|Finished Leather and Rhinestone Bracelet|
Leather and Rhinestone Bracelet
Skill Level: Easy
Time: Approximately 1 hour
Things You'll Need:
2 18 inch leather cords with magnetic clasps
1 26 in length of rhinestone chain
1 ball waxed black linen (thin)
|Things you will need (2 leather cords, 26" rhinestone chain, waxed black linen)|
Next you will need to tie the waxed linen around one end of the rhinestone chain and the leather cord, making sure that the magnetic clasp is at the middle of the rhinestone chain. Once you have tied a knot you will hold the loose piece of linen from the knot against the back of the cord, and you will then start wrapping the linen around the chain and the cord. You want to make sure that you are wrapping that loose between the linen and the cord, so that it is hidden by the linen.
|Wrapping linen around leather cord and rhinestone chain.|
You will wrap the linen 3 wraps in between each rhinestone, and then move on to the next section of rhinestone.
Do this all the way to the end of the rhinestones, taking care that the linen stays secure around the magnetic clasps. You want to make sure that it also does not go in between the clasps in the center.
As you get to the last 3 rhinestones you will only wrap once in between these links, and when you get to the last rhinestone you will tie a knot. Then you will wrap the linen going back over the last 2 sets of spaces and tie another knot. I would make a double know in both places.
Once you finish that last knot you can then cut the linen.
|Bracelet wrapped around my wrist 5 times.|
Depending on the size of your wrist this Leather and Rhinestone Bracelet will wrap around your wrist four to five times.
I would love to hear how your bracelet comes out, and what ideas you have for bracelets.
