What you need
- Leather (thin)
- Tapestry needle and wax thread
- Ruler and pen
- 24 gauge wire ring
- Leather glue
Step-1: Decide the thickness for your bracelet, mine is 1 inch. The ring should be slightly larger than the bracelet’s thickness. Also cut out a small strip of leather for the lock system. You will need these 3 items to make the bracelet.
Step-2: Place the small leather strip on a flat surface by facing its wrong side up and then place the large leather piece horizontally by levelling it’s edge with the small strip. Fold the small piece into a loop and do a cross stitch to attach the folded sides of the small piece with the edge of the large piece.
Step-3: Insert the ring into the loop and apply glue on the middle part of the loop to secure the ring. I used a clothes pin to hold the middle part while the glue dried.
Step-4: Once the glue is dry wrap the bracelet around your wrist. Insert the leather through the open side of the ring from downwards, pull and again take it through the other side of the ring, tighten it.
