Large is 70mm diameter/ 22cm circumference
SO HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS THE BEST SIZE BANGLE FOR YOU?
The 2 best ways to measure are:
1) Measure an existing, well-fitting bangle
This is the easiest option – just find a bangle that fits you well, and measure the internal diameter (across from North to South straight through the middle of the bangle). Make sure it’s the inside of bangle you measure, don’t reach to the outer edge of the bangle. Then choose the nearest size (bigger) from the choices above.
2) Measuring your hand with a tape
You’ll need a measuring tape, or piece of string.
Bend your thumb as far as possible into your hand. The kind of position you would put your hand into if you were putting a bangle on, with the thumb reaching toward the little finger.
Then wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your hand. Keep the tape tight, it shouldn’t be loose – we are looking to get a measurement of the smallest you can make your wrist. It’s always so tempting to leave a bit of wiggle room when measuring, but you don’t want to do that!
Make a note of the size, or mark the string and measure against a ruler.
This measurement gives you the circumference (see the size guides above).
The LOVEbomb Story - from destruction to reconstruction.
1964 – 1973 Laos
Two million tons of ordnance were dropped on Laos during 580,000 bombing missions.
That’s 1 B-52 plane load of bombs.
Every 8 minutes – 24 hours a day – for 9 years.
Laos is one of the most heavily bombed country per capita in history.
At the current rate of removal, it will take an estimated 800 years to clear all unexploded ordnance.
These startling facts were the driving force in the Sacred by Design quest to help change.
BEAUTY FROM UGLINESS AND A MESSAGE OF PEACE
From the heart of Laos, LOVEbomb jewellery is cast from melted bomb fragments, in wood and ash moulds.
Upcycled from safely sourced bomb scraps by artisans in Laos and made under Fair Trade conditions, each piece serves as a peaceful reminder of destruction, reconstruction and a hopeful future.
Each LOVEbomb product sold assists with safe land clearance and supports the artisans to provide for their families and village development.
