      if they're real jewellery, you can bring them to the shop for alteration. it's part of after sales service.

        Are your bracelets strung? Meaning the type with beads/charms/etc on an elastic band/wire/string? These can be re-strung at some craft shops selling similar items.

        If they are linked like real jewellery, best bet is a jeweller. HTH!

          Mine are bought off ASOS .. which are a tad too big for me. One of the braclet I'm intending to alter is this . Do you gals think it can be done? And roughly around how much for those who have alter their braclets before?

            From the picture, it looks like the links in the chain are soldered so there are no breaks in each link to open up and take out some links to shorten.

            If DIY, you can use a strong pair of wire cutters to cut off the link where one of the clasps has been attached and measure how much extra bracelet you can spare and cut off the link at the point you want to shorten. Then simply join back the clasp to the new ending of the chain with a jump ring (an "openable" bendable circle of wire).

            presto! new bracelet!

              I used to work in such areas part time. I have learnt how to alter bracelets, necklace, etc from my work place. If I am not wrong, it can be altered. Snap the chain and recombine it with a ring. You could try this place "Crafts Jewellery" at Tampines Mall or Parco Bugis. If I am not wrong, they might charge you $2 or slightly more.

                    miracle: try Jo's Craft located at Plaza Singapura. The alteration should be a dollar or two.

                      Jo's craft offers alteration at such a cheap price? I never knew. it'll be useful info for the future yay cuz I can never wear bracelets unless I alter some links off due to my small wrist.
