Triple Row Leather Bracelet DIY Video Tutorial

I received a reader request on how to create a multi-row beaded leather bracelet similar to the tutorial for the Leather Wrap Bracelet here.  The instructions are similar with just a few modifications - see below for materials and video.



What I used (materials can be purchased at most hobby stores like Michael's):
  • 40 inches of 1 mm leather cord
  • Beads 
  • Size D Nymo thread
  • Beading needle (personally I use a floss threader because I like that it's flexible without getting warped in the beading process - also any size thread will fit easily in the loop)
  • Beading glue (I use super glue because the bead glue I have turns white and crusty when dry)
  • Button with 2+ holes (needs to fit 2 mm cord, look for spare buttons around the house)


Questions?  Just leave it in the comments and I'll get back to you :)

  3. You're so crafty! I was head over heels into beads when I was younger but since I couldn't even make a simple bracelet without it falling apart, I quite. This seems manageable to a girl with two left hands like me :) This is a very fashion-forward bracelet and I like it quite a bit.

  10. Annie - Thanks so much! Baby Girl and I are doing well - thanks for asking!

    Jessy - Thanks! LOL about my voice, one step at a time. The face thing is a little because I'm too lazy to worry about makeup and facial expressions. :)

    Anna - Thank you! I'm so glad that the tutorial seems pretty user-friendly! I was worried about it :)

    Thu - Thank you! Being a mother of 2 is definitely different than being a mother of 1! But it has been going pretty well and Big Brother seems to love his Lil Sis :)

    Grace - Thanks so much! I want to make another version soon once I find the right components.

    Dina, Jazzy - Thanks for dropping by and commenting! I'll be sure to visit your blog right after this :)

    LePetiteLemon - I've tried needles before and hated it so I do love using my floss threaders :) Hope it goes better for you this time and thanks for the comment on my voice! I'm a little self-conscious about it - it's very "little girl" sounding and when I answer the phone, I frequently get asked, "Can you put your mommy on the phone?"

    Bonnie - Thanks so much! I hope this tutorial is helpful to people :)

    Kileen - Aw, thank you! I like doing tutorials - it makes me feel helpful :)

  11. I have another type of 3 row Chan Luu bracelet that I would like some help learning how to do it. It looks to be some sort of macrame. I would like to send a pic to you and you can find a purple one on the actual Chan Luu website for your review. Thanks in advance!!

  12. Allison - yes, please send a link or photo and I'll see if I know how to make it
