Taught by Elke Bergeron
Leather bracelets have a warmth and luxury to them, and it is easier than you may think to make your own. In this class, Elke shows how to make a stylish wrap bracelet with a chic metallic gold finish. Using leather working tools like a strap cutter and a beveler, she shows you how to cut the leather evenly and bevel the edges, which gives the bracelet a professional, polished look. Once the leather has been cut out, you will paint the strap, punch holes in either end, and attach a button stud to create the closure. The tools and materials required for this project are inexpensive and easy to find, making it a perfect first project for a beginning leather-worker. Cut out several leather strips at once and whip up a batch to give as gifts to friends, or keep the whole stack for yourself!
