Project Description:

I kinda forced myself out of my comfort zone on this one... I am typically a "less is more" thinker when it comes to design, but I really wanted to layer the ceramic and metal beads on licorice leather. I discovered that the possibilities are endless and that sometimes "more is more" is pretty fun too!

  2. Add your cherry caramel ceramic spacers in the following order: 7x15x18, 15x15x18, 7x15x18.
  3. Apply a dab of Zap-a-Gap 1 inch from the end of the licorice leather. Add your flower spacer. Allow a few minutes dry time.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side.
  5. Apply a dab of glue to the inside of one half of the clasp. Put the end of the licorice leather inside the clasp. Allow a few minutes dry time. Repeat on the other end.
