DIY Leather Bracelets: Word Bands and Lashed Chains

Rings & Things is one of the popular online stores for finding jewelry making materials. Honestly, it’s one of those online stores that I often visit to look for unique designs for beads. Their DIY jewelry making projects are also interesting. Not the usual beading and wirework jewelries but they have that cool and funky style that makes me want to try each project, especially their leather inspired jewelries.
