Book Description

Bringing the popular art of leather braiding into the 21st century in this beginner’s guide to making contemporary coiled and knotted jewellery and accessories

Leather braiding is an ancient form of art that uses just a few simple knots and cords to create beautiful jewellery and accessories. In this new book, the owners of the chic and established Magnolia Braiding Company have brought leather braiding to the modern day with a collection of stunning projects that rely on just a few simple techniques. 

Starting with advice on the leather cords to use and the essential techniques you need to start designing your pieces, you can then delve straight into the brilliant variety of braiding projects from rings and neckwear to key fobs and wrist straps for watches.

Few specialist tools are required and the leather cord is readily available from craft stores. All of the projects use classic three-string or four-string braid designs, and the addition of decorative knots or store-bought findings give the braids a professional, elegant finish making these perfect pieces for beginners to make for family and friends. 

Hand leather braiding is an easy and rewarding art to pick up and explore, and once you begin you’ll be inspired to start creating your own beautiful twisted pieces that will impress you and your loved ones.
