Step 6: Embellishement
I decided the sides were too plain, so I added some brass bits from a jewelry project.
I soldered all the joins on the jewelry piece so it wouldn't fall apart, then just sewed it on with heavy button thread through the leather. I used the Fraycheck to seal the knot.
As a side note, I always solder my jewelry bits, like the jump rings and stuff. I am hard on jewelry, and try to make sure I create things that take into account my penchant for disaster.
