For making a simple braceletbut rather a framework and a long strip of thin leather. As a basis you can use ready plastic ring. If such things are in the economy showed up, cut a strip from durable plastic banks. The basis must be of such a diameter that it can be effortlessly worn on the arm.
Lubricate the basis for the braceletand with white glue and wrap it with a strip of soft leather, stacking the coils so that each successive overlap the previous turn by half the width of the strip. If you wound the cord on a flat basis wider than 0.5 cm, glue to the outside folded several times a strip of cloth. This will help make the bracelet a more three-dimensional. If you use for winding twisted leather cord, place the coils as close as possible to each other.
Covering all basis, lubricate the end of the leather strip or cord glue and push it with the tip of scissors or knitting needle under the first turns. Wait until the glue dries.
Panel bracelet colorful beads with a thin needle and nylon thread. If the skin you wrapped the bracelet istoo tight and poorly punctured with a needle, insert and pull out the needle, picking up her pliers.
For making a more complicated braceletand will need a skin thickness of from three to five millimeters. Cut it from the workpiece along the shape of the future bracelet. When processing in boiling water, the workpiece is significantly reduced in size, so make a bracelet for three to four centimeter longer than you need.
Apply to the workpiece pattern that will decorate the bracelet. Can draw pattern lines with a thin marker directly on the skin or on the Internet to find a suitable ornament, resize it to the dimensions of the braceletand in the image editor and print on the printer.
To transfer the pattern from paper to the blank for braceletand you can use transfer paper. To do this, put on the skin paper dye layer down on top of it place the printed image and draw lines on the image with a ballpoint pen, hard pencil or thin knitting needle. If the base is carved from very dark skin and the transfer paper does not leave visible traces, transfer the pattern, its pinhole through the paper with a thick needle.
A sharp knife with a thin blade cut a line drawing one-third the thickness of the skin. The edges of the workpiece do a few holes for the lacing with a punch.
Wear the bracelet on a glass or metal jar with a smooth surface. The banks diameter should be slightly larger than the diameter of the braceletin strung condition. Insert into openings of the workpiece a wire or undyed cotton cord, and tighten the bracelet to the Bank.
Two or three minutes lower the workpiece into the boiling water. As soon as the edges of the cut pattern will begin to diverge, the bracelet can be removed.
After the skin has cooled, grind all the angles and slices braceletand fine-grained sandpaper. Can tint the product is a marker of appropriate color and Polish his colourless cream for footwear.
