African Inspired Bracelet 

Step 1

Wrap the leather around your wrist 3 times, so you know how long you need it to be. Cut the leather once you are happy with the length.


Step 2

Thread on 5 closed jumprings to the centre of the bracelet –apply glue to the first jumpring, then add a charm carrier and then another 5 jumprings and add glue to the very last jumpring.


Step 3

Thread on 14 closed jumprings and position them so they sit above to the right of the centre jumprings. (Please see picture below)

Carefully apply the glue in between the first and last jumping. Please use the glue sparingly as too much glue may result in it seeping out and ruining the look of the bracelet.



Step 4

Thread on 14 closed jumprings and position them so they sit below, to the left of the centre of the jumprings. (Please see picture below)

Glue the first and last jumpring


Step 5

When you’re happy with the positioning of your jumprings, separate your magnetic clasps, add glue and then attach to the ends of the leather. (You must separate your clasp before applying the glue)

Step 6

Attach your flat circular bead to the charm carrier with a jumpring.
