It was fun to make and you could use items you already have and not go out and purchase anything new. Instead of using the silver end caps, just wrap all three pieces of leather with 20 gauge wire to secure and then add your clasp. The beads are fun and add a bit of color, but if this was for a man, I would leave them off or use minimal beads...maybe just some sterling silver on the leather versus the dangles. This is definitely something you can have fun with. Here is the link to the post with the full tutorial.
