Description

I have made this piece to sell before, but have never shared the design. It's really fun and I love the fact that the color choices are endless!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  • Cut your leather into two 12 inch pieces. Cut your chain so you have a 6 inch piece and two 1 link pieces of chain.
  • Run one piece of leather through the second to last link on your 6 inch piece of chain. Run the other piece of leather through the same link, but so it is coming out in the opposite direction.
  • Run a piece of leather through the last link (the one right next to the link with leather). Run the other piece of leather through the same link but in an opposite direction. Make sure each piece of leather protruding from the last link has a 3 inch tail. Leave tail pieces aside for now (this is where you will attach the single link and your clasp later).
  • Run a piece of leather through the next link on the 6 inch piece of chain. Run the other piece through the same link but in an opposite direction.
  • Repeat step 4 until you have reached the end of the 6 inch piece of chain.
  • Run one piece of leather through the 1 link piece of chain you cut in step 1. Run the other piece through the same link but in an opposite direction. Bring both pieces of leather around to the same side. Tie a single knot. (Make sure this single knot is between the single link and the 6 inch piece of chain. You want the single link to lay right.) Bring both pieces of leather around to the opposite side and tie another single knot. Cut the excess leather with your Nipper tool. Apply a dab of glue to each end you cut.
  • Repeat step 6 on the 3 inch tails you left in step 3.
  • Using 2 pair of chain nose pliers, open a jump ring. Attach it to the loop on one half of the toggle clasp then to a single link at the end of the bracelet. Close the jump ring.
  • Repeat step at the other end to complete the bracelet.
