Suede Tassel Bracelet
So far I have made tassels out of rope, embroidery floss and nylon string. Today I am going to show you how to make a leather tassel. This one is the simplest of them all to put together. I made this suede leather tassel bracelet to match my last post, the Suede Tassel Necklace. Let me show you how it’s done~
Suede Tassel Bracelet
- Medium Brown Leather Suede string, Brown Suede Lace
- 4 jump rings 7mm & one smaller
- Gold large Lobster claw clasp
- DMC Embroidery String #433
- Flat jewelry pliers
- Hot glue & gun
Cut a 22-inch piece of suede string. Your length may be larger depending on your wrist. Fold it four times and place over the wrist to see how big the bracelet should be. The ends should not touch. You can also make it larger by adding jump rings when you add the clasp.
Add two jump rings to the string and feed one end of the string through twice. See image above.
Fold in half so there are four strings across the wrist. Pulling each jump ring to each end.
Pinch ends and tightly tie the ends in a double knot and wrap with embroidery floss. Add glue to secure the ends of the wrap.
For the Tassel:
Cut three 4 1/2 inch pieces of leather string.
Feed them through a 7mm jump ring. Lay them neatly. I put two strings on the top and one underneath them.
Tie tightly with embroidery string as close to the jump ring as possible. Wrap knot with an extra string. Add a dot of glue to secure the floss.
Trim the tassel. Cover the embroidery thread with another color for an extra pop!
Add the lobster claw clasp to one end. And another extra jump ring to the other end of the bracelet to size. Add the tassel and that’s it!
Super cute! This matching set would make a great gift for Mom on Mother’s Day or gift for any time of the year!

I’ve been admiring this for a while. Finally made one tonight. I wire wrapped the ends, rather than using embroidery floss. A 22 inch piece of leather folded four times, will only fit a wrist size of less than 6 inches, not a “typical “ sized wrist. I had to add additional jump rings in order to be able to close it. Unfortunately, I already cut additional pieces of leather to 22 inches. A 7 inch wrist will require at least 28 inches of leather.
It looks so lovely, you are very talented. I love how detailed the photos are, makes it easier for a rookie like me.
A very creative instruction! And I love that camel color a lot!
