Leather Bracelets

To cre­ate these three bracelets I used a fun prod­uct called Met­al Com­plex Flat Leather. They are pre-pack­aged leather strips that mea­sure 10 x 2mm and come in a wide assort­ment of col­or groups. The col­or group shown here is the Yellow/Steel Grey Metal­lic group. Met­al Com­plex also has avail­able 5mm spools in 20 dif­fer­ent col­ors as well as 3mm spools of col­ored faux snake leather.

What I love about this prod­uct is you can leave the leather strips as is like I did with the top bracelet. This is just how the leather strip looks when tak­en out of the pack­ag­ing. For the mid­dle bracelet, I decid­ed to see if I could emboss the leather strip using my Sizzix Big Shot and an emboss­ing fold­er. It worked beau­ti­ful­ly and the emboss­ing was per­fect. Then for the bot­tom bracelet I fig­ured since the leather embossed so beau­ti­ful­ly I would try some met­al stamp­ing. I met­al stamped the quote “Smile, Breathe & go slow­ly” by Thich Nhat Hanh and love how it came out. It looks great.

As you can tell from the embell­ish­ments on each bracelet I’m hav­ing a lot of fun cre­at­ing ham­mered flow­ers. I real­ly like the sim­plic­i­ty of this flower style.
