It’s always tempting to create jewelry in the red-white-and-blue theme. Maybe because there’s a yearly 4th of July celebration when you can proudly wear it. So when a stash of braided imitation leather cords in assorted colors came my way, the first project that came to mind was a red-white-and-blue bracelet.
Below is a quick tutorial on how I made this double braided 4th of July piece, which can be applied to any set of your favorite colors.
1. Gather the braided leather cords and the clasps and findings you will use. For this grouping of cords, you will need a pair of cord end caps to hold the strands together. I chose a set of toggle clasps to complete the bracelet. The jump rings connect the end caps to the toggle clasp.
2. Glue the set of cords to one end cap. I used cyanoacryclate (Instant/Super Glue) for a fast and strong hold. Braid the cords together and trim to size. Remember to include the length of the clasp in measuring the bracelet size.
3. Attach the end caps to the jump rings and toggle clasp. And you’re done!
