Introduction: Leather Bracelet & Ring Combo "Slave Bracelet"
Leather Bracelet & Ring Combo - aka "Slave Bracelet" aka "Hand Flowers" aka "Thong Bracelet"
Step 1: Supply List
Leather scraps - your choice of fabric like Vinyl or Suede
Round Nose Pliers
1 package of Jump Rings (buy from Walmart or any craft store)
1 package of Ribbon Ends (buy from Walmart or any craft store)
1 package of Toggle Clasps (buy from Walmart or any craft store)
Leather Hole Puncher
Needle & Thread or sewing machine
E-6000 or Krazy Glue
Step 2: Create & Assemble the Bracelet
Start with the Bracelet:
Measure around your wrist and around the finger(s) you want to connect the bracelet and ring to.
Cut out a rectangle piece of leather 5/8" W x 7 1/2"L
Fold the rectangle in half (Mine is 3 1/2") and mark on the wrong side of the leather a small x and use the leather hole punch to make a small hole (not too close to the edge)
Add one ribbon crimp to each end of the leather and then add jump rings and toggle clasps
Test the fit of the bracelet
Step 3: Connector & Ring
For the Connector piece:
Cut out 3 strips of leather 1/8"W x 8"L and braid them together, hold the ends together with scotch tape
*Make sure you make this piece long enough so it doesn't break when wearing it. Give yourself enough room when you flex your hand and fingers.
Measure your middle finger for the ring - 5/8"W x 2"L
Fold the rectangle in half and mark on the wrong side of the leather a small x and use the leather hole punch to make a small hole (not too close to the edge)
Now fold the ring piece wrong sides together and stitch at a 1/4" seam allowance - you can also hand sew or use E-6000 glue.
Test the fit of your ring
Step 4: Assemble & Wear
Add one ribbon crimp to each end of the braid and then add jump rings to the holes in the bracelet and ring.
Test the fit of entire item and enjoy!
All your friends & family will want one! :)
