Supplies for Lord of Leather Bracelet

From time to time I receive questions about needed supplies to make this bracelet. The best solution could be to make a kit, but I don't have a space to keep it and it also requires some extra financial resources. So, I have done some search on Etsy and came up with these suggestions.  Important: make sure the beads have holes larger as the small leather cord. Leather is very gentle material, you should be able to sting the beads without using any force. In case, you are not sure about diameter, ask seller to avoid any frustrations later.

Finnish dream earrings

During my last vacation in Lapland with Anne and Lasse, I noticed nice birch wood logs for our open fire and I could not leave the bark from these logs for burning. So, it (bark not logs) went into my luggage. After almost a year the bark was nicely dry and hard, so to get them into the form I would like to have I needed to make the pieces again wet and let to dry, but I was not in the mood to wait for some weeks. Mario came with a great solution- why not to use a micro-oven as it usual in the timber industry. So, you don't need to tell my twice. I found a pencil (so no metal), wrapped wet pieces of bark around, fixed with a thread and put in the micro-oven. But, I forgot about graphite in the pencil, and it is an excellent conductor, so in a second there was a fire in the oven. I was fast- we still have micro-oven, kitchen and house. For the next drying process I used a wooden kitchen spoon and these are earrings.  www.etsy.com/shop/gunadesign
