I've been on a leather kick lately, combined with my love of stitching I've made wrap bracelets and other styles with fine leather lacing.

am I too late to jump on this particular bandwagon?

are the wrap bracelets 'over'?

NO! Lovely bracelets like yours will never be out of fashion <grin>.  Leather bracelets, especially but not only, with natural stones, will always appeal to those with a natural style. Keep up the good work, and best wishes!

thanks for the encouragement! I like the leather/stone combo style. then again, I like the fire-polished rounds with the leather too.

my next project will be to incorporate a watch face ( I have a watch addiction, and a bead addiction and a...)  Wink

You know, fashions come and go, but I always say: make what you like. Chances are, unless you have very strange taste, there's going to be other people out there who like it too. Big Smile... And you definitly don't have wierd taste because these really do look great! (Unless we are all weird Wink ) Personally, I love these. Especially the tan one on the middle.

These are really nice - and way beyond the typical wrap bracelets

Nope, leather is classic and always a good wear :) Besides those aren't just typical leather wrap bracelets! Nicely done!
