DIY | Leather Bracelets

*Disclaimer: This post is brought to you courtesy of Endlessleather.com. I received samples of their products in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own and are in no way influenced by their company. 

I received an e-mail from Endlessleather.com offering to send me a sample of their products in exchange for an honest product review. EndlessLeather is based in Germany with an amazingly huge variety of leather laces, cords, and accessories. I'll be starting off a series of DIYs using their products so stay tuned for more posts brought to you by EndlessLeather!

To be honest, I was at first skeptical about the website as it was foreign and I had no knowledge about the company...plus the website didn't seem legitimate. I'm pleased to say though that after some research and after receiving my samples, that this Endlessleather's products are of the highest quality and I think very highly of their customer service.

Here's a sampling of all the products I chose:

Left: double stitched | Right: recycled leather
Review: I chose a selection of double stitched and recycled leather cords, each 1 meter long, 7mm wide x 2mm thick. I was actually surprised because I wasn't expecting these leather laces to be such high quality. All of them were beautiful, stitched perfectly, and very durable. I got the double stitched in black, light beige, and powder, and the recycled leather in black, patent black, camel, beige, silver, and gold. Most of the colors were accurate compared to the pictures shown, although it'd be useful if they showed the cords to scale...I was expecting them to be wider. Oh how I wish they had the double stitched in mint!

Left: various findings | Right: leather clasp
I was also pleasantly surprised that their jewelry findings were also of really high quality; the sterling silver findings are super shiny and durable. Nothing flimsy here! I was a little disappointed that they didn't have more gold findings available but I was impressed with what I received. I chose two stainless steel crown charms, two gold lobster clasps, two gold cord ends, two gold spring rings, two silver spring rings, two silver lobster clasps, four square cord ends, three silver lever clasps, and a couple packs of silver jump rings. I have nothing but high praises to sing about EndlessLeather's quality.

Alright guys, so finally now onto the DIY! This is one of the simpler projects that I made using materials from EndlessLeather. You can't really go wrong with a classic leather bracelet. This also makes a great unisex gift; I could totally see both men and women rocking this!

Steps


1. Measure and cut out a length of leather cord long enough to fit around your wrist.

2. Apply glue to one end and slip into the empty space of the clasp.

3. Repeat with other end and let dry.

I ended up making three of these to stack, choosing neutral colors so that it would match with any outfit. You can also keep the cord longer and make it into an understated belt! :)


** Don't wanna DIY? Prefer to B-U-Y? I'll be selling any extras I made, along with many other items, in my shop Two Teaspoons coming soon. Stay tuned!
