Project Description:

I love simple bracelets that are good for layering, and I thought this new mother of pearl connector was just gorgeous. You can use any color of 1mm round leather that you want and pair it with whatever connector floats your boat! Around 25mm in width is a good size focal for this project. You can either use a crimp end and hook end or two crimp ends and use jump rings to add a clasp of your choosing.

Instructions:
  1. To make this project, you need to know how to make a lark's head knot. It's easy, but if you have never done it before, a video is very helpful. For help on making this kind of knot, check out our Basic Knots Video. For help attaching crimp ends, check out our Crimp Ends Video.
  2. Cut 4 pieces of 1mm leather. I recommend cutting each piece to 8 inches if you would like to end with a bracelet that is 7 inches in length. Note however, that your pieces will need to be shorter to account for a toggle, if you choose to use one instead of a crimp end and crimp hook. A good tip is to start with a little extra leather because you can always trim it later.
  3. Holding two pieces together, make a lark's head knot around the connector. Repeat on the other side.
  4. Add a crimp end to one side and a crimp hook to the other. Or, add a crimp end to both sides and use jump rings to attach a clasp.
