Red is my favorite color and I love the vintage vibe and warmth of antique brass, so this bracelet seemed like a natural choice for me. I love the look, feel and fit of it - and the fact that it can be made in any color your heart desires!

Project


This project requires knowledge of punching holes in leather and setting rivets. If you are not familiar with these techniques, please watch the following videos: Hole Punch Tools and Rivet and Snap Setters.
  1. Cut a piece of flat leather measuring about 20 inches. Run one end of leather through the smallest hole in the TierraCast tribuckle finding. Fold the leather over so you have a half inch opening.
  2. Use a punch to make 2.5mm holes through both layers of leather. You will want your holes to be about 1/2 inch from the fold.
  3. Run a rivet post through the holes from the back. On the top side, cover the post with the rivet cap. Press the 2 together.
  4. Put the bottom of your rivet post on a bench block. Put the concave end of the rivet setter on the cap and strike with a hammer until the rivet is set.
  5. To wear this bracelet, you will wrap it around your wrist several times and run the end through the 2 larger openings on the tribuckle clasp. Leave as much of a tail as you are comfortable with.
