For this project I used:
9 - 10 inch length of 1/8 inch leather strip
Gold jewelry wire (I used 20 gauge)
2 gold 6mm jump rings
Jewelry pliers (side cutters, needle nose, round)
Tweezers or wax tipped tool
28 -12ss Crystal Swarovski Elements Rhinestones
Cut a piece of gold jewelry wire about 7 inches long. Thread a jump ring through one end of the leather strip folding over the leather strip by about ½ of an inch. Leaving about 2 inches on the end, place your wire alongside your leather strip and begin making coils around your piece of leather, ending with both ends of the wire together. I made 3 coils but the number of coils will depend on the gauge of your wire. You will be making a knot so you need to thread the top wire underneath the coils so that now your wire ends are opposite.
