Faux Leather Gemstone Bangle

PROJECT B3064
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make this trendy bangle bracelet featuring Regaliz braided faux leather cork and a lovely Carnelian gemstone bead. Wear just one or stack a few on your wrist to showcase your favorite gemstones.
Instructions
The braided cork in this project measures 7�. To adjust the size, simply change the braided cork length in your materials list.
  1. Begin by adding a few drops of Super New glue into one of your gold plated cord ends.
  2. Carefully place one end of your pre-cut 7" length of Regaliz braided cork into the cord end. (This glue is quite strong so be careful not to get any on your fingers.) Hold in place for a few seconds.
  3. Repeat this process with a second cord end and the other end of your Regaliz braided cork. Set aside.
  4. Slide on a carnelian gemstone bead onto a gold plated eye pin. Create a simple wire loop with your round nose pliers and snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  5. Next, with your chain nose pliers open a gold plated jump ring and slide it onto a simple wire loop from one side of your carnelian gemstone bead. Before closing the jump ring, also slide on the loop from on of your cord ends and close.
  6. Repeat this process with a second jump ring and your second cord end.
  7. That�s it!
