Magical Shape Shifter
A mythological animal of Chinese origin, and a member of the NAGA (Sanskrit) family of serpentine creatures who protect Buddhism. Japan's dragon lore comes predominantly from China. Asian dragons are rarely depicted as malevolent. Although fearsome and powerful, dragons are equally considered just, benevolent, and the bringers of wealth and good fortune. The dragon is also considered a shape shifter who can assume human form and mate with people.

To measure your wrist, use a string or anything flexible, wrap it around your wrist and measure how long it is. After that, add 2-3cm (depending on how tight you would like it) to your wrist diameter and the bracelet should fit perfect. We recommend closer to 2cm for small bead bracelets and 3cm for large bead bracelets due to the diameter of the beads.
Also, the clasp of the bracelet can be moved over one bead at a time to help the fit.
