Braided Leather Bracelet

Isn’t this bracelet pretty??

I found this great site online for all sorts of braided leather laces.  They have every single color I could imagine!  I used blue and turquoise to make this beautiful bracelet.

I used 4mm cords for this bracelet and bought all my supplies from the same site.  The findings are sterling silver and the leather cord quality is superb!

I love the murano beads that slip onto the leather cording.  I love all shades of blues and turquoise so this was an easy decision. The beads are just beautiful!

Everything arrived ready to use in labeled bags, the end caps were easy to apply to the leather pieces and it just was so easy to make. I found this store online by a search for leather cording and finishing supplies and shipping was prompt.

I finished this bracelet today, tomorrow I am going to make another bracelet.  That one will be made from thinner 2.5 mm braided leather cords and the colors are grey and turquoise.
