What about shipping?
The current turnaround time for the personalized bangles and necklaces is about 2 weeks. Email to see if the kids are in camp, school, or what our schedule is like... Faster shipping is possible, but it costs more money, obviously. Please note, due to numerous issues with USPS over the holidays, most orders will be shipped UPS Ground.
Do you need to have a bangle resized, a charm added, or another adjustment made by English? Here is the shipping link to pay for return shipping to you.
Personalized bangles and how to size
The personalized bangles are individually handcrafted and cannot be returned. After you place your order, you'll receive an email asking about what you would like on the bangle and what size it should be. The typical bangle is 8" in inner circumference, but it can be made larger or smaller depending on the person's hand size. While wrist size might seem important, the bangle should fit snugly over the person's hand so it is the hand size that really matters. To get a perfect fit, take a strip of paper, mark 1/4" increments, and tape together. See what size the hand fits through. It should be a slight struggle to get a bangle over the hand so that it fits comfortably on the wrist.
If the bangle is a gift, you might want to keep it a surprise :) Therefore, think about the recipient's hand. If the person has ever joked about having "man hands" (I'm not kidding- I can't tell you how many women describe their hands as such!), you will want to go up to an 8 1/4" or even an 8 1/2". If the person has a small frame or "dainty" hands, you might want to go to a 7 1/2" or a 7 3/4". I have often said that I can make a bangle smaller, but I can't make it bigger. If you do need me to adjust the size smaller, you can ship it back to me and pay for the return shipping back to you. Please note that the silver and silver with 18K gold dots bangles tend to work better with resizing. The 14k goldfill doesn't always do as well with heat applied twice...
I don't mind making one adjustment in sizing a bangle down (one time), but please recognize that this is a favor to you. This does not mean the bangle is guaranteed to fit. I'm just trying to make happy customers :) Please recognize that if you return a bangle to be sized down, I consider it a change order and it moves to the bottom of the priority pile after current orders have been filled. (So please don't act all demanding and expect it back within 3 days- especially during the beginning of school or when I'm on vacation. And it seems silly to even put this in writing, but I can't tell you how demanding some people have been with me resizing their bangles. For free...) Thank you so much and I look forward to making a wonderful personalized bangle for you!
