Stanley Manygoats

Stanley Manygoats

     Stanley Manygoats was born on September 10, 1976 in the small town of Tohatchi.  He is the youngest of 6 children.  His older brothers taught him the art of inlay at a young age.  Stanley caught on quickly, and was hired by the wonderful Navajo artist Ray Tracy where he worked for over 10 years.  Before going out on his own, he also worked for Supersmith Jewelers in Gallup, New Mexico.

     Stanley is a humble man from a wonderful family. His mother wove rugs at night and worked in the day to provide a better life for her children.  He so admired her and is working hard as well for his 4 children.  The oldest daughter is a freshman in college studying to work for the FBI, she is the first to attend college from his family.  As a man raised without electricity and only kerosene lamps for light and no indoor plumbing, he is so appreciative of all he has today and the opportunities his children have.   In his spare time he enjoys fishing and playing with his children.





Sizing

Although the best way to test the size and fit of a piece of jewelry is to try it on in the store, we know that is not always an option. In an effort to help you choose the piece that is right for you, we have included measurements of each piece on the website. Here is how our measurements are defined:

Bracelets

Finding the right size bracelet for your wrist has always been a tricky endeavor, since, unlike rings, there isn't a standardized, universal sizing chart for wrist size. One reason for this is that we all have different shaped wrists, some of us have round wrists, while others have more oval. Bracelets, like wrists, also have different shapes.

So, while bracelet sizing will never be an exact science, we've done what we can to ensure the greatest chance of a comfortable fit. The best thing you can do if you don't know your wrist size is to take a soft measuring tape and loosely measure the circumference of your wrist at the point you plan on wearing it. Try not to have the measuring tape dig into your skin, as this will result in a smaller than ideal size. Once you have the circumference of your wrist, compare it to the chart below to find the correct bracelet size. If your wrist measures in-between two sizes, we recommend rounding up to the larger size. (ie: if your wrist measures 6.375"- you should shop for size "Medium" bracelets.

You may want to drill down further on the bracelet sizing to make sure the cuff is a comfortable fit. You will notice on our website that we generally list four measurements for bracelets:

Keep in mind that certain bracelets can be adjusted slightly to fit your wrist, but those with inlay or stones all the way around will be damaged if bent. In any case, it is always best to check with with us to see if a particular bracelet is adjustable, and always have a professional jewelry perform the adjustment.

Lastly, have no fear! If you order a bracelet that doesn't fit, send it back for one that does! We want this to be a positive experience, you should never wear something that isn't 100% comfortable. More on our return policy here.

Buckles

Sizing belt buckles is pretty straightforward. The height and width are self-explanatory, and the belt width describes the maximum belt width the buckle will fit on.

Concha Belts

We try to include the height and width for the conchas, as well as the buckle (if different), and the width of the belt they are on. The length of the concha belts is less important, because these belts are often made quite long to accommodate many waist sizes, and then can be shortened to fit the wearer. If you are concerned whether or not a belt will fit you, just ask.
