Resizing one of my cuff bracelets is easy, just follow the steps below!
- Measure the size of the current opening on your cuff bracelet. If you don’t have a ruler, just mark it on a piece of paper. I recommend increasing and decreasing size by approximately 1/4” increments - so if you want to go from a size small to a size medium, you’ll make the opening 1/4” larger. If you want to go from a size small to a size large you’ll make the opening 1/2” larger.
- Resin becomes malleable at higher temperatures. So, to change the size of your cuff place it in a sink/bowl of warm water for approximately 5 minutes. The water should feel quite warm to the touch, but not so hot that you can’t put your hand in it.
- After approximately 5 minutes, take your cuff out of the water - if it isn't quite adjustable yet, place it in for a couple more minutes - and if it still isn't adjustable then start over with warmer water.
- Once your cuff is malleable, you should gently adjust it to your desired size as determined in step 1 - either gently stretch it open slightly or gently press it slightly closed. Don’t stretch it excessively while it’s malleable - in other words, don’t test it to see how much you can possibly bend it. If you do, it will crack!
- Hold the cuff in place until the resin hardens again at room temperature, which will take about 5-10 minutes.
- That’s it! Try on your cuff - if you want to further adjust the size just repeat the process. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
