Leather Bracelet with Micro Screws & Nuts Tutorial

Monday, November 9, 2015

Isn't it great to find a project that takes minutes to make but creates a big visual punch? Pair up my bracelet cuff with leather straps for a super simple project that is fun to wear and stack with other bracelet designs. Micro screws and nuts make this a no-fail project with very minimal tools and no riveting experience needed!

Supplies
Bracelet cuff
8” 19 gauge steel wire
2 15mm brass jump rings
10” leather strap ½” wide
18mm x 20mm copper E hook clasp
4 micro 1” screw and nut sets
Metal punch
Wire cutters
Scissors
Bench block
Ball peen hammer
 
Find leather, E hook clasp, jump rings, micro screw and nuts at Lima Beads
Bracelet cuffs from Humblebeads.etsy.com
Use 4" of steel wire to create a wrapped bail on the bracelet cuff. Repeat on the other side. 
 
1. Attach the 15mm jump ring to each end of the bracelet cuff.  Cut the leather strap in half. String one leather strap through the 15mm jump ring and fold the end of the leather strap over at 1/2” from the end. Punch a hole through the overlapped leather pieces ¼” from the jump ring. Make sure the punch goes through both pieces of leather. 
 
Tip: Always punch the hole from the top of the leather strap.
 
2. Thread the bolt through the leather straps with the finished end facing up on top of the leather straps.
 
3. Thread on the nut on the bolt on the back of the leather.
 
4. Use chain nose pliers to tighten the nut securely.
 
5. Trim off the end of the bolt wire cutters flush to the nut.  
 
6. Place the bracelet with the nut side up on top of the bench block, lightly tap the cut off end of the bolt with the ball peen hammer to flatten the end slightly.  
 
7. Measure the straps to fit your wrist with 1/2” extra leather on each side, trim leather to shorten if needed. Thread the closed end of the  E hook clasp through the end of one of the straps, fold the strap over and punch a hole a 1/4” from the clasp. Repeat step 4. & 5. to secure the leather loop.
 
8. Repeat step 7 on the other side of the leather strap, making a loop with the 1/2” of leather without inserting the clasp.
 

 
Order more leather, screws and clasps than you think you'll need because these bracelets are addictive and you'll want to whip up a pile of them!!!!
