Thanks for tuning in today for this Free Tip Friday Circle Stitch Leather Bracelet episode!
For this demo I used:
Dubliner Button Copper
Mini Hoop Copper
1.5mm Indian Leather in Distressed Grey and Distressed Light Brown
.5 or 1mm Distressed Light Brown for silk wrap on leather
Fine C-Lon Sable for silk wrap on Trail’s End Closure.
Cut two cords 2 yards each.
Find center of both cords and silk wrap to button or hoop.
If attaching to hoop, use our “Trail’s End” finishing technique to add a
button to the bracelet.
Left Strand: Right and UP
Right Stand: Left and DOWN
Bottom Strand: Left and UP
Top Strand: Right and DOWN
To add beads:
Every fourth round, add bead to each leg before making the stitch.
Continue until desired length is reached. Finish with a simple knot for the button loop, or using closure of choice.
Here are a few candid shots from the completed sample, after the broadcast ended:
Competed bracelet fits my 6 1/2" wrist. Extra length needed due to the width of the finished bracelet.
Lark's head knot closure. I tucked the ends of two 12" strands of C-Lon under the silk wrap and then used one each to knot along the leather buttonhole.
Fits right in to my stack!
