Awesome Leather Cord Bracelet Tutorials

By on Monday, April 29, 2013 4 Comments

Bold leather bracelets are a hot trend.  So here are some awesome leather cord bracelets to get your creative juices going.


Pam Leach's Forget Me Not Blossom bracelet tutorial on Beads Direct is simple but stunning as the bloom is formed by threading mounted crystals onto 3 cords.  You don't have to use crystals either - large hole beads will work too.

Using more than one cord is what makes all these bracelets eye-catching. Claire Humpherson's Luxe Owl leather cord bracelet tutorial shows how a gorgeous focal charm can set these bracelets off.


Bead frames are great findings to use.   Instead of using them to enclose beads, consider this clever leather cord bracelet video tutorial which weaves in and out of several frames with a bit of knotting.


Large metal rings are good alternatives to bead frames.  There are so many different kinds available out there.

The clasps used in the above tutorials are all designed for leather jewelry such as the Regaliz line.
