Leather Charm bracelet

This version of the bracelet is the prototype. I posted additional photos and instructions at Beyond The Manual.

Wow, very nice! It looks so delicate!

I love the non-linier ovals!

Not delicate at all!! I could probably drive a car over it and not damage it. Very dense leather.

I enjoy taking a simple shape and alternating it.

Only after 17 times!!!

Hey… trial and error, I know how that works!

Looks great! Really smart way to make the bracelet without metal links! And 17 times isn’t too bad. I forgot to mention to you earlier that I spent the last two days trying to 3D print a “sink” for my miniature customer, and after 2 full days of failed prints (each taking over 2.5 hours), I got one decent one, and I told her it’s way faster, cheaper, and less stressful to cut it out of acrylic and glue it together.

Very cool idea to translate the metal link bracelet to leather! It looks great!

Love it! Leather is indeed amazing–and great idea to make it work for charms–and love their look w/ the lacquer! Are the charms also leather, or wood?

I’ve never seen a leather charm bracelet—that’s a cool design! Seems like a good way to make leather chains in general, too.
