Introduction: Leather Braided Bracelets

Made at Techshop SF (techshop.ws)

Lasered on the 60-watt laser cutter and braided by hand. Snaps also hammered in by hand

Supplies:
Leather scraps
Snap setter kit
Segma snaps
Hammer

Tips:
1. Length of your bracelet should exceed your wrist circumference by 1/2 inch! The braiding will shrink the bracelet.
2. Be very precise when hammering the snaps in. Make sure the setter doesn’t move while hammering, otherwise your setters will be crooked!
3. Video for learning to braid the leather into a bracelet

These are really nice! :) Why do you need a laser cutter though? :) I used to do leather tooling..we just cut the pieces :)
