Leather Bolted Cuffs By Anna Liesemeyer
PHOTOS + TUTORIAL BY ANNA LIESEMEYER
We love this leather bolted cuff tutorial from Anna’s blog, In Honor of Design. These bracelets are so easy to make and look fantastic when stacked. Try using different colored real or faux leather and assorted studs that can be found at your local craft or fabric store. You can pick up precut strips or go through remnants for smaller pieces that can be used for this project. Use metal studs to add an edge to your look or use rhinestone studs for a softer approach. Have fun mixing these in with your other bracelets for an infinite number of stacking combinations.
Materials and Tools Needed
- Leather Strips
- Lobster Clasps
- 10 mm Crimps

- Cut the leather into strips that fit around your wrist.
- Using the point of a sharp knife or leather tool (make sure you have your leather pieces on a cutting board), cut small slits the width of your metal pieces along your leather strip.
