Try This Free Riveting Bracelet Making Project

Feb 15, 2013

Design by Tracy Gonzales (for TierraCast)

Everywhere you look, leather jewelry is a hot trend. At Bead Fest Philadelphia last summer, I saw lots of leather jewelry-making supplies, from the wonderful "licorice" leather for making fun beaded bracelets to fish leather for bead embroidery and mixed media jewelry.

Tracy Gonzales from our friends at Tierra Cast designed this great leather bracelet making project for anyone who wants to learn about using metal rivets and leather. It works up in just a snap!

Materials:

  • 9-10" 5/8" flat leather, 2-2.5mm thick
  • 1 TierraCast Spiral & Rivets Link
  • 1 TierraCast Line 20 (approx. 13mm) Spiral Snap Cap
  • 1 Line 20 Snap Fastener
  • 4 TierraCast 4mm Cap Compression Rivets
  • 2 TierraCast 10mm Hammertone LH Bead
  • E6000 Adhesive or similar

Tools

  • Revolving punch pliers or other tool for making holes in leather
  • Snap setter tool
  • Rivet setter tool
  • Dot/snap anvil
  • Bench block (optional)
  • Hammer
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Step by Step Instructions:

Make a pencil mark in the center of the leather strap about ½" from end. Use revolving punch pliers to make a hole approximately the same size as the snap component posts at the mark. This will be the hole for the button/cap part of the snap.

Keeping this end on top, wrap leather around wrist to determine fit, then mark the leather where the hole for the bottom snap component will be. Punch a second hole at this mark.
Set snaps according to package instructions.

Place the Spiral & Rivets link at the center of bracelet. Place one 10mm Hammertone LH spacer on each side of link. Mark holes with pencil. Punch 2.5mm holes at each mark.

To rivet the components to the leather, set a post component through a hole from the underside of the leather. Place a metal component onto the post on the top side. Place a rivet cap onto post and squeeze the two components gently to engage.

Set post onto block or dot anvil (flat side). Place the concave side of the rivet setter tool over the rivet cap and use a hammer or mallet to set.

Put a small dab of E6000 on the inside of the Spiral snap cap and set it securely over the snap button/cap. Allow to dry. Trim excess leather as desired.

Steampunk!

I love steampunk jewelry. It is so interesting, refreshing, and freeform. Combining romance, gadgets, gizmos and doodads makes for some fantastically interesting and fun jewelry.

I have just learned bead weaving and am addicted. I try to bead almost every day and have taught and infected my niece with the bead weaving bug too! The last time I was at my local bead store I saw they had some lengths of beautiful dyed leather, some with rhinestones too, and findings that fit perfectly. It was a tough choice but I settled on enough to make a bracelet only by telling myself that the next time I was there I would buy another set. I love the leather bracelet you made in the tutorial above and would like to try my hand at riveting. Winning  the Tierra Cast findings would most certainly be FUN!

I've discovered toothed lock washers and love using them as links for bracletes longer drop necklaces.  I like to make jewelry that the wearer can see.  They work great linked with beaded links, strung or stitched links.  They also look great beading around them and then using them for links.  This kit would provide lots of great additions to these pieces of jewelry, I'd love to win a pack from Tierra Cast!

I've been making jewelry for a long time and believe it or not never had much call for unisex jewelry til recently. The materials I have found at Tierra Cast have made my designing so much easier. I look forward to their new ideas and materials such as the cold connectors, rivets, etc. I know old dogs can learn new tricks with such innovative companies available. I love not only their materials but their videos and instructions are the clearest descriptions of how to utilize those new ideas. I would love the opportunity to create with this gift selection and continue my new design love which has been so well received. Tierra Cast is my favorite company in my quest for innovative sources.

I am just learning the beginnings of the how to do things but know I will truly love the outcme of it all.

I would enjoy. Working with tierra cast components,you have a very nice selection, and a great combination, of materials, I love the leather combo, I love making mixed media jewelry.i think a strip of beadloom gems would be a great combo with the leather and rivets, if I win your sample I am working on that project next.

My favorite of the newer trends is the use of leather and ribbon alone or in combination with traditional "hard' components such as beads or chain - for a couple of reasons: These materials are less expensive than many of the chain types - especially silver, and more importantly; they lend a softer feel feel and/or pleasing contrast to traditional materials (ribbon) while the leather adds an earthy natural feel to a piece.

This is a cool bracelet and I love the components. It has been a LONG time since I made any jewelry with leather.

The project looks like a challenge to me. But I like learning new techniques and trying new projects, so I'd give it a try. I also wouldn't mind winning a TierraCast package.

I am not sure just how new it is, but I love knitting with wire to make lacey jewlery. I loved knitting as a child and when I first saw a piece of knitted jewelry...I FEEL IN LOVE!

I love this bracelet - I also liked a commenter's idea to change up the color of leather and the metals and/or patina. I would very much like to win some Terracast goodies! Thanks!

A friend just asked me to make bracelets for her and her daughter out of an old braided leather belt. I think these findings would get my creativity flowing!
