Leather Infinity Bracelet

I had just a few minutes to play with some fun new components I got from Goody Beads last night.  I spotted this gorgeous infinity connector on their site, and I could not wait to turn it into a lovely, simple bracelet.  This is a great 10-minute project, and it’s perfect for something like Valentine’s Day as a gift or just your own handmade accessory.

I’m going to leave links to the components I used for this bracelet below because they are pretty specific if you’re hoping to replicate this look.  I don’t make commission on any sales if you decide to buy, though Goody Beads did provide me with free product to share this tutorial with you today.

What you will need:

Cut two lengths of leather 5 to 5.5 inches long.  (It’s a smart idea to cut longer to start – you can always trim it down!)  If you have a larger clasp, you can get away with a shorter length of leather.

Run your cord through one of the connector holes, doubling your leather.  Slide a bead onto both cords.  It will be a snug fit.  Do this on both sides.

Finish your ends by gluing or crimping your end caps onto each end.  I crimped mine.

Then, just attach your clasp with jump rings, and it’s ready for wear or for gifting!  I just love quick and easy jewelry projects like this, and the infinity connector is a beautiful quality focal piece.

    I love this…I’ve bought supplies to make several as gifts but I can’t seem to get the beads onto the leather. Do you have any tips to make this easier? Thank you. :)

    • Hi Christine! They are a snug fit. That’s what keeps it together, once you get them on, they won’t move much – they kind of act like a stopper to keep your cords in place without a knot. I had good luck putting one cord first, and then the other. Go slowly and gently so you don’t scratch up the leather too much.

      If you’re not liking how it’s coming together, you can also switch to some 1.3mm leather. It won’t be as thick, but it will still be a similar look. The beads will be much looser on that which you may prefer. I like it to be tight but that’s just me… but that’s the great thing about handmade – you can make it how you like it.
