  • These lovely bracers were made from two $5 scrap packs of leather found on Ebay.
  • The design is a combination of elements from the book "Mehndi Designs, Traditional Body Art" found at Michael's.
  • I cut the designs with an x-acto knife, then used a beveler, backgrounder and small circle stamp to finish the design.
  • Then I punched the holes for the laces and the rivets.
  • I stained the pieces with Eco-Flo All-in-One, in Fudge Brown, and then riveted them together.

How did you do the straps/fasteners on the underside?

<p>Best thing I've seen in years!! Many years (decades) ago I used to tool leather. Made a lot of gifts, even a pair of shoes. Never got to make my favorite thing, it was a motorcycle jacket with every inch tooled. A gal on a documentary about female bikers had one.</p>
<p>I understand you probably made these and then took pics, but more instructions would be appreciated.</p>
<p>Gorgeous work!</p>
Very lovely. Intricate design and displayed in an amazing way! I like these very much and would buy them.<br>c.qazi
