Childs Necklace Too Short
by: Anonymous

I made a Princess necklace for my neice's 4th birthday.

The beading was 8" because 6" looked way too small and then I added a clasp. The clasp broke which was a lucky accident.

I then used 6" of silk ribbon on each end, leaving plenty of length for tying it into a bow.

When I put it on her neck and tied it the actual length turned out to be about 12". If I had followed the recommended length of 6" for a four year old girl she would now be dead from strangulation.

She has a normal-to-skinny sized body, not overweight by any means. It fit comfortably and she wore it all day.

Thanks For the Help

The 6" was for a bracelet Not a necklace.

Thank you Barbara for the helpful information.

It is much appreciated!

Clasps Suggestions

For children a magnetic clasp is a good option. Also good for older adults or anyone with stiff joints.

Appreciate your putting together the size charts.
