In the 1950's, we called these ladder stitched bracelets and we did not have the selection of beads we have today. And we were limited to black leather shoe laces. Never thought I would say I am thankful for colored leather. Here are some of the photos.

I added two loops at the end so that both me and my daughter
can wear this (she has a larger wrist).
The two loops make it adjustable.
If you would like to try any of these, see our tutorial under videos in the top menu bar. You can find a great selection of leather at Bead Street - probably about 20 colors or so. We also have some of these bracelets on display so you can get a closer look. If you need any help, you can either email or stop into the store.
