* Lengths may vary depending on the size of your wrist (This is for a 5 ½ inch wrist). The items that are listed are for a double wrap bracelet. For a single or triple wrapped bracelet, divide the measurements by 2 and multiply by accordingly.

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Cut a 90cm length of leather and fold the cord in half to form a loop. The loop should be big enough to fit around the ceramic bead, which will act as the clasp. Run the end of the mcord upwards along the leather cord (towards the loop). Then wrap around the base of the loop at least 3-6 times, working downwards (away from the loop). This secures the waxed cord and will be the start of the bracelet.

Step 2

Place the ball chain along the leather with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Holding the ball chain against the leather cord, wrap the mcord around tightly between each ball.

Step 3

Continue wrapping whilst checking it fits around the wrist.

Step 4

When you have reached your desired length,  wrap the mcord around the leather strands 2-3 more times. Tie a knot with the cord and cut any excess ball chain. 

Step 5

Thread the ceramic bead through the 2 x2mm leather strands and tie a knot. Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!! Please do share with us your finished pieces in our Facebook Group. We would love to see how you did it Your Way.
