Round Leather Braid Necklace

I am having so much fun playing with the leather samples I bought from a furniture store. Think old purse, leather jacket, etc. for this project if you don't have access to samples.
I wanted lacing but I only had flat leather. I found that if I cut out a circle (in this case 7" in diameter) and cut that into a spiral I could get about 20 feet of leather lacing.
It isn't straight but if you soak it in warm water until it is saturated, squeeze out the excess water and stretch it out, you can have a nice straight piece. (I tied one end to a door handle and the other to a table leg and left it to dry for a few hours)
Cut it into 4 equal pieces and tie together with a piece of twine.

  I clipped my bundle to a breadboard
 Spread out the four pieces. At this point I watched this video about 10 times before I attempted this. I'll warm you that this is just like 3 strand braiding but backwards (kind of). My poor brain and hands wanted to follow the 3 strand braid I was used to all of the time. I really had to concentrate. Once you get it, though, you get it.

1. First you take the second strand from the left and cross it over the second from the right. (make sure that you always have the finished side of the leather facing out)

Secondly you take the far left strand around the back and take it under the two middle strands.
2. Then you fold it over the one next to it.
3. Next you take the far right strand around the back middle strands

4. and fold it over the one next to it.

Continue on using step 2-4 until you reach the desired length.
This is what you end up with. Since I hand cut the lacing with scissors, the strands were less than perfect; thick here and thin there. None of that matters with the finished product. 
I took a 3" piece of copper wire (found in the electrical department of my hardware store)
 With needle nose pliers I formed this hook shape and and "S" shape.
I pounded them flat on a piece of steel to harden the metal and make it a bit more professional looking.
I threaded on a large bead and wrapped wire around a pen to make the copper beads. I divided the four strands at the end of the rope and passed them through the closed loops on the wire clasps; two strands left to right and two strands right to left. I folded the loose strands back on each other and wrapped with thinner gauged copper wire for a finished round leather braid necklace. 

I'll wear this the next time I socialize with the horsey set since I think this braid was developed for horse  tethers.
