The 8.5" measurement includes the clasp, but I can change the bracelet size (within reason) upon request for no extra charge.
If you would prefer a different knot pattern than the first photo, I can do that for you instead. I have a large amount of experience in making friendship bracelets and can learn new knot patterns quickly.
The seven day shipping estimate is because a package in the U.S. typically takes 2-4 days to arrive after the post office gets it and that will give me a couple days to obtain the supplies (even if I have to drive to a few stores) and actually make the bracelet.
