  • Childrens Jewellery

    Hello

    I want to make some childrens jewellery- but not sure on sizing!

    Do you know the average size to make necklaces and bracelets?

    Any help would be great! Thank you in advance

    Hi..I think it depends on the age of the child. if you are aiming for younger children then I make 10inch necklaces on elastic and 4in bracelets, for near teenagers 16in chains and 5/6 inch bracelets.

    Hope this helps.

      I've just been making some children jewellery for friends children. I had the same dilema as you a few weeks ago about sizing so I got the ladies ordering to measure for me, it made life much easier.

      Don't know if it will help you but for a 10/11 year old they wanted a necklace approx 14.5" long, so I did 13.5" and added a 2" extension chain.

      Then for the 2 bracelets I have made they measured wrists and they are 17cm and 18cm again for the same age. I've made charm bracelets though so I've left a bit longer so they can be made bigger and smaller as needed.

      Probably no help what so ever to you but there you go!

      Cheers

              The littlies around here must be extra small then cos i do a good trade in 4" bracelets for them.
