How to Make a Women's Leather Bracelet

 

Mothers Day Bracelet

This ring-in-center leather bracelet is the perfect gift for Mother's Day or any special occasion. We used a Brandy 3/4 oz. chrome tanned leather for its exceptional softness and feel. Keep in mind that the bracelet will lay nicer when using a soft leather. If you prefer veg tanned leather, we suggest a lightweight 2/3 oz. that will get softer and more supple with every wear.

1. Measure and Cut Your Leather Strap

  • Measure your wrist using a soft tape measure or string.
  • Take that measurement and multiply by 2 and add 1/2". My wrist measured 6.5" so my bracelet length is 13.5".
  • Cut your leather 1" wide by the length you came up with above.

2. Punch Holes

  • Find the center of your strap and punch a hole, making sure the hole is centered width wise also.
  • Punch another hole at one end of the strap, 1/4" in from the edge and centered in the middle. Repeat at the other end of the bracelet.

3. Cut Center Slits

  • Cut the center slits on each side of the bracelet, starting 1/2" from the center hole and stopping 1" from the hole at the end of the strap. Repeat on the other side of the bracelet.

4. Cut Slit for Button Stud

  • On one strap end, cut a small slit about 3/8" from the center of the hole out, this will allow the strap to slide over the button stud.
