In partnership with http://www.favecrafts.com/Jewelry-Making , I am pleased to present this video on how to make a bracelet styled for men! For more free craft projects, video tutorials and craft tips, visit http://www.FaveCrafts.com .

Using leather cording and some hardware nuts, this simple bracelet is perfect for men. It can also be worn for adding an edgy look to your outfit. Either way, this bracelet is sure to make a statement!


» Materials List «

• Three hardware nuts (I used ½ nuts)
• Two cord tips (I used 6x3mm with 2mm inside diameter)
• Two 5mm jumprings
• Lobster claw clasp with tag
• 2mm leather cording
• Epoxy glue or E6000 cement
• Toothpicks
• A paper plate
• Ruler
• Two pairs of pliers
• Scissors

» Instructions «

• Measure your leather cording by dividing your desired finished length in half and adding 1-1/4" to that length. Tie a knot where you measured your cording. I wanted a 6-1/2" bracelet, so I divided 6-1/2" by 2 and got 3-1/4". I then added the 1-1/4" to that length and got 4-1/2".
• String on the three hardware nuts and tie a knot to keep them in place.
• To measure and cut the other side of your bracelet, you need to start your measuring at the middle nut. Like before, divide your desired finished length in half. I wanted a 6-1/2" bracelet, so I measured 3-1/4" from the middle nut. Cut the leather cording.
• Attach your cord tips with the E6000 cement and flatten them using a pair of pliers. By flattening the cord tips, you are pinching the leather cord which will help keep the cord tips from falling off.
• Attach your clasp using the jumprings.
