When it comes to sizing your wrist it can sometimes be difficult. There is a temptation to use a size you've been given in the past or measure a watch band. Even measuring your existing Nomadic Artistry bracelet can be tricky. Follow these tips to get the best fit.
Each piece is unique and special; every piece created and handcrafted by Augusta Anderson.
The leather is beautiful and because of the nature of leather, the color will change by deepening and becoming richer with time and wear. You will also see a change in the pewter; it will flatten and become shiny in places, forming a wonderful patina. This will vary greatly depending on the frequency you wear your piece and how you care for it.
The heavy gauge pieces are perfect for those who will wear their piece everyday and give it a lot of love. Time, for these pieces, creates a very deep "wear pattern". Examples are: Dori, Within, Tide, Dori Sing, One Rope, and Dagr, to name a few.
The fine gauge pieces, if worn everyday, will show the result of time and wear much quicker, simply because they are made with a fine gauge of pewter. Less alloy means quicker transformation.
Examples are: Big Drift, Trail in the Snow and Bobbie's Rose, to name a few.
Ask yourself how often you will wear your piece and the rigors you will put it through when choosing your bracelet
In order to maintain the life and beauty of your piece we advise you:
Your bracelet will fit tighter when new, but with wear it will stretch approximately 1/4 of an inch and mold beautifully to your wrist. Thereafter, it will maintain definition for years to come.
As your bracelet ages, it will take on a new life, becoming more beautiful. The pewter thread will flatten over time, creating a unique silver-like and shiny patina.
Depending on the size you ordered, wearing your Sami bracelet for sometime and the stretching that will take place, you may feel your bracelet is a bit too loose. In that case, I will downsize your bracelet free of charge within a year from the date of purchase. Please keep in mind that this isn't always possible, but if you would like me to try to adjust the length, feel free to contact me. (note: this is a mailing address only)
