A simple, easy project, this bracelet works up in no time at all and is so easy to wear. I used distressed brown leather because I love blue and brown together, but you can use any color 5mm round leather your heart desires.

- To make a 7-and-1/2 inch bracelet, you will want to cut your leather so it measures just over 10 inches in length. If you want your bracelet larger or smaller than that, leave your leather 12 inches so you can adjust the length accordingly.
- Double the leather over so the ends line up perfectly. Slide your spacer on the leather and move it as far up the leather as it will go, leaving a loop to use as your closure.
- If you need to adjust the length of your leather, wrap the bracelet around your wrist to see how it is going to fit. Keep in mind that you will need to allow about 1/4 inch for the inside of the finding. Cut the leather to your desired length. If you have already cut your leather, apply a dab of Zap-a-Gap to the inside of the finding. Put both ends of the leather inside the finding. Allow a few minutes dry time.
