    Step 1

    Gather your supplies. I already have my leather die cut.

    Step 2

    Give an iridescent medium to your Relics so they shine like motherofpearl

    Step 3

    The gold small piece of leather was threaded in the open work design

    Step 4

    I attached my Relics with needle and thread directly on the leather and secured with glass beads

    Step 5

    Next I threaded the mother of pearl disc beads also with the needle and thread

    Step 6

    Using a piercer I punched tiny holes to dangle beads from the cuff ends

    Step 7

    Using your plier secure your wire and chain. I added 3 different lengths for interest

    Step 8

    Continue piercing the leather to your liking I went with every other scallop. Then secure your beads

    Step 9

    Now you are ready to attach the matching top portion. I decided to glue this part

    Step 10

    Add your Relic focal piece!

    Step 11

    Enjoy your new bracelet!!!
