DIY with Swarovski crystals and natural leather cuff bracelets.

Fresh ideas how to create stylish leather cuff bracelets.

DIY with Swarovski crystals and natural leather cuff bracelets.

..."How can I make it a successful jewelry…?".
That’s the question I always ask myself when I see a good idea.
...So there’s a chance that you’re wondering the same thing?) 
When was the last time you stopped for a few minutes just to try thinking how to take one great idea and make it a success story?
I know you do it…. But most of the time (and it happens intuitively) you are settled with your own path of thinking that in one way or another keeps you away from thinking outside your comfort zone. This is a question I keep asking myself constantly. 
Ok, I know how it sounds - don't worry am not going to sell you anything here - just wanted to share with you some insights I have while speaking with jewelry designers…
Try to take a moment and with clear mind think how you would implement a great idea on the next items....
We know you can think of a fantastic Ideas! 

 


 

 Today 

We will talk about leather products and specifically about cuff leather bracelets.

These are new cuff leather bracelets which are very simple, but at the same time is very versatile. They are suitable for both women and men.

Since we are jewelry designers, let's talk about how to make a stunning design of these bracelets and how easily and quickly improvise having our bases, tools, metal elements and of course our favorite Swarovski crystals.

 

 

I'll tell you at once, it's very simple.

At the beginning, select the base of the leater bracelets (thin or wide).

We suggest you to "play" with the stone settings for Swarovski crystals.

Apply glue on the leather, just  a little, then put the stone setting or metal element and press a little, hold and release. The glue dries quickly, but for complete certainty, it is advisable to wait 24 hours, until the glue is completely dry. Pay attention - too much glue can lead to leaks and stains around the stone settings.

 

When the time has passed and you understand that the base is sitting tight, you can start to embed stones. Use the prongs poosher tool to close the prongs.

We recommend you to make a sketch of placement of stone settings first and, therefore, spread out the bases on the right location - this is just an advice:).

 

 

 Embedding the crystals

Once you have decided on which stone setting to use, and the crystal colors that would be right for that piece, use the prong pusher to bend the metal prongs on the crystals so they can’t move. 

Create a piece of jewelry that will be beautiful, and desirable will always be the main aspiration!

Using stones and crystals is the way to add that sparkle, eye catching color and glamour to your jewelry.

For a truly professional and well made finish use the right tools and glue for jewelry making.
The prong pusher tool is simply a great tool for safely embedding crystals into stone settings.

 

 

We recomend you first to embed the crystals into the stone settings, close and only than to glue it on the leather.

 

 

Also,

another option is to use leather punch tool to make holes, then  can insert jump rings there and hang charms on the rings. This is perhaps the fastest and most youthful option. And you can add chains of different lengths and try to do something like and rock style. Any style, any color, any size, any kind of stone settings - absolutely anything you want.  

 

 

 

 This is your canvas and you are an artist. So create without borders and improvise, because imagination has no borders!:) 

 

 

 

A bunch of metal charms

Start by choosing the metal plating color that would look best with the leather you chose, and pick a bunch of them to use. To see our plating colors click here.
The best thing about charm bracelets, is that you can offer your customers a line of charms that they can choose from, and really make it a personal made piece of jewelry.
