Leather and Gemstone Bracelet Tutorial


Hello everyone,

Through a new tutorial I will enable you to make your very own, super fashionable wrap bracelet.

I saw my sister wearing a very similar bracelet that she purchased from the Sundance catalog for almost $200.  It was a very trendy and cool bracelet and I wanted one!  When I looked at the pattern I immediately realized that I could:

  • Improve upon the bracelet pattern through formulating an alternate method of connecting the gemstones to the leather cord that forms the backbone of the bracelet.
  • Make my very own bracelet, with my own choice of stones and colored leather, for less than $20 rather than $200.
  • Purchase some really cool antique buttons on eBay to use as a bracelet clasp.  This antique button clasp is far cooler than the sterling silver clasps used on commercial bracelets.

Read below for more details regarding this pattern, or purchase the comprehensive bracelet pattern  on Craftsy for $1.95 and make your own bracelet for $15 to $40 (depending on the quality of beads that you choose) rather than $200!  As always, I offer a 100% money back guarantee if you do not like the pattern for any reason at all!

After seeing my sister’s bracelet my next move was a no-brainer.  I had to make my own version of this bracelet.  And now I will share what I learned with you.

In my leather and gemstone bracelet tutorial I will provide you with a very detailed, step-by-step guide for making your very own leather and gemstone wrap bracelet.  I promise you that the resulting bracelet meets or exceeds the quality, flair, cool factor and fashion appeal of similar bracelets in each and every way.  As an added bonus, you can customize the bracelet to meet your own style and fashion sense, and to match your favorite outfits.

The pattern will allow you to make almost 10 bracelets for the price of a similar bracelet for sale in your favorite trendy catalog.  In the tutorial I also tell you where I buy all of the materials needed to make the bracelet (Shipwreck Beads, Fire Mountain Gems etc.).

After I made my own bracelets and started wearing them I found that many of my friends were asking me where I bought the bracelets.  And when I told them that I made the bracelets myself they were:

1.  Shocked (although anybody that knows me should not be shocked by this).

2.  Eager to make their very own bracelets.

After teaching a few people how to make the bracelets I quickly realized that it would be a good idea to teach a class with my leather and gemstone wrap bracelet tutorial as the focus subject of the class.  I taught 10 eager students (see image below) how to make the bracelet and they were all successful and all thrilled with the bracelet that they made during the class.  As a result of this class, I was able to refine my tutorial to be extremely clear, nearly guaranteeing that you can make one of these bracelets if you use the tutorial.

So please hop on over to Craftsy (if you are not a Craftsy member then I highly recommend that you sign up, it is easy and it is free and you can do it here) and then purchase my wrap bracelet pattern for only $1.95.  My Craftsy pattern store can be found here.  You will not be disappointed!

As always, I would love it if you left a comment regarding this post and /or your own experience making this bracelet.  Even more so, I would love to see photos of any bracelets that you made!

Best regards and happy crafting,

Kirsten

    I loved your pattern for Leather and Gemstone Bracelet that i bought on Craftsy. It was very easy to follow and I am very bad at following instructions. It was nice with lots of photo examples and detailed easy to understand wording.

    I look forward to try a new craft from you and to buy a whole kit when that is available.

    I only hope you ship to Sweden which is where I live.

    Thank you!

    Yours in Crafty spirit.
