Over and Under Leather Bracelet Project

This buckle clasp is one of my favorites. You can use it to make a simple 4-stranded bracelet design using 2mm round leather cording, but I wanted to play a little and give the cords a braided look. It's so much fun, I couldn't stop with just one!

  • Cut your leather so you have 4 strands measuring about 8 inches each. If using 2 different colors, you will want two 8 inch pieces of each color.
  • Apply a dab of Zap-a-Gap inside the opening of one end of the clasp. Put your 4 strands into the opening. If using 2 colors, you will want one color to be the 2 center strands and one color to be the 2 outside strands. Allow a few minutes dry time.
  • Tape the end of the clasp that contains the leather strands to your desk or work space.
  • Take the 2 outside strands over the 2 center strands then under the 2 center strands. Continue to repeat this process until you have about 5-and-a-half inches of "braided" leather. As you work, you will make sure you are keeping the 2 center strands straight and that you are keeping a good tension/spacing with the pieces that are crossing over and under.
  • When you are satisfied with your work at the 5-and-1/2 inch mark, apply a dab of Zap-a-Gap to the inside of the other end of the clasp. Use your Nipper tool to cut the leather, making sure all 4 strands are flush. Insert the 4 strands into the clasp. Allow a few minutes dry time.
