Beaded Leather Wrapped Bracelet March 28, 2011

Whew!!  After two hours of wrestling this snake of a bracelet, I think I’ve almost got it tamed.  Still a few adjustments I need to make.  Watched a few youtube videos on how to make this popular style.  Stores, both walk in and on line, are charging big bucks for these.  I do like the look though and wanted to give it a try.  And learned a few lessons along the way.

First Lesson–do not store your loose bead supply in the little cups in the beading tray.  I was trying to tighten up the lacing on the bracelet, torqued the tray, and had flying, bouncing beads all over the kitchen floor.  Had to race the dog and get them all picked up before he got to them.

Anyway, here’s the first attempt.

    Beautiful work! I have experienced many bead accidents. My cats love when it happens. Since my house is all hardwood floors the beads end up throughout the house! ~Val
