Flat Leather For Designer Jewelry

These gorgeous bracelets were designed by Fernando DaSilva to highlight all the new colour options in our flat leather collection.

The addition of pearls makes this bracelet very feminine.

The flat leather animal prints are gorgeous.

Fernando combined the animal prints with solid colours.

 

He used our new Metal Complex oblong punch to create the open areas and also added a grooved line to the inside leather for additional detail work.

Our slider collection makes adding additional embellishment a breeze.

Your options are endless!

I am sharing a new flat leather bracelet designed by Nancy Donaldson, who was clearly determined to use as many colours as possible in her latest submission.

Our flat leather collection is available in two widths.  Nancy is using 10 x 2 mm peices.

I said to Nancy that this looked like a difficult math project!  She created the piece without a diagram.  It was a free form project that turned out beautifully.

Nancy used two of our new curved magnetic clasps to finish her bracelet.  The silver rivets were set with our eyelet and rivet setter.  The curved clasp is ideal for this project and is available in silver, gold and gunmetal.

Nancy tucked all her ends in our Metal Complex flat leather specialty clasps.

Metal Complex Sliders!

Nancy Donaldson fashioned these two gorgeous bracelets with two different types of leather.

Two strips of leopard nappa leather gold cord were set side by side for the first bracelet.

White flat leather was used for the second bracelet.

Finishing the bracelets is quite easy with our designed to match glue-in magnetic clasps.

 

The choices for clasps are wonderful and they are available in gold, silver and gunmetal.

The sliders are also available in the three colours shown.

Flat leather colour choices are fabulous too!

It goes without saying that flat leather is wonderful for bracelet making.  In moments you can create a fabulous wearable.

With a little time and planning however, you can really use the flat leather in ways yet to be discovered.  Nancy planned her designs and with the careful placement of punched holes was able to “string” her shapes.  She also used knotted beads in parts of her design.

These are the colours of flat leather used for the purple pendants.  Fire and Ice black facetted beads are her embellishment.

I really like how some simple aluminum wire was twisted to create the bow for the bracelet.

The careful placement of punched holes allowed Nancy to fold this section of flat leather into place.  Wire wrapping the choker holds the leather shape.

The flat leather was joined with some wire staples made from aluminum wire.

The gorgeous chain edge was created with Fancy Chain.  Nancy had several options and two colours to choose from.  The chain makes it look like you spent hours attaching dangles.

Simple jump rings attached the chain to the flat leather.

A complicated looking bracelet which is so easy to craft!  So many ways to use our new Metal Complex flat leathers!
