TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL?
THE 1GD BEADS
If you are not sure whether your bracelet fits, be sure to check the adjustment of its length first. Your bracelet should be long enough to wrap around your wrist three times and fit to your desired comfort.
You can view how to adjust the size here.
When you slide the knot away from the beads, the bracelet is lengthened. If the knot slides closer to the beads, the bracelet will be shorter.
Here are wrists sizes for each size:
Petite/Small: Under 6.5"
Medium/Large: Over 6.5"
Each bracelet has exactly 100 glass beads. Rest assured your bracelet does not have fewer beads, the third time it wraps around your wrist is partly the handmade cord.
The length of cord that appears on the third wrap around your wrist, is determined by the length adjustment. For example, if the position of the knot is closest to the button, the third wrap around your wrist will be mostly the handmade cord. But no matter what, there will always be 100 beads.
WHEN IN DOUBT
If both sizes work for your wrist, we recommend sizing up, to allow for a little extra space, once fitted.

DOES YOUR BRACELET SEEM STIFF?
When the bracelets are made, the beads are strung very snug. This is to allow room for the bracelet to stretch, after just a short period of time. Soon enough, your bracelet will be supple and wrap smoothly.
CARING FOR YOUR BRACELET
WANT TO PARTICIPATE BUT DON'T WEAR BRACELETS?
The 1GD bracelet can also be worn as a necklace or an anklet! Or if you prefer to donate directly to the vulnerable
women making the bracelets, you can do so here.
1GD bracelets are made from nylon thread, glass beads, a rubber ring and a single brass button with a stainless steel overlay. Stainless steel is hypoallergenic and very durable.
If you wish to clean your bracelet, we recommend using
a damp cloth and mild soap to simply wipe until dirt is removed. We do not recommend bathing with your bracelet, as this may stretch the length.
We're here to help. Below are some tips
on how to wear your 1GD bracelet.
