Leather necklace DIY

Leather accessories are hot fashion trend now. They are everywhere and I am so excited to share with you all my very first experience with Leather jewelry making and I am happy that it turned out really elegant.



It's very easy to make and because of the gorgeous color of leather cord,, you don't have to work too much on this necklace. So, if you like it and want to make one for yourself. Here you go.

Materials you will need are:-

Leather cord (metallic gold)
Epoxy glue
Metal Cones



Take your leather cord (mine is 3.28 feet long) and measure how you want to layer the look of your necklace and then twist it in middle to make a loop.





Make a simple knot for the necklace to take it on, off.



Take one strand and pull it down.







Tighten the strand to secure the knot.




This is how it will look like.




Take the ends together.




Glue them with Epoxy glue.(not too much because glue will expand).



Secure the metal cone and press the cone so that the glue can set.




Your necklace is pretty much done. Now the beautifying part. I bought this pendant from Michaels a while ago. I took out the loop of the pendant with the pliers.



Cut the black felt to fit the size of the pendant, glued it to the back and attached an alligator clip.



Secure the necklace with it and done. You can change the look with more pendants.


Another look.




This is the whole look of the necklace.


It took me an hour or so to finish this necklace. I really like working with the leather accessory and there are more posts to come. So, watch out for this space:-). Do send me a picture if you made one. Let me know your views. Happy crafting.
