2-PIECE BANGLE CORE / WIDE WIDTH
This item is for one copper bangle core for wood widths of 0.865". These cores are made from pure copper seamless tubing, having a 2.43", 2.55" or 2.67" inside diameter for woman's size 7.5, 8 or 8.5 bangle. Finished bangle width is 1.03". Use these bangle cores to create fabulous wood, glass or beaded bangles.
*** NOTE *** Wide bangle cores will feel smaller when trying them on due to the width, for this reason it is advisable to go to the next larger size if the fit is snug with the MID width cores we sell.
Use your own wood blanks or choose from a selection of stabilized wood bangle blanks available on our website. Wide wood blanks are available on the Resin Cast Blanks page, these will be noted with the words "WIDE".
Bangle cores are sized based on the inside diameter of the metal bangle, and these diameters are largely driven by commercial availability of seamless tubing. As an example, a 2.55" ID bangle core will have an inside perimeter of 8.007" (2.55 times 3.14 (pi) = 8.007), thus it is a "woman's size 8". However, an inside diameter of 2.32" actually has a perimeter of 7.28". So we round a little to avoid confusion. Here are the actual diameters and perimeters (or size):
2.32" ID = 7.28" perimeter (Size 7)
2.43" ID = 7.63" perimeter (Size 7.5)
2.55" ID = 8.01" perimeter (Size 8)
2.67" ID = 8.38" perimeter (Size 8.5)
Even though the ID's do not vary much, the fit on a woman's wrist will be noticeable for each change in size. Size 8 is the industry standard for most commercially available bangles and bracelets.
