You and Eye Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
A cool bohemian look fills this bracelet design. A magical eye from Grace Lampwork takes center stage on earthy leather, while a string-on clasp gives you an adjustable length. You can also try this design with other focal beads and different colors of leather for a whole new look.
Step one: Watch this video tutorial to learn how to use the string-on clasp. Slide the Grace Lampwork blue eyed focal bead onto the center of a two-foot length of 2mm natural light brown round leather and knot the leather on each end of the bead.
Step two: Slide one end of the leather through the 8x4mm antique brass round string-on clasp with silicone grommet.
Step three: Use side cutters to cut the other end of the leather at an angle. Apply a small amount of Loctite adhesive to the angled end and allow to dry.
Step four: Poke chain nose pliers through the clasp to create a small opening and then insert the angled end of the leather into the opening. Use chain nose pliers to push and coax the leather through the clasp. Then, pull through from the other side.
Step five: Adjust the clasp so that it is centered on the leather and slide it to the wrist/bracelet size desired. Knot each end of leather approximately 1-1 1/2 inches from the clasp. Trim excess leather.
