Gold & Copper Leather Bracelets
Up for a fast, easy and inexpensive jewelry diy? Then this is it for you today. We will use brass paper fasteners and leather scraps. These paper fasteners are an inexpensive alternative to rivets and you can get them at any stationary store if you don’t already have them at home.
You will need:
► Leather (I used metallic gold cowhide without AZO-colorants and Chrome VI from a German tannery)
► Old bracelet (mine has a rose/copper color)
► Cutting blade
► Brass paper fasteners
The pictures shows 3 different kind of bracelets. The first one is a simple cuff, where you cut a long piece of leather, punch two holes and use the brass paper fastener to close it.
The second one is copper bracelet I had and just wanted to fancy up a little. I cut a thin piece of leather, the length of the bracelet and ran it through the chain.
The last one is simply a piece of copper chain and an arrow cut from leather. I punched a hole in the lower part of the arrow and attached the last ring of the chain to it. You close it by simply pushing the tipt of the arrow through the end of the chain.
Have a lovely day!
