2 Easy Celtic Knot Bracelets Tutorial
Created by: Polly Nobbs-LaRue
These bracelets are almost too easy! (And the fancy toolkits at the end are totally optional.)
Set the TierraCast Rivetable or Link in the center of the leather bracelet and use a fine-point permanent marker to mark exactly where you want to punch the hole(s).
Punch hole(s) using the smallest setting (2mm) on the rotating leather hole punch. A hole up to 3/32" (2.4mm) is ok.
Click into the product details of the rivet below, for a picture of the order to stack parts for riveting.
Make sure the rounded rivet head is at the top, matching the rounded end of your rivet setter, and use a brass hammer to strike the rivet setter. Check to make sure it's set (no wiggles); if it's not, hammer again.
Repeat for other rivets, and you're done!
There are nearly-infinite options when it comes to creating jewelry using rivets. I tried to keep it simple for this quick tutorial, but if you want to do something a little different or more advanced, check out some of our blog articles on riveting. If you have any questions, there's a spot for comments/questions at the end of the blog -- and we do reply (usually on weekdays).
