Default Dyed Leather Bracelets

I'm at Universal Studios and they are selling dyed leather bracelets everywhere. My girls love them. And the tops are painted a different color and the salesperson scrapes off the color to write your name or whatever you want. I will post a pic later.

But the coolest thing is how each end has a braid except the end of the bracelet - like it was never totally cut into 3 pieces ... How was that done???

Anyone seen these types of bracelets?

OMG DeDe - you are my hero! I'm so excited about making something no one else is yet at craft shows - well, after I try one. The tutorials seem simple enough.

Awww, shucks... Each tutorial puts a slightly different spin on the basic technique, so it really pays to look at all them.

The ones in Florida are braided on each side and they scratched off the paint on the top to reveal the back leather color when they wrote my DD's names. I can't wait to get home from vacation to try them. We paid $15 or each bracelet (crazy!) but I wouldn't charge that much of course.

Now I'm intrigued! Were they available in different sizes? (or just one), and what kind of clasp. Of course... photos would be VERY appreciated. please please please...
