Description

I am not going to lie: I love TierraCast products and their designs. This bracelet was actually inspired by their Lazy ZigZag Bracelet. I simplified the design a bit, but I just love this piece and want one in every color!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  1. To begin, cut your leather into the following segments: (1) 14 inch piece and (2) 6-and-1/2 inch pieces.
  2. Align your cords so they follow this pattern: short piece, long piece, short piece. Make sure the 2 shorter pieces are aligned and the longer piece is 4-5 inches longer.
  3. Add your 10mm hammered barrel bead, making sure the ends of the shorter pieces of leather are flush with the edge of the bead and the longer piece is still protruding 4-5 inches out of the bead. Use flat nose pliers to gently crimp the barrel bead.
  4. String your hook so the smaller portion of it is on the protruding piece of leather. Fold the leather to form a small loop near the barrel bead. Wrap the end of the cord around the base of the loop and then tuck the end through to form a simple overhand knot. Cut excess cord. Apply a dab of Zap-a-Gap.
  5. Measure your leather 3/4 of an inch from the hammered barrel bead. Take strands 1 and 2 and add a 7mm barrel bead to both strands. Use your chain nose pliers to gently press the barrel bead into place.
  6. Measure 3/4 of an inch from the last barrel bead added. Take strands 2 and 3 and add a 7mm barrel bead to both strands. Use your chain nose pliers to gently crimp the bead in place.
  7. Continue to repeat steps 5 and 6 until you have added all 5 of your 7mm hammered barrel beads.
  8. Measure 3/4 of an inch from the last barrel bead added. Add your 10mm barrel bead to all 3 strands. Secure the barrel bead with your chain nose pliers. Cut the excess cording from the 2 shorter strands.
  9. With your longer strand, create a loop and tie a knot as you did in step 4. This loop will fit on the larger portion of your hook clasp and will serve as the closure.
