    Homemade strap on original bracelet clasp

    I made the prototype below, just to see if it could be done.
    From a mechanical/practical point of view, it works beautifully

    The strap is made from an old piece of leather I had around, and it's only a try out.
    For a "real one", I need some other leather, leather DYE, and of course needle and thread to make stitches and all that.

    But what do you guys think - does it look good with leather + clasp?

    Looks good so far to me, but make it thicker!

    Funny to read your post, i was looking to buy a strap recently and it got me thinking about making my own. Buying the tools is relatively inexpensive. I'm gonna make a couple around christmas and see how they go.

    Keep it up mate, this way you get what you want.

    No doubt I'm gonna make it thicker. But most of all, I was curious to see if the "concept" would work

    Good luck on yours - looking forward to seeing the results
