Home Made Paracord Bracelets, Leather Bracelets, Keychains, etc.

Some people were wondering about mine. I make these bracelets just for fun. you can search google for “paracord bracelet” or something similar to find instructions. It’s basically one big knot. I drilled a hole in a penny to use as the clasp. This design should probably be called the “pennywise”. I’ve seen this type of clasp on designs going back to the 70’s.. so it’s not new.. haha My design is made from one long huge piece of cord (vs 2 pieces) so I can un-ravel it and use it for whatever just in case. I use Mil-spec 550 Paracord which has several strands of cord within the larger one. I leave the strands in there when making the bracelets. I have paracord laying around for mis lanyards for knives, cameras, etc. When you get tired of one… make yourself another ! haha Here is the same design I made in leather. I used skull beads for the clasp. There is also a glow in the dark bead on there. Making lanyards can be fun and they make great key chains, bracelets, accents. In a rare case, it might save your life.. haha.¬† You can use different knots for different designs. I use my swiss army knife as an awl to aid in making the knotts sometimes. You can save a bundle making them yourself, not to mention customizing any kind of strap you may need for virtually any application. Often times just a simple loop is all that is needed. Authentic mil-spec 550 Paracord can also take 500lbs so no worries for holding your smaller gear.
