Simple Leather Wristlet




About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English & Social Studies (...

Making simple leather bracelets either as a standalone or as part of stacking is very easy to do. This Instructable shows you how to make an easy chip stone bracelet.


Step 1: BoM

Chip stones

Leather cord



Spacer beads

Jewelry pliers

Step 2: Wire

Cut a 4-5" piece of wire. At one end, using your jewelry pliers, twist a loop and wrap it using the pliers.

Step 3: Chip Beads

I have a bunch of blue goldstone chip beads, so that's what I'm using. Slide a couple spacers beads and then bunch of the chip stone beads onto the wire until you've reached your desired amount. Mine is about 3". Twist the open end into a loop and cut off any excess.

Step 4: Leather

You'll need two pieces of leather cord for the rest of the bracelet. I did a double strap, which is optional. Put the leather through one of the loops and then tie a knot. Add your closures to the open end of the leather. Repeat on the other side, making sure to include a lobster clasp of some sort for attaching both ends.

Step 5: Done!

Now try on your bracelet! These types of bracelets are so easy to make and very fast. They are a great activity to teach kids as well!
