About Leather Cord

Leather cord is super versatile and ideal for everyday wear. Our leather cord is 100% genuine leather and available in 6 different thicknesses ranging from a dainty 0.5mm perfect for plaiting and weaving to a much more robust 5mm in diameter ideal for creating chunky leather bracelets for both men and women. As well as a large selection of sizes, we also stock a huge collection of colours in metallic, glossy and distressed finishes, so whether you are looking for something super shiny with a touch of glam, or a leather cord with more of a worn finish to create a more bohemian earthy finish we have the perfect leather cord for you.

Finishing off leather cord

  • 0.5mm, 1mm & 1.5mm leather cord – use 2x5mm box closer with lobster clasp or 4mm box closers, you may have to fold the end over for the box closer to have more to grab onto you can even add a touch of jewellery glue for extra hold.
  • 2mm & 3mm leather cord – Use 5x7mm box closers with extension chain or 4mm box closers.
  • 5mm leather cord - our magnetic tube end cap clasps fit this leather cord perfectly, simply add a dab of glue to ensure a secure fit.
  • Braided or multi stranded leather cord – bell closers, ribbon clamps or box closers are all ideal to use with braided or weaved leather depending on thickness of the leather you are braiding.

Jewellery Making Ideas

Leather cord accessories look great as both day wear and evening wear, it is the perfect material for creating simple necklaces and bracelets and looks really expensive. Why not try making an alternative charm bracelet by plaiting three lengths of 1mm leather cord and gluing the ends into a bell closer, when it’s dry add your charms with jump rings linking them between the braid.
