How to Make a Leather Rollo Chain Bracelet

Posted by Johnnie on 1/31/2014 to Design Ideas

Our latest design project is going to show you a new way to work with 1.5mm leather cord. This bracelet combines 1.5mm leather with 5.7mm Rollo Chain to form the base of the design. Connecting your toggle just takes a couple of jump rings, and you have a bracelet.

Materials Needed
  • 2 5.5mm Jump Rings
  • 2 7mm Jump Rings
  • 1 Toggle
  • 24 inches of 5.7mm Rollo Chain
  • 4 Feet of 1.5mm Leather Cord
View Kit (All materials needed are included in our kits)
Tools and Supplies Needed
  • Nipper Tool
  • Super New Glue
  • Bent Nose Pliers
  • Clip Board (Makes life easier)

This project can easily be completed by a beginner with the right tools. Our only suggestion is that you've had experience opening and closing jump rings. Once you've got that down, the rest starts to fall in place pretty easy. I should probably also mention that if you haven't worked with super new glue before, a little bit goes a long way.... lets get started.
