DIY Braided Leather Wrap Bracelet5:59 PM
Wrap bracelets and stacked bracelets are all the rage now if I'm correct. Well I LOVE them. Being the cheapo I am, I haven't bought any yet. Well I MADE some of my own and I love it. I got the clasp pieces and the leather at http://www.endlessleather.com/ .They have so many other cool options it just makes me want to create a whole bunch of jewelry and I'm not even a jewelry person lol.
So the other day this adorable little package showed up at my doorstep and I was overjoyed. Ok I actually had to pick it up at the post office because someone drove over our mailbox but I was still just as excited.
But actually how does one drive straight over a mailbox?
Anyways, check out those cool stamps. I am secretly a stamp person.
Here's the leather cording that I used. I put a bit of gorilla glue inside the clasp and simply slid the cord in and let it dry a few hours.
Ok let's ignore my arm hair but I'd like to put out a general warning that GORILLA GLUE EXPANDS. It created a great bond and my bracelet will not be breaking any time soon but I put a bit too much glue inside and it expanded outside of the cup. Thankfully though I was able to pick it all off. I (my dad) opened the ring of clip and then I (my dad) bent it around the end of the cup. I give major props to anyone who does DIY jewelry all the time! It's no joke and I actually struggled super hard to even see what I was doing. Good thing I (my dad) have reading glasses.
Here are the clasp pieces I used: end cups and clasp
I asked my mom to model my bracelet for me since it perfectly matched her outfit!
