Why is the knot on my 4ocean bracelet so tight (and how do I loosen it)?Updated 7 months ago

Every 4ocean bracelet is handcrafted with an adjustable slipknot for size inclusivity and easy wear. 

Our skilled artisans know that these knots loosen over time with regular use, so they’re tied extra tight when you first get them.

You can break in your bracelet and loosen the knot by soaking it in warm water for a few minutes and repeatedly adjusting your bracelet to pull the two threads back and forth through the knot. 

To make the bracelet smaller, tug the two loose ends in opposite directions. To make the bracelet bigger, pinch the last bead on either side and pull in opposite directions.
