Hi all!

Just wondering..is there anyway to shorten a bracelet once it's already been crimped and toggled? Is there any clever way to do that? ummm..not that's its happened to me exactly...no...no...it was a FRIEND of mine who made the bracelet too long.... :evil:

any brilliant thoughts from brilliant minds?

(I know I can re-string - I am, of course, looking for the easier way out)

How did you crimp? One done with flat pliers is fairly easy to remove.

I did it with crimpers....AND cut the thread short.... :(

You could chop it off right at the crimp, add another crimp with as little cord as possible, and then create a decorative metal link to lengthen a bit if you had to make it too short. That's my only guess.

The easiest way out is to tell your "friend" to eat lots and lots of donuts until her wrist gets big enough that there is no need to shorten the bracelet. Fiona
