Here're a couple of leather bracelets of my design. The leather I used is a scrap piece from a local leather furniture manufacturer, and the buckles are from flea market not far from my home. You can look for the whole making process in step-by-step photos here on my "NailDesign" blog:
Kind of neat feature of these bracelets is the central seam on face side. You can see it only if you looking from sides but not from front wich in combination with contrasting colour of thread creates a somewhat unusual effect.
