beaded leather wrap bracelet

As I mention in the video this bracelet design has been floating around the internet for quite some time. I’ve seen it made with leather cord, suede strips, silk cord, colored S-lon cord, hemp and even waxed linen twine.

Some of those finer materials might work out better for finding bead with holes large enough for them to pass through, but I like the look of the heavier cord.

Although this project uses quite a few beads, it really didn’t take all that long to put together.

Enjoy the video and happy creating!

Materials:

Tools:

  • scissors
  • E6000 glue
  • toothpick

Directions:

  1. Slide the two ends of leather cord through either the button or one piece of the toggle clasp. Center the button or clasp on the lengths of cord bringing all four ends together. Tie an overhand knot with all four cords just below the button or clasp.
  2. Onto each cord slide beads knotting the cord in between the beads. Continue to add beads and knots onto the cord until it will wrap around your wrist twice.
  3.  Use all four cords to tie an overhand knot. Apply a dab of E6000 glue to the knot; once dry trim away two of the cords.
  4. If using the button for closure don’t trim away two of the cords, but make a loop with the cords just large enough to fit over the button and tie the four cords in an overhand knot just below the previous knot. Add glue and trim the cords.
  5. Slide a cord through other half of your toggle closure and tie both cords in a knot above closure. Apply glue to this knot as well and trim the cords at an angle.

  1. I have a problem because after I double the cord, 4 cords, I have so much cord left over. It leaves me with approximately 5 feet of cord and goes round the wrist like 6 times. what did I do wrong/???

    1. It’s hard to say, Michele, without seeing the project. Do you have a very small wrist? Or perhaps you only used a few beads so you don’t have as many knots taking up the extra cord?
