Do you find you have go – to accessories? Things you tend to wear over and over? I definitely do!
During the summer I tend to gravitate towards bracelets. (I think it’s mainly because in all this humidity and heat I’m not loving necklaces.) :)
This sweet bracelet is the perfect summer accessory – you can dress it up with any color of embroidery floss and the combination of the thread and leather makes a stylish bracelet you can wear with any outfit.
This is only takes about a half hour – ready for the easy tutorial?
- 22″ of 2mm leather cording
- 5 curved tubes designed to fit over 2mm cording
- variegated pearl embroidery thread – I used DMC 4040
- Cording end caps with hook and eye
- E-6000 Glue
Begin by tying a small knot in your thread around the metal tube. Run a small bead of glue along the underside of the tube.
Wrap the metal tube with the floss until you have it covered. Tie a knot at the other end of the floss.
Cover the knot at the end with glue and trim the end of the thread. Repeat for the other four metal tubes.
Once your tubes are all wrapped, feed them onto the leather cording. Glue the end caps on each end of the cording.
To wear the bracelet wrap it around your wrist three times and hook the ends together. Super simple!
Now you have a super cute new accessory that is perfect for layering!
This pretty Leather Rhinestone Bracelet is so cute paired with the thread and leather wrap bracelet. It’s another easy project!
I hope you give it a try!

I love it! Layering jewelry is so “in” right now, right along with small gold accents when it comes to summer looks (I’m a closet fashionista) and this bracelet is BEAUTIFUL. Well done.
