How To Make Custom Leather Bracelets

Last Updated:

My daughter requested one of those custom leather bracelets for her birthday this year. So, at around $30 to $80 each, I was soon searching the internet for a DIY tutorial on how to make leather bracelets of the same style and quality at around a fraction of the cost!

It didn’t take long before I had the information and guess what, they are extremely simple to make!

So I found some beautiful wholesale licorice leather, you can get it in just about any color you could think of. Licorice leather also known as regaliz leather is named after the old style licorice sticks, it’s flat on one side and rounded on the other very much like the letter “D” shape.

Also freely available was a good variety of leather bracelet clasps and slide on beads that fit perfectly to make my diy leather bracelet.

As I was making this for my daughter who’s not so girly I went for black leather and a few simple beads, but I did notice a shocking pink licorice leather and some great sparkling beads whilst looking and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of them!

What You Will Need

  • Wholesale Licorice Leather Cord

Step2 Glue on the clasps. You should only need one drop of glue on each side to glue the clasp onto the leather ends. Be sure to test the clasps on both ends before gluing as it’s possible to accidentally glue one part upside down, and please don’t ask me how I know this!
