Retired - Ophidian Bracelet in Copper

PROJECT B5008
Designer: Tracy Gonzales
Skill Level: Intermediate
This stylish bracelet features faux snakeskin leather alternative cord, which gives a similar look to leather. It's made with TierraCast rivetables, cord end tips, and findings.
Instructions
  1. First, determine how long your want your finished bracelet to be. Standard sizes are about 7 to 8 inches. Your clasp will add about 2 inches, so subtract 2 inches from your desired length and cut your faux snakeskin cord to this length.
  2. Determine the placement for your infinity link rivetable bar and attach it the same way demonstrated in this video: How to Use TierraCast Compression Rivets With Leather and Alternative Cords. Just repeat the process for each of the holes in your link.
  3. Now attach the cord end tips as demonstrated in this video: How to Attach TierraCast Strap End Tips to Leather & Alternative Cords.
  4. Open a jump ring and thread it through one of your cord end tip loops and through the loop on a classic hook clasp; close the ring.
  5. Open a jump ring and thread it through the loop on the other cord end tip and through a small connector link ring; close the ring.
