I purchased a wonderful tutorial this summer to create leather infinity links. As soon as I saw the links on Pinterest (yes…I actually DID something I pinned!), I knew they would be a fantastic anchor for my rustic Betty Bracelets and a great way to freshen up their look for fall. I just listed five of these new Infinity Bracelets in my Etsy shop, Serendipity Blu, today. All are crafted with eco-friendly Indonesian recycled glass beads and distressed leather. Here is the round-up:
