Lately there has been a lot of requests for ideas on what type of jewelry to make for men. So today I’ll show you this men’s leather bracelet with a faux stone polymer clay bead and handmade wire findings.
I would love to have some more ideas for making jewlery and small gift items for men. That’s a great idea – my son wears bracelets so I could make him something with leather too. ~Cheryl-H
That’s what I would like to get more of, ideas for male or unisex jewelry. I can come up with many ideas for jewelry for women but really really hit a block when it comes to designs for men. I don’t understand why I would have such a hard time designing for myself. ~Ken-H
Other than the two silver Bali beads, this bracelet is completely hand made. The leather lace was cut from an old leather coat, the ‘granite’ bead was made using the faux pebble bead technique, the hook was made of copper wire and the cord ends were made of gunmetal steel.
The bracelet is a simple, natural looking design that is both tough and masculine that will suit a down to earth kind of guy. Nothing too fussy to get in the way but with just the right amount of personality to be noticed.
If there is interest, I can teach you how to make the cord endings. They can be made in any metal wire and used on any cord or ribbon. Knowing how to make these simple wire findings could help save you a lot of money and give your pieces a very custom look by being able to match the wire to your jewelry.
So, let me know if you’re interested in learning how to make these wire cord ends and I’ll put it on the list for future tutorials.
