2-PIECE BANGLE CORE / WIDE WIDTH
This item is for a single 2-piece stainless steel bangle core with a channel width of 0.865". These cores are made from 316 Stainless Steel seamless tubing, having a 2.43", 2.55" or 2.67" inside diameter for woman's size 7.5, 8 or 8.5 bangle. Finished bangle width is 1.03". Use these bangle cores to create fabulous wood, glass or beaded bangles.
*** NOTE 2*** Wide bangle cores will feel smaller when trying them on due to the width, for this reason it is advisable to go to the next larger size if the fit is snug with the MID width cores we sell.
A word about sizes*
Bangle cores are sized based on the inside diameter of the bangle, and these diameters are largely driven by commercial availability of seamless tubing. As an example, a 2.55" ID bangle core will have an inside perimeter of 8.007" (2.55 times 3.14 (pi) = 8.007), thus it is a "woman's size 8".
However, an inside diameter of 2.32" actually has a perimeter of 7.28". So we round a little to avoid confusion. Here are the actual diameters and perimeters (or size):
2.32" ID = 7.28" perimeter (Size 7)
2.43" ID = 7.63" perimeter (Size 7.5)
2.55" ID = 8.01" perimeter (Size 8)
2.67" ID = 8.38" perimeter (Size 8.5)
2.8" ID = 8.8" perimeter (Size 9)
Even though the Inside Diameters do not vary much, the fit on a woman's wrist will be noticeable for each change in size. Size 8 is the industry standard for most commercially available bangles and bracelets.
Here is a quick way to check sizes:
A standard Kerr canning jar has an equivalent size that is between a size 7 and 7.5, so if you cannot slip your hand into a canning jar you are not a size 7.
A 20 oz jar of Del Monte sliced peaches has an ID of 2.5" which is an equivalent of size 8.
