- 1 x tube of 6/0 Round – Cobalt Blue TSL MA (#20F)
- 1 x tube of 6/0 Silver Plate All Metal Seed Beads

- 1 x Magnetic Acrylic Clasp 22×8.5mm – Chrome Shiny
- Super New Glue
1). Cut three pieces of leather on a diagonal. Your final pieces will be: 16 inches, 18 inches and 20 inches. Leave each one at least an inch longer on the first cut, as not all the cobalt blue beads fit easily and I recommend that you trim little bits off as you go, so the leather stays firm, on a diagonal. When you are done you can finish it off with a straight edge.
2). Put your beads on the leather in any way that is pleasing to you! Again, not all the cobalt blue beads fit on the leather (I found that about half did not). Just use the ones that easily fit. If you want to follow this pattern, you can see what I did here:
3). Open up your clasp. Put one to two drops of glue inside, insert your leather all at once, in a cluster (carefully so that the glue doesn’t spill out). Hold it for about 30 seconds.
