I made this little bracelet from leather cord and small beads (mainly seed beads, but a few metal ones also). And it’s SO easy!
I wasn’t quite sure which beads would have large enough holes for my leather cord. Turns out, mainly just the seed beads, boo. But I still think the end result turned out pretty! I just wold have liked to incorporate some stones or pearls, too. :P
All you need to do is cut 4 – 6.5″ – 7″ lengths of cord, add a drop of jewelry glue to an end cap, and glue them into place.
Then, string some beads on. I went with a totally random pattern. Don’t fill the whole strand, you want the leather to show through.
When you like how it looks, just glue the other end cap on.
Attach your clasp… and seriously, that’s it! I told you it was easy! I had this bracelet done in about 20 minutes. It took me longer to haul things out and put them back away… ;)
