:jawdrop: I cannot believe you cut these by hand and not with a laser cutter.  Insanity!

How did you keep these cuts so clean? 8-O How did you make the negative space? Did you take your swivel knife or something more like a box cutter to make these cuts? (flails)

This is a superb design. You've set the rivets very well. :D

I use this type of blade www.thepostalsupplies.com/stor…
After cutting edges burned one by one using pyrography tool and finally looks clean and smooth.

The design is amazing~ :love: How thick is the leather you used? It must be thick, because the knots have to keep its own shape.. xD Mmm, now I have another "I wanna make this" craft. +_+

Thank you very much, glad you like them!
Leather is about 3,5 mm thick and the secret to cut leather right and have clear cuts is to replace your blade every 5-6 cuts.
Don't try to cut you lines at once. You need to be extra careful and patient to cut those little parts of leather ;)

Ohhh. o-o! Thank you for the tips! =D I stropped my leather whenever it felt dull, but I guess it's better to just change it... x3

You're welcome! It's better to use an extra sharp blade for this work

Very pretty.
How do they feel in terms of rigidity?
Might I ask what thickness of leather you used when making them, I'm guessing around the 3mm mark.

Because of so many cuts, bracer is stable but flexible as well. 
Leather is about 3,5 mm thick.
