Leather Wrap Bracelet DIY – Make Your Own Leather Jewellery

I’m always looking for unusual ways to decorate leather. This leather wrap bracelet I decorated by cutting into the leather resulting in an interesting texture. I will definitely experiment more with this technique.

How I made the bracelet

I first burnished the edges of the strap to make them smooth and shiny and then cut into the leather with the utility knife

I then dyed the edges and cuts with black edge dye. I let this dry and painted the surface in between the cuts with textile dyes, pearl gold, green and blue.

It’s the first time I’m using textile dye on leather, it worked fine, you could also use acrylic leather dye or edge dye.

Next I applied beeswax on the entire bracelet.

I had to cut the ends a bit to fit them inside the cone beads and then glued them into place with epoxy glue.

It takes a couple of hours for the glue to set. I often can’t wait that long to wear my new piece of jewellery …

I made another leather wrap bracelet decorated with the batik technique, also an interesting  way to decorate leather.
