With mix-and-match charms, Pandora bracelets are a personalized accessory that can add one-of-a-kind beauty to any outfit. However, no matter how stunning the bracelet may be, it’s hard to enjoy the jewelry if it’s too small to wear comfortably. You can extend your Pandora bracelet at home and create a custom extension on the jewelry so that it fits your wrist exactly as desired.

Things You'll Need

Measure your wrist to better understand how much larger your Pandora bracelet needs to be. Wrap a tape measure around the widest part of your wrist. Take this measurement, then add .79 inches to the number. The total is the length your Pandora bracelet should be to fit properly.

Measure the bracelet extender chain to ensure it’s long enough to add the needed length to the bracelet. This chain must also be the same metal and color as your Pandora bracelet.

Open the clasp of the extender chain, and place it on the receiving ring of the bracelet, where the original clasp would usually be placed. Allow it to close around the ring.

Place the bracelet around your wrist. Grab the Pandora bracelet’s original clasp, and open it. Close it around one of the links of the extender chain that allows the bracelet to rest comfortably around your wrist. Jingle and move your wrist around to ensure this is the fit you desire. Count the number of chain links from the extender’s clasp, moving up until the link where the original clasp is connected. Remember this number so you know exactly how long the extender chain needs to be.

Remove the bracelet’s original clasp from the extender chain, and take off the bracelet. Use the wire cutter to snip away the excess links — the ones above the desired link, away from the extender’s clasp. Harder metals, such as titanium, probably can’t be cut through at home. This cutting process must be done by a jeweler with tools strong enough to pierce the material.

Leave the original clasp attached to the last link on the extender chain. Attach the extender’s clasp to the original receiving ring whenever you wear your bracelet.
