Wanna know a secret, though? Leather charm bracelets are really easy to make. And inexpensive. For about the cost of one bracelet, you could buy everything you need to make several of these leather charm bracelets yourself – including a good pair of pliers.

Supplies needed:

Two feet of green suede lacing

Infinity charm in Antique Bronze finish.

2 – 4 mm jump rings in antique bronze

1 – 12mm jump ring or chain tab in Antique Bronze – omit if you use a toggle clasp.

Directions

Take your suede lacing, and cut it into two 1-foot sections. Set one aside.

Fold the other green lacing in half, with the two cut ends together. Feed these two ends through one end of your charm.

Loop the leather ends back through the leather loop you’ve formed to create a half-hitch knot. Pull tightly. You may need to manipulate this a little with your fingers to get it tight and attractive.

Repeat for the other piece of leather on the other side.

Decide how long you’d like your bracelet. Trim the excess leather. Now, trim a little more. The clasp will add a good ½-1 inch to the length of your bracelet.

Attach cord ends or ribbon clasps to each end. Simply slide your leather ends in, and clamp the finding down. You may want to add a dab of glue like E-6000. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t.

Open your jump ring and attach the clasp to one of your ends. Repeat with the other end and the chain tab or large jump ring. If you’re using a toggle clasp, attach the other half of the toggle.  Remember, you want to twist your jump rings to open and close them, not pull them apart.
