Steps

  1. Trim leather remnant if desired (smaller bracelet: 2.25”, larger bracelet: 2.5”).
  2. Center focal link on top of remnant. Mark holes with pencil. Use leather punching tool to make 2mm hole at each mark.
  3. Center link on remnant again. Insert one 5.3mm eyelet down through hole at one end and through leather underneath.
  4. Turn stack of components over and place eyelet flange side down onto anvil.
  5. Position setter into end of eyelet and tap with hammer until set. (See setter instructions.)
  6. Repeat Steps 3-5 at other end of link.
  7. Make centered pencil mark 3/16” from each end of remnant. Punch 2mm holes where marked.
  8. Place one washer onto one 3.7mm eyelet, then insert eyelet through hole at one end. Add second washer at the back.
  9. Repeat Steps 4-5.
  10. Repeat Steps 8-9 at other end.
  11. Determine how many chain links you need for each side of bracelet and divide chain accordingly. (6 links per side = 6 ½” bracelet, 8 per side = 7 ½” bracelet (approx.)
  12. Open end link of one piece of chain and attach to eyelet at one end of remnant. Repeat on other side.
  13. Use two jumprings to attach clasp bar to one end of bracelet and one jumpring to attach clasp ring to other end.
  14. Create slight curve in focal link using your hands or bending pliers.
