The solution is simple. Add a simple chain connecting both ends of the bracelet. The safety chain idea will work for most bracelets.
The multi-strand bracelet tutorial here features a strass leather length and chains. I received the strass leather cord from Endless Leather. There are other alternatives but I used ribbon crimps for the ends. Just slowly clamp down with flat nose pliers to ensure the "teeth" really bite into the leather.
Assemble appropriate lengths of chain with a couple findings for multi-strand necklaces and attach using jump rings.
The bracelet will still remain on the wearer's hand should the catch fail!
