Ok, here’s the real problem with having teeny wrists. Nothing fits on them! ?? It’s quite frustrating when you find the cutest little bracelets and watches but they are so lose. Well I don’t have the solution for all the bracelets in the world but I do have a solution for Pura Vida Bracelets.
How to Shorten Pura Vida Bracelets
Size It Up
So let’s talk about sizing. First you’ll have to see how much you can shorten your bracelet in order to still be able to get it on.
To do this, simply put on the bracelet and tighten. Slowly slide the ties until you can roll the bracelet off your hand. Don’t worry about it being a little tight because the new knots you make will move a little.
Now that you have your size, carefully slide the bracelet off your wrist. Now you can make two new overhand knots.
You want to make sure that your knots slide all the way down to the base of the bracelet slider thingy ?. Pull the bracelet like you were opening it to its full length and pull pretty tight. This will help tighten the knots and this is where your knot will move just a little. Don’t skip this step because you don’t want your knots to loosen after you have shortened the bracelet.
Now it’s time to commit yourself to your bracelet size. It might be a good idea so try and slip on your bracelet one more time before you cut off the old length.
Once you’re ready to commit, cut just above the new knots. You should have a little end sticking out.
Burn Baby, Burn
Last step of this tough process, I promise ?.
That little end sticking out? Burn it with a lighter but only to the knot. Then give it a little tap with your finger to help it cool and set. And that’s it! You’re ready to rock your Pura Vida bracelets on your teeny little wrist.
And there you have it! Now you can wear those pretty Pura Vida bracelets without all the annoying long strings hanging all over the place. ???
I hope you try this out for yourself! It’s a game changer and you’ll be wishing you did this earlier.
