Leather Bracelet Beading Ideas
This is a grouping of three bead embroidered cuff bracelets created using different types of fabric, leather, suede, glass seed beads, freshwater pearls, glass beads and semi-precious jade chips. I love bead embroidery because it feels like I’m painting with beads.
This fun beaded bracelet was created with 4mm sparkly brown and, just a touch of, hot pink crystal fire polished beads. Its “wrapped” effect was created by threading the beads with 10 meters of size 2 cotton cord onto soft 1.5mm brown leather cord. I made the catch for the clasp by knotting the ends […]
The main materials used in this unique bracelet is 8 mm turquoise magnesite stones and bronze leather cord. I started by using the leather cord, making two strands, then I started weaving the stones between the two strand cord so that the bracelet will be wrapped three times around the wrist. Finally, I attached a […]
Whilst on holiday this year I found a shop which sold a lot of wrap bracelets. I thought they were lovely but quite expensive so decided to attempt to make one when I got home. To make the bracelet I have used 4mm gold glass beads, brown leather cord, 1 button and fireline to thread […]
Kaleidescope Cuff is a celebration of colour, form and texture. I started off with a brass blank interior and covered this with pink Ultrasuede.

This bracelet was fun to make. I received some porcelain beads for Christmas in this Red, Black and White color theme. I dug through my supplies and found many of the little treasures that I put into this piece. I took 3 12″ strands of leather cord, and knotted them around the silver lobster clasp […]
For this bracelet I used 4mm Czech glass beads I bought at a bead show, bronze-colored leather and Griffin silk thread. The button used was purchased from a store that was going out of business. The bracelet wraps around the wrist one time. This was my first attempt at making a wrapped bracelet.
This bracelet is an African opal bracelet with Czech crystal bi-cone flirts. How to make it: Cut two pieces of leather cord about 1 1/2″ shorter than you want it to be to allow for the focal bead and the clasp. I used a heavier 20 gauge half hard sterling silver wire, and did a […]
I used eight 19mm round acrylic bronze and white beads, and strung them on white leather, knotting the leather in between the beads. I used a bronze TierraCast toggle clasp. I hardly ever name my pieces, but when this bracelet was completed the name came to mind immediately. Length: Approximately 7-1/4″.
