Endless Leather's $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway

By on Monday, June 17, 2013 105 Comments

Leather is always popular but a hot trend these days is the stylish European leather bracelet.  Think Regaliz™ and you'll know what I mean. Need a supplier?  Then check out the German based international supplier, Endless Leather.  They have a huge range of leather types and styles -  flat, round, stitched, braided and in many different colors - as well as fabulous leather lace.



They supply individual crafters and artisans as well as small and large businesses. They offer graduated discounted prices for larger orders.  They ship worldwide and cater to 3 different currencies - US$, £ and €.


Endless Leather sent me some of their strass (crystal) embellished lace leather and assorted findings for review.  I made a couple of bracelets and a pair of earrings.


The first thing I did was to prepare the leather lace for a simple bracelet much like I did with the Regaliz™ bracelets I made before.

The end strass had to be removed so that the flat leather could fit snugly inside the leather findings. That's when I realized how well made these are. These crystals really stay put! It took a sharp awl and some manouvering to lever out a crystal.


The rivet cup it sat in was extremely difficult to remove so I left it and just flattened it down with my pliers.


After that, it was simply a case of adding some Super New Glue (not the kind you get in the store) to the leather ends and inserting firmly into the cord ends.  Super New Glue is amazingly good and my glue of choice now.



 I added some Swarvoski crystals as charms and the bracelet is done!


The downside is the strass leather lace is expensive compared to regular leather lace.  The approximate cost of the length I used is $7.  But on the plus side, the technique is really easy so where you will save is time.

I also made a matching pair of earrings and an adjustable multi-strand bracelet (I just had to use that gold tone clasp!).  The tutorials for these will appear later this week.

  4. This is really great I love leather and have been dying to work with it. But have been hard pressed to find quality leather that would be worth purchasing and working on. Most of the stores in this area have the basic bulk leather that is just plain junk and not suitable in my opinion to be used in making jewelry. Thank you for another really great site where I can obtain more quality material for making jewelry! You are the best! Aileen Dodge.
