Sterling Silver Rivet Bangle Bracelet with Copper Star Accent
Please make sure to read this listing carefully before purchasing.
Each bangle is made from 12 Gauge Sterling Silver round wire that has been textured and closed with a sterling silver rivet. Attached under the rivet is a small copper star. This piece is meant to have imperfections making this a unique piece of rustic style jewelry.
Outside measurement of the bangle is approximately 9" around with an inside diameter of approximately 2 11/16" (68.2625mm). Bracelet falls into the M-L category. Please keep in mind that these items are made and shaped by hand so there will be slight variations and differences between each piece. Because the bangle is closed with a rivet some bangles may take on more of an oval shape than an actual circle or be flatter on the rivet side. Please keep in mind that all jewelry will bend and distort with extended time and wear. To prolong the life of your jewelry do not wear in situations where it may get wet or while you are sleeping.
There are several things you can do to determine if this bracelet is the right size for you. One option is to measure the inside diameter of a bracelet or bangle that you already own. The second option is to measure your hand at the widest part. This can be accomplished by holding you hand in the position you would to put on a bangle and the measure around the largest part of your hand including your thumb knuckle with a piece of string or tape measure. My personal measurements: the widest part of my hand is 8.5" (215.9mm) and I have wrist of 6.5" (152.4mm).
Please keep in mind that the natural oils from your hands will also tarnish and oxidize the metals over time which will add a nice patina on the copper star.

Here is a list of all of the yarn bases that are carried and their fiber content. Please keep in mind that color distribution and saturation will vary greatly from base to base and from what is depicted in each listing.
I do a lot research to make sure that all of the bases that I carry are ethically sourced from reputable, cruelty-free, mulesing-free farms and mills from around the world. My yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes in smoke-free, pet free, and dedicated space that I affectionately call my dye lab.And I also wash all of my yarns after dyeing them with a lavender wool wash. However, while my dye studio is pet free, I do have 4 cats and cat hair a mysterious thing and seems to find its way into all places.
Currently I am working on the discontinuation of a lot of yarn bases and I will also be bringing in a few new ones.
Additional information as of July 2020: Because of Covid-19, supplies of milled yarn is limited as some mills have had to close or are running at half capacity at this particular time. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it ensures the safety of their employees and the product that they in turn are sending to us. This is why all new colors are this point will be preorders. If you are looking for a specific quantity on a specific base for that special project please do not hesitate to contact me for a custom order.
*NEW* Aurora: (possibly limited edition at this time) This a 4 ply fingering base yarn that consist of 70% Superwash Merino Wool and 30% Nylon. This super wash merino wool has a subtle softness and warmth while the extra nylon content gives this yarn some added strength.

I suggest hand washing in cold water with a little wool wash and then dry flat.

Snug: is a 4-ply blend of 75% superwash Merino wool and 25% Nylon. The springy superwash merino makes this yarn super soft to touch. Yarn can be machine washed and tumble dry low. Each skein of 462 yds/ 100 grams. This base also comes in mini skeins of 92 yds/ 20 grams
Note: Because mill production in some areas has slowed down due to Covid business precautions, I am able to get the same Snug base from two different suppliers at this time. If my first supplier is sold out, but I am able to get some from a second supplier. But you may notice that while those hanks are the same exact fiber content and yardage, those skeins are a little bit softer and fluffier than the Snug base you may be used to getting. To help with that distinction on the website I will be referring to those as "Snug 2" when giving you different yarn base options to choose from.
