Changes have been afoot in Silverlox (our house) and life's been a bit more hectic than normal for the past several weeks. As such, my blogging has suffered. I hope to get some time to fill y'all in, but that's not going to happen right now. Instead, let me share a tutorial I created.
While I struggled to end some lengths of suede (faux?) on a bracelet, I decided to turn on the camera and share my technique.
Initially, I had hoped to put tube rivets in the leather, but that didn't work out well. Instead, I used the punched holes to my advantage to help hold the wire in place as I wrapped it.
The leather is simply slid through the holes on the end of a Tim Holtz tag that I altered with two shades of Vintaj Patinas.
Here's the video on how to Create a Bracelet with Leather to give you a better look at the process.
I'm always open to answering any questions you may have, so please don't hesitate to ask!
It's a super simple process, but I do hope that you enjoy the idea!
the contrast of gunmetal with magenta really makes the bracelet pop. But what truly got me were the words. Wow!ReplyDelete
