Bracelet with Leather Cord and TierraCast® Rivets
Sandstone Z-Hook Bracelet
To determine bracelet size, measure wrist and add 2 inches. Trim leather strap to that length. Example: For 7-inch wrist, trim leather to 9 inches. If you like your bracelets roomy, add 2-1/2 inches.
Use a pencil to make a mark 1/4 inches from one end of the leather strap.
Thread the strap 1 inch through the closed end of the Z-Hook.
Fold leather over and use the leather punch to make a 2.5mm hole through both layers.
Place a rivet post through the holes from the back. Place a Twist spacer over the post. Cover with rivet cap. Squeeze together to engage rivet components.
Place bottom of post onto bench block. Place concave side of rivet setter onto cap and strike with hammer until set.
Repeat Steps 2 - 6 for other end of the Z-Hook, unhooking from the leather before setting the rivet.
To open and close the bracelet, simply slide the leather loop in and out of the open end of the Z-Hook.
Congratulations--you have completed a Sandstone Z-Hook Bracelet! Use additional rivets as decorative elements. Simply place as desired and repeat riveting steps to attach.
