I would like a multiple strand leather bracelet with pearls. I have seen this style somewhere but can't seem to find any online options. Thanks for you advice and inspiration:)

Here is a gorgeous https://www.pearl-guide.com/forum/members/caitlin-albums-jeremy-s-pearls-picture13888-suede-bracelet.html custom bracelet that Pearl Paradise designer Hisano made for Caitlin. You may have seen a photo of it here on the forum.

Sheryl does gorgeous Tahitians on leather that can be worn as a bracelet or necklace: http://www.etsy.com/listing/82076346/tahitian-pearl-leather-scarf

Here's one I sold before Christmas with freshwater pearls: http://www.etsy.com/transaction/60897493

Do you want a piece that combines chain or metal also?

Thanks Pattye!
The design from Pearl Paradise is exactly what I'm looking for! It should be relatively easy to contact them and have a similar one made? I love this design:D

Just an update, I decided to buy some inches of PP multicolor 7.5-8mm Freshadamas and will attempt to recreate the bracelet myself! It should be interesting! I purchased enough length to make an all pearl bracelet if the other design proves to be too challenging. Wish me luck:)


Just to post my original inspiration, From the movie Country Strong

Sorry its not a good picture but I am going for the edgy leather and pearl layered look:)

Do you have a drill? The pearls that are pre-drilled for strands have smaller holes, approx .7mm or less depending on pearl size. Most leather width are at least 1mm. Without a drill, you'll be reaming manually with a ream and that will be a loooooooong time. PP offers drilling service for loose pearls http://www.pearlparadise.com/Drilling2311.aspx

Thanks Kathy,
I didn't think about hole size... I do have access to a Dremel if it comes down to it but have no experience in drilling pearls.
