Volta River Wrap Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: Mollie Valente
Cut a length of leather; either use the suggested length of 36" or adjust the length to your size needs.
Fold the leather in half and string the button to the half-way point. String two aluminum cube beads onto both leather cord ends.
Divide the leather cord ends and begin stringing glass trade beads onto one strand.
String the trade beads in a random pattern, adding a Bali-style flower bead about every inch. If desired add a few zigzag-shaped glass snake beads. Continue beading until the strand will wrap around your wrist twice.
Repeat the random stringing with the second leather cord strand.
String both leather cord ends through two aluminum cube beads. The second aluminum cube bead should have a hole that will accommodate four pieces of leather.
Form a loop by stringing the leather cord ends back through the final aluminum cube bead. The loop should be larger than the button.
With both leather cord ends together, tie an overhand knot. Trim the cord ends about 1/2 inch from the knot.
To wear the bracelet, wrap both bead strands around your wrist twice, place the leather loop around the button, and pull the leather tail to tighten the loop.
