DIY Leather Chain Bracelet:

 

Don’t you just love the look on the recipient’s face when you tell them the gift you’ve just given is something you’ve made? This DIY bracelet is created for that effect. You can turn it into a necklace by making it longer, hang charms, or just leave it as is.

I love this bracelet for the timeless classic that it is. I’ve done it in silver chain with black suede, with leopard print cord, with organza ribbon – you name it! The gold on white preserves a bit of the freshness of summer, while bringing in the golden hues of autumn.

You can wear it alone, stack it, or pair with a delicate ring. This bracelet is so versatile – completing both an evening dress and a pair of jeans, making it an ideal gift for anyone. Measurements below are approximate and will depend on your wrist size.

 

 

 

 

What you need for this DIY Leather Chain Bracelet:  

 

DIY Leather Chain Bracelet

 

  1. 1 toggle clasp
  2. about 8″ large cable chain
  3. about 12″ (more is great to be safe) 5mm flat leather cord
  4. 2 pliers – I used one chain nose and one round nose
  5. E6000 or similar glue (optional)

 

What to do:

Measure chain to the size you want it, keeping in mind that the clasp will add some length. See how to accurately measure your bracelet size here.

Using two pliers, pry apart the end link of the chain on one side. attach one end of the clasp and put back together.

Attach the other side of the clasp to the other end.

Insert one end of the cord into the last link and make a knot.

Weave in and out of chain links, holding the cord flat so it doesn’t twist inside the chain. Continue for the length of the bracelet.

Knot the other end around the last link, pulling tight. Be sure that you don’t allow the chain to fold – the leather should be moving, not the chain.

Optional: insert a dot of glue into the center of the knot to secure.

I really loved the DIY Leather Chain Bracelet! It doesn't look too awful hard to make and it's really very beautiful! I would want to use a darker color now that fall and winter are here! The white looks terrific for spring & summer! You are so talented! I wish I could do a lot of the things you guys do!!!! Thanks so much for showing us how to make this bracelet! I do, however, have a question. Do you get your chains at a craft store? or do you get it in real gold at a jewelers? Just wondering! Thanks again, Michele :)

Especially for such a project I'd use something from a craft store, or jewelry making supplier. Occasionally I use silver for a more delicate, special piece. I used to make this in heavy silver chain with a leopard print leather cord :)
