Spearmint Sugar Bracelet

Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Cut two pieces of leather, one approx. 70cm the other 100cm.

Step 2

Take the smaller piece and fold it in half, pin the fold to a surface, this is your base strand.

Step 3

Now you will need the longer piece, tie it to the base piece where the fold is, leaving enough space so that the loop can fit round one crystal. The inside of our loop measures approx. 1  1/2cm (15mm)

Step 4

Ensure these two longer strands are even, then wrap around the base strands, going over the base strands and then back under.

Step 5

Now thread a bead onto the right strand, and then use the left strand to thread through the same bead, so the threads have swapped sides. Pull tight. The beads will sit long ways.

Step 6

Wrap the outer cords around the base cord, going over the base strands and back under.

Step 7

Repeat step 5 and 6 until you’ve added all the beads. We have used 12, add more for a larger wrist.

Step 8

 To secure on your wrist take the loop from the beginning of the bracelet and hook it over the knot and end bead.
