Ladder Stitch Bracelet. Best tutorial I’ve found for this ever. DIY Ladder Stitch Bracelet. This tutorial is so good because unlike lots of tutorials I see, this has the amount of cord and thread you’ll need whether it’s a 1 wrap or 5 wrap bracelet. There’s also a really good video that’s helpful for people like me who learn visually. Tutorial and video at Lima Beads here.
Genuine leather is an excellent choice for bracelet making. I generally separate four types of leather bracelets - cuff bracelets, thin wrist bands, braided bracelets (including Sami bracelets) and creative designed ones (sometimes mix of all three). Different designs are offered for men and women various in size and shape, however I feel that most of them can be unisex unless any feminine details (such as flowers, hearts etc) are specially added.
