My friend Maria Loughran designed this gorgeous bracelet, and I wrote the tutorial. We have been making leather bracelets for a while, but Maria came up with a brilliant idea for the button closure that requires no knots. The bracelet stays flat against the wrist! This tutorial requires just a few materials, leather, a button, a handful of beads, and a needle and thread. If you have wanted to learn this popular technique to make one strand that wraps 2-3 times around your wrist or a single band with multiple rows, this tutorial is for you. I show you step by step how to create either style, complete with a button closure. There are also a few variations at the end of the tutorial, as well as a supply list for materials.
