  • flat leather cord

    Hi,
    I would like to make a round plaited leather bracelet to hold pandora style beads.
    Does anyone know where I can find good quality leather? I think the leather cord needs to be flat to get the round braid to work.

    I don't know what size the cord will need to be. i have found some on ebay which is 5mm. would this be ok to end up with a round plait the right size for large hole beads?

    I also would like to finish it with a sterling silver clasp...

    any help would be great

    I have a couple of the leather plaited bracelets and the cord is flat 1mm. It's 4 cords plaited together.
    5mm cord will be way too thick.

      oooh :/ Thanks
      do you mean the cord is 1mm wide? the thinnest I have been able to find is 3mm x 1mm. I guessed that the 1mm was how thick is was but I guess it could be the other way around?..
