Funky Leather Wrap Bracelet


About this design:

My local bead shop has gotten in a new system of clasps in various styles, all meant to be used with leather. The possibilites are endless, as you can use just about any larger hole beads, colors of leather, or clasps. You can even make dangles, as I did here using pearls. It's up to you how many times you want to wrap it around your wrist! Or neck, for that matter!

Components:

Antique brass toggle clasp, various beads, pearls, leather cord.

    Very cool. Question: Will Lima Beads be carrying this clasp system?

    Ladies, thanks so much for all the comments! I have maybe half a dozen more of these clasps, and tons of leather, so there will be more show and tell!

    Klista, the bead shop is Buttons, Bangles, and Beads on St. Pete Beach, Fl. Their website is buttonsbanglesandbeads.com. It’s not really set up to make purchases online, but I think they do sell/ship items if you contact them. There are 2 or 3 other types of clasps meant for use with wider leather cord. The whole thing is pretty neat.
    What would be REALLY neat is if LB carried some large hole pearls!

    Oh yes, yes and yes! The bracelet is fantabulous, and the clasp is just totally outrageous! I so totally agree with you on the point of LB carrying some large hole pearls!

    I grew up on a farm, but never saw leather used like this. Very creative!
