Red Leather Braided Bracelet

I love these braided leather bracelets!  They are so popular.  I created this bracelet using red leather cord.  It is 16" long and will wrap around most wrists two times.  I used the cutest metal heart button for the clasp.

Copper Links and Magnesite Bracelet

The links on this bracelet were created with 18 gauge round copper wire cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces.  I bent the wire in half and created a loop on each side.  I then hammered the center of the large bottom loop to give it a flatten look.  The links were aged (patina) using liver of sulfur.  The beads are Magnesite with a blueish green color.  They are a great compliment to the copper wire.

Orange Triple Wrap Ladder Bracelet

Created this ladder bracelet using my Knotty Do It All board.  Love this tool!  I used tan leather 2.0mm cord for the sides and brown S-lon for the stringer.  The beads are an orange/peach color barrel shaped glass.  I thought the wooden button made a great clasp.  The bracelet measures 24" in length so you can wrap it around your wrist 3 times.
