How to make a European bracelet with this braided leatheroid cord?
The both ends of this braided leatheroid cord have been attached crimp clasps already. Before add beads & charms, we must remove one of the coil crimps from the leather end. The best tool for this is a pair of bent nose plier or someone preferred to use long nose pliers.
Simply pull the first coil to create a slight gap enough with your plier, and then take off the leather cord
Add the beads and charms of your choice; usually we prefer to create our braided charm bracelet with European wood beads and European ceramics charm beads, or several glass beads which are not too heavy.
Once you added your beads and charms into the leather, it is time to lock the crimp clasp in place.
Insert the leather cord end into the crimp; and then grip the first coil ring with plier. To ensure it is securely, you can pull the cord slightly to see whether the crimp has held the leather cord tightly.
(It is only that little coil hold the entire piece of bracelet, and that’s the reason we recommend you design this bracelet with wooden beads and ceramic beads)
Hope this instruction is helpful for your jewelry making.
