Today’s tutorial is a quick and easy DIY Leather Wrap Crystal Necklace. This chic boho style necklace can be cute and colorful like mine or you can obviously tone it down a notch using more neutral traditional leather colors.
This fun style requires only a few simple supplies and is extra simple if you make it like I did, all in one piece with no clasp. (See below the video for a complete list of materials and an option for adding a clasp).

Crystal Necklace Supplies:
• Quartz point bead (drilled or not, 1.25 ” or larger)
• Small cabochon OR flat-backed rhinestone (4-5 mm) – optional
• 34-36 inches of real or faux suede leather, 1/8th inch wide (1.5mm thick)
• E6000 adhesive*
• paper towels
*PLEASE read both the health warnings and the directions on the tube. Fumes from this stuff are pretty serious so proceed with caution (and also: drying times may vary depending on climate and humidity).
The first piece of leather I use in the video is about 28 inches long (sorry, forgot to mention that!). Make sure your cute new crystal necklace will be long enough to fit over your head unless you want to add a clasp.
If you would like to make the necklace shorter and add a clasp, you can check out my How to Make a Leather Cord Necklace tutorial for how to do that. Simply cut the long piece of leather into two halves that equal the total length of the necklace you want.
