How to Make a Simple Beautiful Leather Bracelet

by Julia S.

Do you love those dainty bracelets that you can stack and mix and match?! Me too!!! Here is my super simple way to make your own!

Supplies

  • Thin leather cord in your choice of color
  • Small lobster clasps with jump ring attached
  • Beads of your choice
  • *if using metal beads, make sure they match clasp
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    There are lots of different colors in this thin leather cord. You should be able to find it at any craft store.

    Step 2

    These are lobster clasps with the jump rings attached to them. I am using rose gold.

    Step 3

    I also like using these clasps and sometimes I can find them for a cheaper price.

    Step 4

    Here are the "beads" I chose. (Also in rose gold)

    Step 5

    First get an estimate of your wrist size. Mine was about 7 inches.

    Step 6

    You are going to double the strand and tie knots in it...so you want to add a few inches (10) and then double it. I cut a total of 20 inches to give me room for error 😊

    Step 7

    Thread the cord through the jump ring on the clasp.

    Step 8

    Tie a knot to secure. Starts like so...

    Step 9

    Loop the clasp through...

    Step 10

    Ta da! Get the knot nice n close to the top.

    Step 11

    Thread your beads.

    Step 12

    Now measure again and see how big you want your bracelet.

    Step 13

    I like to make two knots (same as the one made with the clasp) so I can have two different sizes.

    Step 14

    Size #1

    Step 15

    Size #2

    Step 16

    There you go! Super easy! (Here I have 2 of them on)
