Fancy chain, a bit of colorful leather or suede, and a fancy button are all you need to create this versatile bracelet design.
It couldn't be easier to create bold and stylish jewelry than with chain and leather on your side Our vintage reproduction chain easily allows for leather to wrap around the links in a fashionable way. Learn how to make these bracelets for a fun project you can complete in no time They're a great option for menswear.
Cut a length of 12mm antique silver-plated brass beaded vintage reproduction chain to fit your wrist, making sure to leave off approximately 1-1 1/4 inch for the clasp. You can use the EZ bracelet mini to accurately measure your bracelet. Please note that the lengths of the chain may vary slightly. We used 19 links per bracelet for each design and the bracelet sizes varied from 7-7 1/2 inches.
Center the antique silver small Celtic knot button on three feet of the 2mm natural light brown round leather. Secure the button to the leather with an overhand knot. Thread one end of the leather through the first link of chain. Whichever side you start with will be the side you should start with for the entire length of the bracelet.
Thread the other side of the leather through the same link so that it crosses over the top of the other strand within the link of the chain. Pull both ends tight, so that the chain is snug and centered with the button.
Continue threading both ends of the leather through each link until you reach the end of the chain. If you are using suede instead of leather, you will need to keep the suede flat as you wrap.
Secure the ends of the leather together with an overhand knot. Lave a gap large enough for the button to fit through and then tie another overhand knot. Trim the ends of the leather.
Repeat steps one through five to create all the bracelets pictured. Choose your own buttons and leather or suede to create your own take on this project
