Retired - Planetary Nebula Bracelet

PROJECT B2257
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Make a statement with a galaxy of quartz gemstone geodes wrapped around your wrist.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a 7 inch bracelet. Simply modify the length of leather to adjust the length.
  1. Cut the leather into three equal lengths of 1 foot each.
  2. Thread them through the three holes of the leather end cap. Crimp the three spaces of the cord end using the needle nose end of the Xuron 4 in 1 crimping pliers. You can see a similar technique here.
  3. Slide one silver bead over all three cords and slide down to about 1 inch from the cord end.
  4. Take the center cord and thread on one geode bead. Then thread all three cords though another silver bead. Repeat this step twice more.
  5. Thread the cords through the cord ends as you did on the other side. Before you clip the leather, this is the point to adjust the size and length of your bracelet. Note that the clasp adds about 1 inch to the overall length.
  6. Once you have the size you want trim the leather cords and crimp them into the leather cord end.
  7. Open one jump ring and attach one side of the leather clasp to the magnetic clasp. Close the jump ring. Move to the other side of the bracelet and attach another jump ring to the other cord end.
