Traditionally, "necklets" refer to tight-fitting necklaces or
fur wraps, but I'm using "necklet" as a combination necklace - bracelet to denote a necklace that
can be worn as a necklace or wrapped two or more times for a cool bracelet.
Most necklets are shorter necklaces (16" or under) that can be wrapped twice for a multistrand
7-8" bracelet. However, there are a couple longer necklaces (21"+) that may be wrapped 3x
or more for a relaxed bohemian look. There are also designs made of two bracelets or anklets that may
be connected together as a necklace or separately as bracelets.
When considering a necklet, it's important to consider your wrist size and a bracelet length that
feels comfortable. For example, if a 7" bracelet is comfortable, then necklaces of 14"-16"
length should be comfortable and not too loose when wrapped twice. If a 8" bracelet is comfortable,
necklaces of 16"-18" should work. I mention this because I assume an average bracelet length (7.5")
when listing candidates for double-wrap and multiple-wrap bracelets, and other necklaces in the site may be
better suited to your particular wrist size.
Last of the multi-use jewelry items are the open, rope length necklaces that feature a stringing material
like silk ribbon along with a small pendant. These can be wrapped as many times as needed for a terrific
wrap bracelet look.
