Make the Bracelet
In this class, Elke shares her technique for making a braided leather bracelet from one connected piece of leather (And yes, it is quite magical). This is a great class for learning some leather-working basics, like how to cut leather, bevel edges, and use a leather hole punch. Have fun experimenting with widths and colors to make bracelets in several different styles. Check out a cool timelapse of Elke making the magic braid here
