Step 1

Cut about 60cm of the 2mm brown leather and 40cm of the 1mm natural leather. Fold the 2mm brown leather in half so there is a loop at one end.

Step 2

Lay down the 2mm leather cord with a toothpick in between the fold at the looped end.

Step 3

Now using the 1 mm leather 2.5cm down from the top of the loop start wrapping the leather toward the loop making 5 wraps on both sides and one on one side (loosely), pass the rest of the leather through the middle of the wraps you have made.

Step 4

Pull on both ends of the wrapped leather, then remove the toothpick. With the toothpick removed, pull tightly on the end to secure it.

Step 5

Then thread on a bead between the 2 leather cords the weave over the one  cord and thread on another bead the weave under and another bead then go over till you have 17 beads weaved on.

Step 6

Then similar to step 3 and 4 again this time start straight from the end of your bead make the wave to you wrap one cord then weave around both 5-6 wraps, then pass the rest of the leather through the middle of the wraps you have made and over the last one and then back down again.

Step 7

 Pull the end of the wrapped leather, remove the toothpick, and pull tightly to secure it. Cut off the excess 1mm cord. Place a drop of fevi kwik on the ends of each wrap just for extra security.

Step 8

Knot the ends of the 2mm leather as that the loop can go over it but stay securely on, and your good to wear your new bracelet.
