Flat Bangle 66B
1 in stock
Name : FLAT BANGLE 66B
Type : Resin Bangle
This resin bangle is a simple flat and round styled bangle, but what is special here, is that it is filled with pieces of wild silk cocoons. They have an interesting lace formation and are so different from the ones spun by domesticated Bombyx Mori silkworms. Another unique feature of these silk cocoons is that they are naturally gold in color. They sparkle under the light.
The wild silkworms that produce such a wonderful natural shell for their metamorphosis are called Cricula Trifenestrata. They eventually become silk moths. This moth species is native to places like India, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Sulawesi and Java.
The resin mixture that I’ve made essentially matches the color of these silk cocoons and does not mask their beauty. You can gaze at this beautiful material while wearing the bangle.
The beauty that this bangle exudes is subtle and muted. It does not scream for attention but when it catches someone’s attention, it can hold his/her attention and start a conversation.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BANGLE SIZE THAT SUITS YOU?
The best way to measure your palm is to use a cord or rope. Measure the size of your palm as per the diagram in the second last photo. Please note the 3 key areas where the cord/rope must touch when you do the measurement. These spots are where the bangle comes into contact the most when it is being slipped on. Mark the start and ending of your measurement on the cord/rope. Place it against the ruler and read your palm measurement in millimeters.
Some diagrams on the internet show this method of measurement using a measuring tape. Please note that the measuring tape is stiffer and often has metal ends. This will make your measurement less accurate.
I have included as the last photo, a list of palm measurements in millimeters and the corresponding bangle sizes. If you feel more comfortable wearing a looser bangle, simply choose a size larger than your actual bangle size.
If you are choosing a bangle that is your right size, you may sometimes experience difficulty slipping it onto your wrist. This is because there will be friction between your dry bare skin and the bangle. So, if you make your hand slippery, the bangle will easily move through without any friction. You can introduce a slippery layer between your bake skin and the bangle by placing your hand in a soft plastic bag or organza bag before slipping on the bangle. Alternatively, you can simply coat your hand with soapy water before slipping it on. You can also use lotion or oil, but it is a lot messier to clean up.
This bangle can be kept clean by simply washing it with mild soap after use. Keeping it in a bag separate from other jewelry will prevent scratches and prolong its beauty.
