Thread the leather through the center of the large chain maille piece in the same place where the mandrel was. Position the chain maille with equal distance to the ends of the leather.
To begin wrapping one end of the chain maille, take the wire and leaving a 1" (2.5cm) tail make a wrap around the leather at the point where the chain maille ends. The tail end should be on the side of the chain maille and the long end towards the end of the bracelet.
Make this as tight as you can and keep wrapping the tail so there are 2-3 wraps. Trim the tail and squash the end flat.
