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.
