Magnetic Clasps for Regaliz

Magnetic clasp for Oval leather cord

On my last buying trip to Athens Greece, I noticed some findings I’d never seen before. The holes were much too big for standard 1.8 or 2mm leather, so I asked my supplier about them.
The sales Clark proceeded  to show me a thick, supple leather with a rectangular cross section, about 1cm by 1/2cm.

There were many eye-popping colors available, and several dozens of components like the ones I saw with the big holes, specifically for this kind of leather. This, she explained, is the hot new item in Greek jewelry.  DIY jewelry artists find it easy to work with, and given the professional-looking finished results, it’s quite addictive! Apparently, my supplier couldn’t keep the stuff on the shelf.

Naturally, I was skeptical, so I brought some samples back to my daughter in Ohio.
Without any back story, I showed her the leather and findings and asked her what she thought.
“Dad, you got it right! These are so cool! It would look good even without any of the add-on embellishments, just as a strap with clasps. I love these magnetic clasps. You can even make the “masculine-looking” jewelry some of our customers have bugged us about with this!”

Deferring to her superior fashion sense, I put in an order. And, what would you know, we soon had to re-order to keep up with demand. We think you will love the oval leather and findings. Order a sample today; and don’t worry, we made sure we have extra on hand for when you’re ready to order more!

You only need a few tools to get started, and chances are, you already have them. A cutter and a pair of pliers. Any kind of pliers will do, Making necklaces with leather cord is easy, and it can become a source of extra income that you can make from the comfort of your own home.as long as they feel comfortable in your hand.
Braided Leather Cord Necklace
You can make simple necklaces with a single cord, with or without a pendant; or you can make more elaborate necklaces with multiple cords and beads. Here’s how to make a simple, single cord necklace with a pendant:

You will need your tools, a length of leather cord (1.8-2 mm in diameter), a pendant, end coils and a clasp. Before you start, it is a good idea to slide the pendant onto the leather cord you will be using to make sure that the cord is not too thick.
A standard length for a necklace is about 18” but you may want to measure it around your neck (or if you are making it for someone else, around their neck) so that you can determine what length will look best. If you do this, measure the cord with the pendant on to see where the pendant will fall. Once you have cut the leather cord to the desired length, you can get started on putting the necklace together.

First, insert one end of the cord into one of the coils, trying to push it all the way in. With the pliers, crimp the last loop of the coil, putting just enough pressure to secure the coil so the cord does not slip out when you pull on it. Be careful not to use too much pressure as this can damage or cut the cord. (This takes a bit of practice; you may damage a coil or two at first, but with practice you will develop your technique and have perfect crimps every time.)

My technique is to make the crimp in two steps. First, I squeeze the coil, leaving the very end of the loop intact. Then, I squeeze again, turning the pliers counterclockwise, and this time including the end of the coil. This creates a very strong bond, making it nearly impossible for the cord to pull out.

Once you have attached the first coil, slide the pendant on and use the same technique to crimp the other end coil to the cord. It’s that easy! Enjoy!

How to attach leather cord into the end caps

Posted on by 4 comments

Please go to the plugin admin page to set up your ad code.

Now, on to a sticky subject–how to attach a 2mm leather cord into the end cap.  You will need Super Glue.  I suggest Loctite.  It can be found in almost any superstore and probably any hardware store.  There are two types.  The regular and the Precision Max.  The Precision Max take longer to dry, about 15 seconds.  I suggest it because it you goof up, you have a chance to pull the cord out and try again.

Step One:  Before any gluing, you must make sure that the end of the cord will fit easily into the cap.  If it doesn’t, you must rub the end of the cord hard enough to make it a little skinnier.  Once it will slip in easily, you are ready to glue.

Step Two:  You will need an old cleaning rag for your lap or table and nail polish remover. The nail polish remover must be Acetone.  The non-acetone remover will not work.

Step Three:  When using 3mm, and bigger, caps we tell you to put one drop of glue into the cap. Unfortunately, if you try to do this into the 2mm cap, you will get glue all over the cap as well as your fingers.  So we do an alternate method:

1.  Squeeze a tiny bit of glue directly to the end of the cord.

2.  Slip it into the cap and immediately swipe the capped end on the cleaning towel,
to remove any excess that might have slipped out.  If glue has stuck to the outside
of the cap and/or to your fingers, wet a piece of the cleaning rag with the acetone
and clean off your fingers and the outside of the metal cap.  Don’t get the acetone
on the leather.  It will take the color off the leather.  (However, if you do take the
color off, just dab it with a black permanent marker.  The best is Bic’s Tuxedo
Black.)

3.  If everything looks good–the cord is in the cap–lay it aside and start the next one.
DO NOT pull on it to test it.

4.  If it didn’t slip into the cap, pull it out immediately and clean off the end of the end
and try again.  STARTING AT STEP ONE.  If the end won’t fit back into the cap,
you may have to cut off that tiny part of the end that has the glue on it.

Step Five:  When they are all done, you must test them, starting with the first ones that you finished.  Hold the cap firmly in your fingers and pull on the cord.  If it does not pull out, you have made it!  If the cord pulls out you go back to Step One and may have to snip off the very end.

Step Six:  If all else fails, don’t call 911.  Call me at (937) 629-0301
Don’t Panic.   By your third cord you will probably completely proficient.

Straightening Leather Cord

We often get asked how we get the bends and wrinkles out of the leather that has been folded into hanks or wound around spools.  I’ve been making leather necklaces for over 20 years and believe me, they sell much better when they fall nicely curved.  Eye appeal is important!  Here’s what I do to straighten or shape the cords.  Please, if anyone does it another way, let the rest of  know.

If I’m using 1.8mm to 2mm thickness, I cut my cords, attach the coils and clasp to one end, bundle the free ends of the cords together with a rubber band (not too tight) and then run them under very hot water for about 10 seconds.  Then I either hang them or lay them flat, pushing them together in a straight pile, and let them dry.  When I join the two ends together with these prepared cords, they make smooth, rounded necklaces.

For leather cord 3mm and above, I make the completed cord, wet it under hot water, then shape it into a nice round form.  Usually I then place cups, glasses, salt shakers, or whatever to hold down the parts of the necklace that won’t stay flat.  Once it dries, it holds its new shape and looks very professional.

The great advantage  of the “Slide Knot” technique is that it is easy to make and you don’t need any metal ends, hooks,  clasps or tools.  All you is need a piece of cord and a couple of beads. You can make necklaces,  bracelets or anklets.

Using the “Slide Knot” technique I made this adjustable bracelet.  A knot on each side is preventing the beads from moving.

The material used are:
