Alternative leather

Post by Fuzzyfeet on Mon Jun 20, 2016 9:44 pm

I love the look of the Troll leather bracelets, but I struggle with them, the lock is difficult to do up, even with a split ring in the teeny tiny hole.  Then all the beads seem to end up all together under my wrist halfway through the day, and if I put rubber stoppers beside the beads to stop them moving the stoppers leave a dent in the leather.............so this is what I have been wearing for the last few weeks.

These are double wrap versions





A single wrap compared to the Troll single leather
(I slide the rubber stoppers up to the knot to keep it secure when its on)



And a four wrap, which when worn looks similar to the standard Troll leather



I'm enjoying these, they are easy to put on, easy to change beads, as secure as a Troll leather, and much much cheaper  Wink

How big are the rubber stoppers that you use?
Thanks.
