As you'll see, I tend to make a lot of rings and bangles that are pre-sized, but I can also make something for you to order*, in your size.  Please let me know if you need any help or advice with this - it's always a good idea to talk through exactly what you'd like and how you'd like it to fit.

If you'd like to have something made to size, you can of course visit a high street jeweller and check your ring size with them.  Or you can ask someone else to measure it for you using a tape measure. 

 

But if you don't want to venture out or ask a friend, please find a simple technique below, which you can use yourself at home.

 For this, you will need:

  • A piece of paper

  • Scissors (or you can tear, if you're good at tearing!)

  • Sticky tape

  • A pen or pencil

  • A ruler​

  1. Cut the paper into a strip, roughly twice the length of your little finger.

  2. Cut a piece of sticky tape and stick it onto one end of the strip of paper

  3. Wrap the paper around the knuckle of the finger you need to measure for a ring or around the widest part of your hand (usually your knuckles) if you need to measure for a bangle. It should feel comfortable - not too tight or too loose**. Try shaking your hand. If it feels like it might fall off, it's too big

  4. When it feels snug and comfortable, press the sticky tape onto the other end of the strip (it will probably overlap). You should now have a complete ring sitting on your knuckle (or hand, for a bangle).

  5. Take it on and off a few times, just to make sure it's not too tight/loose

  6. With your other hand, using the scissors, cut through the paper (away from the sticky tape joint to avoid dislodging it)

  7. You now have a flag paper ring or bangle.  Measure the length of it in millimetres or centimetres

  8. Send that measurement to me, with your order and I will make your jewellery to that size

*Please note that made-to-order items will take longer to deliver, as they need to be made from scratch

**Please also note that your hands can be larger or smaller depending on the weather and how warm/cold they are. If possible, check your ring size when you're hands are at room temperature
