7 Wrap Aphrodite

Handout


Project Info:

Level: All

Estimated time: 2-3 Hours

Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Karen Marshall
There’s a certain romance to this sumptuous 7 Wrap Tahoe…and it’s no wonder the inspiration behind it is the goddess of love and beauty. Aphrodite’s passionate nature is often portrayed in pinks…but we think this combination of a jewel-tone dripping with copper and silver makes for a more sophisticated take on amour. Wear it on your next night out with your special someone, maybe the mythological magic of Aphrodite will make an appearance. Project by Janice Parsons

It’s easy to build in just a few hours...just be sure you cut your leather long enough. (See the Project Map below for details) and Download the Handout (PDF) to follow along. Also, shopping is so easy when you use the SHOP and TOOLS tabs above!

Project Map

Be sure to read through the handout for 5 Wrap Tahoe, but cut your leather longer to make it a 6-7 wrap bracelet. This sample uses

                 3-¼ yards of 1.5mm leather                    2 yards 1.0mm leather

Measure your wrist before you start. This sample is approximately 50-54 inches, including the clasp. It will fit a 7 inch wrist. Each section of beads starts and ends with smaller beads to help facilitate the inner leather strand staying inside frames of outer leather. A pair of Chain Nose Pliers was used to crimp the Transition beads. Keep the beadwork a bit loose so there’s some air on the leather. Otherwise, just place the Embrace the Lotus Charm wherever you like, unless you want to wear it long as a necklace, then it’s important you position it at the halfway point from the clasp. We hope you enjoy!
