Here's a tutorial to show you how to wire wrap leather ends! Use this technique to attach leather to a clasp or other finding in your jewelry design. This particular technique works great for flat leather and suede laces!
Step 1: Cut about 5" of 22 gauge wire. Bend the wire over about 1/8" for the end, creating a hook.
Step 2: Fold the leather around the clasp and back onto itself. Place the wire hook so that the wire end is tucked in between the folded leather. Crimp the wire down with chain nose pliers.
Step 3: Wrap the wire tightly around the doubled thickness of leather and continue wrapping 5 or 6 times.
Step 4: Bring the wire underneath the leather tail so that the wire lays in between the folded leather.
Step 5: Snip the wire with wire cutters, leaving a 1/8" tail.
Step 6: Crimp the wire down with chain nose pliers, making sure that the wire end is tucked tightly in between the folded leather.
