Designer Tips


  • Measure the distance from the centermost point of the ball chain (this size is .25") and mark the increments on the back of the leather bracelet.
  • Use an awl to pierce holes in the leather in the places you marked. If you have a sewing machine, you can pierce the leather bracelet using an unthreaded sewing machine.
  • Stitch the ball chain onto the bracelet using Griffin silk cord (which has a built-in brass needle). 
Make one, or make 100's! This ball chain is available by the full spool, or by the single foot. See below for both options.
