The 6 inch bracelet is a 6 inch length of copper with a 1 inch opening. This size will fit a wide range of wrists, from 5 1/2 inches up to 7 inches.
The 7 inch bracelet is a 7 inch length of copper, with a 1 inch opening. This size will fit wrists from 7 inches up to 8 1/2 inches.
Measuring for your size:
There are several ways to measure your wrist.
First: Use a flexible tape measure and measure around your wrist at the spot where you prefer your bracelets to sit. If it measures between 5 1/2 and 7 inches, choose the 6 inch bracelet. If your wrist measures over 7 inches, choose the 7 inch bracelet. There is wiggle room in the sizing. You can go bigger or smaller depending on if you like a looser or tighter bracelet.
If you don’t have a tape measure but do have a ruler, wrap a strip of paper around your wrist and mark off the length. Check the size against a ruler.
Caring for your copper jewelry:
Tarnish and discoloration is a normal part of copper jewelry and is to be expected. Periodically you should wash your copper jewelry in warm soapy water, making sure to dry it thoroughly with a soft cloth. In between washing, buff it with a polishing cloth to help keep the tarnish down. When you aren’t wearing your piece, store it in the box it came in, or in a closed plastic zip bag to keep the tarnish to a minimum.
Copper will turn some peoples skin green. It isn’t harmful, and it is very normal and it washes off with soap and water.
