                                                                       IDEAS

Here are some general ideas for jewelry making with leather and these ceramic beads.  Change the colors, adjust the design- they are here to help stimulate your creativity!    Many of these designs are earthy colors - I tend to gravitate toward brighter colors however most people can get a better visual of design with the earth tones.

tip for these braids- the center bead shouldn't fit too loosely on the cord.


I used 2mm leather
and 20 g wire for the center.

the outer bead on each side is a "leather spot" I just fold over the bottom prongs and they hold all beads in place!

3mm leather and the little beads on the sides are called "spots"  they have prongs and I squeezed them around the leather
