Beaded Leather Wrap Bracelet

About this design:

Inspired by Valentines Day, this wrap bracelet is the perfect accessory to make for yourself, or to give as a gift! I used enough leather cord to wrap around my wrist 3 times, and then slid on gemstone bead charms.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • Leather Cord 1.5mm
  • Headpins
  • Jump Rings
  • Cord Ends
  • Super Glue
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Czech Glass & Gemstones (2-3mm)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
Cut a piece of leather cord long enough to wrap around your wrist 3 times. My piece was about 20".
Step 2:
Using headpins, 2mm-3mm gemstones, and the pearl hearts, make the bead charms. Make enough to fill the bracelet, with about a 1/2" of space in between. I ended up making 42 charms. To ensure they stay in place, make sure the loops of the charms are pretty small.
  Step 3:
Slide the charms onto the leather cord. Using flat nose pliers, press the loops of the charms gently into the cord to make sure they stay in place. Finish by attaching the cord ends & lobster clasp.

    I usually don’t go in for trendy pieces…and I’ve never made a leather wrap bracelet…but this really appeals to me.
