Project Description:

This project was one of those pieces that must have been divine inspiration because I have NO idea where I go the idea to do this, but it was so much fun! Weaving 2 pieces of 10mm flat leather through TierraCast links makes this fun and funky bracelet a very modern, stylish piece!

Instructions:


If you have never worked with leather before, you may want to watch the Hole Punch Tools video.
  1. Using your Little Cut tool, cut 2 pieces of flat leather measuring 7-and-1/2 inches each.
  2. Set your revolving hole punch tool to the smallest punch setting. Use this tool to make 2 holes at the end of each piece of leather. The holes should be as close to the end of the band as possible without threatening to tear or cut the ends. The holes should be even and equidistant from one another. Punch these holes at each end of both leather bands before you begin the project.
  3. Using 2 pair of chain nose pliers, open a jump ring. Attach it to a hole at the end of the flat leather then to the corresponding loop on your 4-strand slide lock clasp. Close the jump ring.
  4. Repeat step 3 until all four holes on your 2 pieces of leather are attached to the 4-strand slide lock clasp.
  5. Position your piece so the leather is top side up running vertically away from you (the clasp should be closest to you). Slide a ring onto both pieces. Make it so the piece of leather on the left goes under then over the ring while the piece of the leather on the right goes over then under the ring.
  6. Add your second ring. This time, the piece of leather on the left will go over then under the ring while the piece on the right goes under then over the ring.
  7. Add your third ring. The leather on the left will go under then over the ring. The leather on the right will go over then under the ring.
  8. Add your fourth ring. The leather on the left will go over then under the ring. The leather on the right will go under then over the right.
  9. Add your fifth ring. The leather on the left will go under then over the ring. The leather on the right will go over then under the ring.
  10. Repeat the process of opening jump rings and attaching them to holes in leather and then to corresponding loops on the slide lock clasp to complete the piece.
