This style of bracelet is a great one-size-fits-all design. OK, so technically the same bracelet size won't fit both a petite 6-year-old and a Samoan warrior, but odds are that you can determine one or 2 standard sizes that nicely fit you, and they'll also fit 90% of the teen and adult bracelet-lovers that you meet.
You can also create this design at a variety of price-points by switching metals: copper, sterling silver, gold-fill, silver-fill and raw brass are all great options. Have fun selecting beads and charms -- both new and from your stash -- for these bracelets!
