I love combining different textures in jewelry – I think it makes pieces so fun! You can really mix and match things when you start adding in several different materials – and it is a great way to customize your jewelry and make it your own. Today’s pretty Leather and Rhinestone Bracelet is the perfect accessory to add your own twist and colors to!
This is such an easy bracelet to make – you don’t any experience either! It’s a quick project you can make up in about a half an hour and it would be a great gift too!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Leather Cuff (you can buy a purchased one or you can make your own)
- Rhinestone Strand
- 1/2″ x 40″ piece of fabric
- e-6000 glue
- Wire cutters (if necessary)
Measure out the rhinestone strand – you want it to fit in the middle of the leather bracelet without overlapping the fastener. Trim the strand with wire cutters if you need to. Glue in place with the E6000 glue.
Glue the fabric strip down on the back side at one end of the bracelet. Begin wrapping the fabric around cuff. Between the rhinestones twist the fabric twice so that the right side of the fabric is showing at the top and bottom of the rhinestones.
Keep wrapping and twisting the fabric until you reach the other end of the bracelet. Fold the end of the fabric under on the back side of the bracelet and glue the end down.
The back of the bracelet should just be flat fabric strips.
That’s it! Super easy right?!
This bracelet looks great stacked with others too!
