A customer suggested that we do a video on leather wrap bracelets. Once I started learning how to do them, I got hooked. It's a very versatile and trendy stitch that you can do with practically any bead and any color of leather. Have fun and don't get tangled in your thread!
Excellent video. Showed exactly how to do each section and good camera work too. No fingers in the way THANKS

FYI - she does mention the size of the beads she is using at the beginning when she first starts string process... I think she did a great job explaining and went at a great pace that it was very easy to follow and pick up.... Great job

I use a clipboard,thread a button to the middle of leather & clamp. Take bottom of leather & clip to bottom of clipboard. Take a bic pen & slide it under leather at bottom to make it easier to weave. Tie 3 square knots w/ thread under leather at top, unclamp button & push up. Wrap thread 3x's around each cord so both ends in middle thread needle.

Wrap bracelet video
I'm a beginner and loved her video! I had just finished a 4-wrap and wished I had seen her video first! I could have made 3 in the time it took me to make just one;-) Easy to follow instructions... thanks!

I intend to make these bracelets with rat tail too.
I was wondering how you know where to start the loop for the wrapped loops since you need some "shank" to wrap the wire around. Is there a general rule of thumb?

I've found using a clipboard and the binder clip at the bottom to hold the cord is much easier than using a bead board. Also, I like to sew thru my beads one extra time before picking up a new bead to form a loop around both cords - seems to help keep the beads straight easier. Also, threading a button in the middle of the cord for a clasp works really well.

Great video on these bracelets, one suggestion, I had a hard time keeping the clips on the beading board, so I purchased a clip board at local office store, I got the long one,if you clip the end one and put 1 prone down, your thread won't hit it and get tangled...these work up really fast and have 2 going for granddaughter

So easy to make!
I love these bracelets! A few things I have noticed: (1) size 2mm or 4mm beads are easier to string, (2) if you use smaller beads (2mm or 4mm) you need more than 10 yards of thread (I used about 12 yards of thread for 2mm beads), (3) if you use 6mm or larger size beads, I recommend using a smaller bead for the first and last threaded bead.

Found another Blooper
Another blooper for Kelli Mc Coy.
I watched this video 3-4 times and it was never mentioned what size beads to use. I am new to beading, but I do know that size and shape matter in beading. Please help.
Thanks much and Kelli you are a joy.

wrap bracelet simple but tedious
I enjoyed your video on the wrap bracelet and she did a great job explaining, but I had some trouble with tangling. I cannot imagine doing a double length to wrap twice with twice the length of thread.

How many beads and what size?
I loved the video, it was very clear and easy to follow. The only issue I had was that I went to a local store and got my materials so I could have them right away to try it out for the first time and didnt know how many beads to buy and what size. I ended up with a good size, but not enough to finish the braclet and so I have to wait until tommrrow to go back to the store to get more. It''''s fun to use different colored thread too!! Awesome video, thank you for sharing!!

Loved the video
I have been trying to find a video on how to do this. Thank you very much. It is much easier to watch a video than try to do it from written instructions. I do have one question though. Why does my leather keep curling while adding the beads? I don''''t think I am pulling the tread too tight. Any suggestions? Mary- If your leather is curling while you are adding beads, perhaps you did not clamp it down to your bead board? This should hold it straight. :) -Kelly

Good job Kelly! I enjoyed watching it. It occured to me if a 4 or 6 mm bead was strung first, it might make it easier to get started, and not have the gap in the leather before the first 8 mm bead.
