Hide & Chic Bracelets: How To

Steps:6
Leather bracelets work well with almost any personal style: A thin single strand looks sleek and modern, while a loose grouping of bracelets conveys a bohemian vibe. Make them yourself with little more than some basic, inexpensive cord and clasps. Soon you’ll have plenty of choices to wear -- and plenty to give away as gifts.
Materials
  • Bead (for bead closure)
  • Cord
  • Hook-and-loop clasp (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Multiuse adhesive, such as Duco Cement (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Paper plate (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Straight pin (for hook-and-loop closure)
  • Shank button (for button closure)
  • Embroidery floss (for button closure)
