Regaliz LeatherThe average woman's wrist measures between 6.5 and 7 inches if she's small or between 7 and 8 inches if she's not. For a man, the average wrist is between 8 and 9 inches. This means leather sold by the foot will waste several inches of product. That is why we sell this luxury leather by the inch so you purchase what you need and don't have a left over piece that's too short to do anything with. In order to know in advance what length to buy we've come up with a tutorial for you. There are a couple of variables to consider here.

The clasp is going to add to the length. How much of the leather is inside the glue recess?

Sliders take up room, in essence making the bracelet shorter.

What will work best is to carefully measure the wrist with a piece of string or, measure a bracelet that fits well. Once the clasp is glued it stays put so you need to do these steps of preparation!
