My bracers showed up today. They’re GORGEOUS. Black leather with nickel hardware. Talk about the drool factor. They’re perfect! Except for one little problem…
They’re too big.
I could have cried when I, with my tiny little arms, tried on the bracers and realized that I couldn’t move my arm and felt like I had a cast on! I realize that they’re new leather and need to break in, but even then, the hand portion of the piece overshoots my knuckles by about 3 inches and the bracer itself is so long that I could easily foresee chafing in my future if I decide to wear them.
They’re also heavy, but that’s not so much of a problem.
In a panic, I looked up the seller on ebay. He doesn’t accept returns. So I already put in a frantic (yet super polite and appreciative!) message to him asking if he might consider reworking them so that they fit me better. I would understand if he wouldn’t. I know that he’s really busy. But I really don’t know what to do with these as they stand.
Either way, not a good day for bracers 😦
Finally beginning to put stuff up for sale on Etsy. Be sure to check it out!
