I love the lacey look of this bracelet!
Bracelets like these are fun to wear, and simple to make.
Here's how you do it!
1 large button with a shank or holes in the center.
The shank and holes must be able to have a 2mm piece of leather pass through the holes.
54 inches of 2mm leather.
Choose any color you like.
14 - 16 glass beads with 2mm holes.
Clear tacky glue
The leather should be 2mm. Anything smaller would not be strong enough to wear this bracelet repeatedly.
1) Fold the leather cord in half and thread the leather through the button holes or shank.
Tie a knot behind the button. Add a couple of drops of clear tacky glue.
Let dry for a couple of minutes.
Add a bead to each side of the leather.
Using your finger as a guide, insert your finger in the leather and tie a loose knot above your finger.
I used 14 - 16 beads per bracelet.
If you have a thicker wrist, be sure to cut your leather longer and have more beads available to use.
Try the bracelet on your wrist after 12 beads. If you need to add more beads, this is the time to do it.
After the last knot, leave a space so that the button will fit through. Tie a knot on the other end of the opening.
Add some clear tacky glue to this knot.
Trim the ends of the leather to a length that you like.
See, what I mean?
Here are some more samples.
You can even make these long enough to be an ankle bracelet!
I love mine!!!
