Designer Tip: SEE VIDEO LINKS BELOW. Cut the 2mm leather in half. Double one piece over and tie a Larks Head knot around the end of the bar; repeat on other side of bar. Center bar on leather. Use the 1mm leather to tie three sets of coil knots on either side of the bar around the 20mm and 2mm leather but do not glue back of knot yet. Glue the 20mm leather into the larger side of the clasp, noting that this part of the clasp is open: it may be preferable to put the glue on the leather rather than into the clasp to ensure the latch assembly does not get glued closed. Check the size and trim leather if needed before gluing second side. Center bar and place a drop of glue on the 2mm leather just on the other side of the Larks Head knot and slide the coil knot over it to keep the bar centered. Close the clasp and trim the 2mm leather flush with the clasp. Place a drop of glue on the 2mm leather right next to the clasp and slide the last coil knot flush with the clasp. Repeat on other side. Adjust middle coil knot. Trim and glue the tails of the coil knots on the inside of the bracelet.
