Finishing Leather Ends

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to make wrapped loops.

Pattern Description:

I really like to make jewelry with leather cord and this is a great alternative to purchasing the crimp ends for leather. Wire wrapping your leather ends does not cost as much as the crimp ends cost and it is a lot more fun to do! Once you have the general idea down, be creative - there are lots of variations that can be created with this simple technique.

Materials:

  • 6" 20-gauge round dead soft wire
  • Leather cord of desired length

You Will Also Need:

  • Flush cutters
  • Chain nose pliers
  • 12" ruler
