Leather Bracelets

About this design:

All of these bracelets were made from scraps of very small leather which came from a couple of necklaces I made years ago. (Which looked bad bad bad haha) I had various toggles, connectors, scraps of chain, silver tone beads, silver tone wire, I think fresh water pearls, & aventurine. All stuff from my 10 year old attic stash which I finally unpacked in August.

I was just basically playing around trying new ideas. It had been a long time since I had made anything.


Small diameter leather scraps. 2 kinds of chain pieces. Silver colored wire. 12 Silver colored metal beads. 2 Silver colored oval connectors. 3 Silver colored toggle clasps. 4 large & 3 small jump rings. 8 fresh water pearls(?). 12 aventurine nuggets.
