Braided Goat Suede and Leather Cord

This bracelet features one of the really great colours of goat suede now available at John Bead.  This is the light brown.

I was inspired to make it when I came across a simple tutorial on a blog called //between the lines//. I did my braiding on a handy cute clipboard.

The tutorial on the blog I linked to is for crafters only and not meant for commercial use.   I thought it was great that they were helping people to learn how to work with leather in such a great way.

The basic wrap around braid is showcased in hundreds of samples.  My braid shows off the black leather cord I chose to work with.

I also finished my bracelet with some gorgeous components as opposed to simple knots.  The patterned pewter end caps by JBB, were ideal to finish my ends before adding the hook and loop clasp.

Braiding leather is relaxing!  With or without components and tools!
