Simple Leather Bracelet - Jewellery Making Tutorial

Designed by: Kasia

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating:

We invite you to follow this gorgeous tutorial by Kasia. Using Leather Cords and Decorative Beads, it is easy make.... and it's even easier to personalise!
You could change the diameter of the cords to incorporate more delicate or larger beads, or perhaps change the colour of the Leather? We would love to see which beads you choose to make it your own <3

Required materials:

  • Leather Cord  - 3mm; about 44cm
  • Leather Cord  - 2mm; approx. 22cm
  • Cord End with Extension & Clasp  - 1 set - Cord end hole needs to be large enough to accommodate all 3 strands of leather (8mm)
  • Decorative Beads - 2 beads - ensure the hole is big enough for your chosen leather (min 2mm)
  • Spacer Beads  -  3 pcs. Again, ensure the hole is big enough for your chosen leather (min 2mm)
  • Slider Beads  - 2 pcs - Hole needs to be large enough to accommodate all 3 strands of leather (min 8mm)

Remember that the design is primarily used to learn the technique and the bracelet shown here is for your inspiration. Why not experiment with the materials to get a completely different, unique effect? Enjoy :)

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

Step 1

From 2mm cord, cut a length matching the circumfrace of your wrist, plus and additional 2cm. Cut 2 pieces of 3mm cord to the same length.
Pass all three cords through a Slider Bead and move this bead to about 4 cm from the ends of the straps.

TIP: Cut the cord diagonally to form a point. This will make it easier to thread through the holes of the beads if they are a bit tight.

Step 1

Step 2

Arrange the straps so that the 2mm is between the 3mm ones. On the middle, 2mm strap, thread a Seamless Round Bead, a Decorative Bead, a Seamless Round, a Decorative Bead and a Seamless Round.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Pass all three cords through another Slider Bead.

Step 1

Step 4

Align all of the beads and sliders to ensure symmetry. Glue the ends of the Leather Cords into the cord ends on both sides of the bracelet.

Step 1

Step 5

Once the glue is completely dry (please allow at least 24 hours), your bracelet is ready to wear and enjoy.
