    Love this one too! Annnnnd, I have a question! I’ve been playing with cord and leather which is a new medium for me and am having trouble with finding a finishing method I like. The latest was end caps but I’m not excited about them. Any suggestions as to methods or tutorials??

    Love this bracelet, too!! For Gail: Dangles of string with tiny knots and a bead on the end looks very finished and polished. Leather is a little more tricky but you can always fold it over and do a wire or satin wrap.

    Gail if you are going to use a button clasp I like to make the button loop with seed beads. Knot all cords, divide into 2 sections, string seed.beads on both sections, test button for fit, knot again. On the ends of cord you can add bead dangles after knotting near ends, add beads, knot again. This is for waxed linen, hemp, s-lon.

    To get ideas on how to finish bracelets I google stuff & look on pinterest. I also look through the design gallery here. Best place for ideas are.the blogs of jewelry artists.
