Regaliz Licorice Leather

Regaliz means Licorice in Greek. Pronounced reg-AH-leez, with a hard g like peg.  This wonderfully useful leather is shaped like a licorice rope, flattened on the bottom side and curved on the top side, sort of D shaped in profile, and is very easy to make fashionable bracelets with, which you might see in high end department stores selling for high prices. Now you can make your own, make some to give as gifts too, and for a very affordalbe price.

 

The leather is 10mm by 6mm (some variance can be expected) sold in 1" increments to make it easy for you to order just what you want!  Leather is a natural product and as such will sometimes have small spots or minor irregularities, and the color can vary slightly, especially with the distressed colors. As leather is cut to order it is not returnable.

 

Tips for Success:

 

We recommend the cutter we sell, it is very safe and easy to use and cuts a nice straght cut everytime, I was so impressed when I saw how easy it is to get a perfect cut. 

 

Generally start with at least a 7" length as this allows for the width of the bracelet to curve gracefully, also easier on the clasps. If too tight the magnetic clasps are taxed and may pop open under the stress.  

 

We offer a special Super Glue designed to work with leather and metals, and it holds really well. It is a cyanoacrylate, in the same family as Crazy Glue and other super glues. It bonds fast, very fast and will bond skin too so be careful to keep it off your skin. The glue is a bit runny, so if you end up using too much you can quickly dab it off with a tissue, just be quick.

 

To affix a clasp to the leather, add the glue to the clasp, stick the leather in and hold for a couple of seconds then let go to make sure your fingers are not included, dab off any excess and continue letting it cure for a few minutes. At this point add any sliders and beads before gluing on the second side of the clasp, then go on to the second side of the clasp, repeating the steps. Be sure that you have the two clasp sides applied properly to fasten, double check before gluing because afterwards will be too late! The beads will slide around a bit so you might consider gluing them in place. Just slide them a bit to one side and add a drop of glue, slide the bead into place and hold for 30 seconds or so. 

 

You can choose to make a bangle instead of a bracelet, one without a clasp by cutting the leather so that it fits over the widest part of your hand, and add a bead to cover the join, gluing the bead and the cuts together at one time. Its best to use a wider bead to be sure you are allowing enough surface area to make the join a success. 

 

You can also consider making a chocker, or a wrap bracelet, and don't forget to make a bracelet for your favorite guy! With the right slider these can be very attractive on men. 

 

Remember that the clasps will add to the finished length of the bracelet so be sure to accomodate the extra. 

 

The leather can be drilled and riveted, to add additional accents to your piece.
