Nappa leather is the newest cord around and its popularity is on the increase. With so many different colours and patterns for you to choose from it really is a great material to work and experiment with. Nappa leather is a full grain leather and is commonly used when making high quality leather goods such as wallets and briefcases.
The great thing about this style of bracelet is that they are so simple to make! They are perfect for a beginner to jewellery making and they do not take long to create. Choose your leather, add charms if desired, then complete by gluing on a clasp. You can use as many rows as leather as you want, keep it simple with one loop, or use multiple rows for a great effect.
Charms can be added to the leather to create something that is really unique to your personality and style.

With this bracelet it is all about the leather! This gorgeous, soft brown snakeskin effect leather is perfect for making a statement and makes for a great bracelet that is all about the leather. The clasp is an important part of the bracelet; it needs to be able to hold the leather on the wrist securely and add to the look of the bracelet. Magnetic clasps are great for this as they are easy to fasten and add a professional touch.

For a different take on charms you can use a large bail and attach to all three rows of the leather.
