Flowers with a Twist

About this design:

I'm still working with leather cords and their components. I asked to copy this particular design from a vendor which I purchase my leather cords and findings. This vendor makes her bracelets utilizing the latest in whatever she discovers and then creates in order to show what can be done. I asked if I could make my own bracelet using her idea. She was very gracious and I am very appreciative of her generosity in this endeavor. So, I wanted to make myself a bracelet with the latest in a patterned leather cord. This floral is very nice for spring and summer wear. I found another vendor who has the largest selection of round leather cord matching as close as I could to the floral design. It worked out well.


The main leather strap is 10mm with a soft floral pattern with blues evident in the flowers. The silver slider findings hold 2mm round leather cord which is weaved or twisted on both sides of the leather strap. The clasp is a 15mm magnetic one to hold everything together along with super glue for leather. I have another piece of this floral leather strap in the colors of olive, teal and purple. I will be making the same bracelet with a berry color that matches the purple with the same silver sliders and a different 15mm magnetic clasp. I see that Lima has the cork cords. Fantastic !!! This is the new leather sensation right now. Great colors and designs !!!!
