Make it Manly: DIY Men’s Leather Jewelry

This post is sponsored by LeatherCord USA.DIY Men's Leather Jewelry How toMake it manly–You don’t know how long I’ve wanted to have a DIY men’s finding line called that!  Haha.

Macrame with leather and beadsHonestly, the possibilities are endless.  This is just your basic DIY macrame’ bracelet with leather.  Two sizes of round leather cord were used too–1mm brown and 2mm natural blue.  This makes it a little more special.  Use a bead or don’t and it will look great!

I’m the extra fancy one around here.  Yin and yang.
