it's assumed the most common size is wanted.
Please see the bangle size chart below, and message me with any questions;

***Between sizes: I can also make the bangle halfway between any two sizes above. This can be helpful if caught between sizes, or if you're estimating "size range" for a gift.
*** Custom size: Use a flexible tape to measure the circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle. Tuck thumb into palm toward pinkie finger as far as comfortably possible while holding other fingers side by side pointed straight out (hand flat / knuckles flat in the back). The widest area is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around. Measure tightly.
*** I'm always happy to resize if needed. There's no charge for any new metal used on a resize. But re-shipping would be the responsibility of the customer.
My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand when held narrow.
If you didn't add enough total charms to your order including initial charms or crystals, etc, please add the extra charms to you cart so I can make your custom jewelry within the promised time frame;
I want to send your jewelry on time. And I want your jewelry to be made in the correct size on the first go around. However, if I'm not provided with important details such as initials needed, or size, and no reply is sent to my message, I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. Or I may have to make your jewelry in the most common size in order to meet the shipping deadline because if it's a gift I like to make sure you at least have that. If it needs to be resized later we can work something out.
Please contact me here with any personalizations / customizations as mentioned above;
I'd be happy to include a card with a short and sweet hand written message or if you would like me to print the message instead please communicate that to me in a timely fashion.
If you have a special shipping request, just let me know at time of purchase so I can do my best to accommodate.
While I can usually estimate a delivery date range for U.S packages, I cannot outright guarantee the performance of the shipper. International shipping times are hard to predict.
With respects to international orders, you are responsible for any customs charges, import taxes, VAT taxes or local handling fees for putting your package through customs for you that might be added by the government or your local mail service. For example in the UK, Royal Mail may charge an extra handling fee in addition to import or VAT taxes. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer / importer. Please be aware of such charges for importing goods from abroad prior to ordering.
Thank you so much,
