Tuesday Tips and Tricks!

Today’s tip is a cautionary tale! I recently made a quick bracelet with one of our new E Hooks and a leather strap by TierraCast®, but I forgot to check the size of my loop before setting my rivets. This was one time eyeballing the project didn’t work!

These hooks are a great way to finish ribbon, leather strap and even bead weaving projects, but don’t make my mistake! Test the size of your loop before setting it permanently. When I remade my bracelet I used small binder clips to hold the loop in place while I made sure the hook could move in and out of it easily. Taking the time to test your loop will save you from having to cut a bracelet off of yourself later!

Happy Tuesday! – Gretchen
