Braided and Beaded Leather Bracelet
Created by Denise Galloway
Okay, I admit it. I am completely addicted to leather. This is the forth leather tutorial, and there are so many more ideas rolling around in my head!
This exciting tutorial in my leather series features a braided center from which you will bead around, creating a fabulous bracelet that can include 2, 4 or 6 rows of beads. The possibilities are endless! I show you how to create the basic bracelet from start to finish, and I include many variations to keep you entertained. Bracelet closes with a button (shank style). Materials listed below will make one bracelet up to 8 inches long. Width will depend on the size of beads you use and how many rows. Some of mine can be almost 2 inches wide!
At the end of the tutorial I include a suppliers section so you know all the vendors I purchase from.
PDF file will be sent via email within 48 hours of purchase....usually much sooner!

• 3 sections of .5mm Greek style leather, each 4 feet in length
• Nymo thread - size D - color to match leather
• Seed beads – size 6/o or 8/o are easier!
• Czech glass or semi precious beads -rondelles or round beads work best for your first try... I am using 5mm faceted fire polish for the tutorial.
• Button with large shank
• Glue that dries clear
• sharp scissors
