Getting Started with Leather Bracelets
Leather bracelet design using our products is as simple or complex as you want it to be! For more advanced jewelry makers, you can combine products, weave, punch, and more to create truly unique creations. Want something simple for your customers? Follow the basic steps for gorgeous leather jewelry every time!

Our basic leather bracelets use the following components:

  • A strip of leather measuring about 7"
  • A glue-in clasp
  • One or more slider beads, to create your design

You will need the following tools:

  • Super glue
  • Leather cutters
Our products are labelled so you know which clasps and beads will fit your chosen leather. 10mm Flat leather fits in to our 10mm Flat Clasps and 10mm Flat Sliders, for example. No matter what size you're working with, the basic steps are the same!


Some clasps will require a little more design work. Our popular hook or half-cuff clasps use a loop of leather.

Hi Terri, our leathers and components are made in Europe so they use measurements in millimeters and not inches. You can google the conversion to see what is closest to your preference. We do not have a paper catalog, all of the information is on our website!
