The project was conceived by Uma Lakshman a dreamer, entrepreneur, techgeek, physicist, fashionista, and a compassionate world traveler. She has lived in Mumbai, Milwaukee WI (Marquette University), Sheboygan WI, Chicago IL, San Diego CA, Atlanta GA and also briefly atop a Himalayan peak.
This kickstarter project is a fashion revolution in the USA!!. Believe it or not, currently, there are no sizes for bangles aka bracelets in the USA. The bangles found in department stores are for the most all in one size. That size for the most are either too tight or fall off the hand. We are attempting to fix that flaw in the fashion accessories world.
Uma, who grew up in India, says like in India, bangles must fit right. Women don’t have to compromise with stretch bracelets and bangles with hinges and hooks.
For example, we met a professional woman, a banker, at an Art show. Her bangle size, as we figured out then was a XL (7.7 cms inner diameter), and she could never find bangles that fit her. We custom made a bangle that not only fit her right but also as per her choice of color. She was ecstatic. At the same show there was this woman with xxs small hand and she again could not believe that we had bangles that fit her.
Jewellery colors and patterns may come in and out of style and season. We attempt to open an online store for bangles, which will carry handmade bangles from every corner of the world, in every possible color at all times.
We are are working with a mathematician to bring the world’s first bangle algorithm, to measure your bangle size accurately, a facebook app that uses the algorithm, a video that shows you how to measure and use the app.
We are raising funds for the following :
To perfect the world’s first bangle algorithm –
Features of algorithm : It takes in three hand measurements, Knuckle to Knuckle , Palm Circumference and Wrist circumference. The app outputs the bangle size as in xxs thru xl sizes.
To create a facebook app that will help women all over the world to know their bangle size.
To beta test the app and algorithm to make sure it works right for all. To promote and raise awareness on social media.
We want to give away sample sizing bangle stacks for those who don’t have the time.
To create a stellar, colorful website ( With options to choose over 50 colors) that will promote all handmade bangles from across the world in every sizes , every material and all colors. It will also handle a unique way of creating bangle Stacks using a unique “Bangle Buffet “ UI.
We have partnered with a well known Metaphysicist to create a BangleColorTheory shop.
Eventually we hope to start the first Bangle Museum in USA.
So Lets save the world “One Bangle at a time”

Risks and challenges
Finding the right team to perfect the algorithm, create the facebook app and website, marketing it and finding channels for a wider audience and the funds required to accomplish it all, could all pose challenges. With my initial background in Information Technology I have engaged a stellar team of mathematician, developers, social media gurus, fashion bloggers to develop my facebook app and website and get the word out. I follow up with my team every day, we address challenges and find alternatives or outsource to other contractors. I have used social media to reach wider audiences. We are partnering with Branding specialists, fashion bloggers to find channels to quickly reach bigger audience. We are on fire with the can do attitude. Please join us in this revolutionary galactic journey in fashion. Thank you for your pledge.
