Project Map

Red Hibiscus is a 4-wrap sample which is 29 inches in length measured from the button shank to the end of the button loop. It will wrap four times around a 7 inch wrist. Modify the length or add a second button loop to make it adjustable for a wrist smaller or larger than 7 inches. There are enough beads in the Ingredients List to make it a 5 wrap. If you want to make it longer cut your leather 2-1/2 yards, rather than 2 yards, and adjust your pattern for the additional wrap.

  1. Silk Wrap
  2. Ladder a random pattern of five Tiles and two rows of 8/0 seed beads.

  3. Add your new piece of Tuff Cord, as needed. It’s best to start it in a row of 8/0 seed beads.

  4. Adding a charm is optional before you end with a Silk Wrap.

  5. Silk Wrap after your button loop and tie knots in leather ends.

Please Note: Although many of our older videos and handouts demonstrate the use of a Thread Burner, we no longer feel it is imperative to use when beading. As long as you apply glue to the ending knot and the portion of the leather beneath the knot, you’ll be fine. Allow 3 hours for the glue to dry before carefully cutting excess cord away with flush cutters. And with the C-Lon Silk Wrap protecting the Tuff Cord, your design is secure.
