Just Peachy Leather Necklace Tutorial

Created by: Bridget Austin

Designer Tips

  • See the Jewelry Basics 101 PDF for hints and instructions on how to open and close jump rings.
  • The cord ends and barrel beads are all crimped, no glue required!
  • Start with 2 strands of leather cut to the desired length of your necklace.
  • String all 4 barrel beads onto the leather.
  • Attach cord ends to each end of the necklace and crimp tightly with the nylon jaw pliers.
  • Attach the hook and eye clasp with 2 jump rings to the cord ends.
  • Space the beads out evenly and crimp down on the leather to keep their place.
  • Place the rivoli stone in the setting and pinch it closed at the top to secure.
  • Attach the pinch bail to the stone setting and close tightly around the leather cord with the nylon pliers.
