Simple Leather Bracelets

About this design:

This simple design is great if you want to make a quick bracelet with those loose beads you have laying around. For this design, I slid on some large hole beads, tied knots on either side to secure, and finished with glue-in cord ends. I also added some charms to the clasp for extra sparkle.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Leather Cord
  • Large Hole Beads
  • Glue-In Cord Ends
  • Super Glue
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Jump Rings
  • Small Charms (optional)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide your beads to the center of the leather cord and tie a knot on either side to secure. Drop a small amount of glue into the cord end and slide the end of the leather cord in. After it has dried, use jump rings to attach the lobster clasp & charms.
