  1. When you make a bracelet with the large glass beads do you need to make it longer than a small bead bracelet in order for it to fit someone?

    1. Yes, with larger beads you might need to extend the length a bit.

      What you can also do is replace the toggle clasp with a chain extender and lobster clasp for more length option.
