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 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!

This featured pendant by Nancy Donaldson is just one inspiring image for a series of shaped designs with flat leather.
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.
This latest set of flat leather jewelry by Nancy Donaldson features an interesting way to fold you leather into pleasing shapes.
This is the flat leather Nancy designed with.
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 collection includes many clasps to choose from. Nancy used a magnetic clasp on this piece.
With so many colours to choose from you could make this set is so many different palettes.
This new bracelet design from Nancy Donaldson incorporates a double row of flat leather glued into one of our new clasps.
These clasps are also available in gunmetal and silver.
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!
