Texas Tech Paracord Bracelet, woven using the traditional Cobra weave by NancysCrystalFantasy
"Paracord bracelets are bang on trend right now, and a really fashionable and popular way of symbolizing strength and honor. Paracord is a lightweight cord, with a very strong nylon inner core, and was originally used in parachutes. It is available in lots of different colors and patterns as well as a variety of widths. The most popular version is the superstrong #550 military spec paracord - 550 means it has a breaking strength of over 550 pounds! In an emergency, you could even unravel your bracelet and use the cord to get you out of some difficult situations!"

"Depending on which weave or braid you choose, you will need between 12 and 25 feet of paracord to make a bracelet. The basic, and most widely used, weave is known as the Solomon, or Cobra, weave. This is a very simple weave to learn, and you can incorporate two colors very easily. Here is a basic paracord bracelet video tutorial that I found very helpful:"

"The bracelets can be personalized in so many different ways - by using different colors or combinations of colors, adding charms or school logos, or weaving them using one of many different weaves. There are many other uses for the paracord weave in addition to bracelets - because of their strength, they can also be made into dog collars, key fobs, belts, and necklaces. I have also added charms and school logos to these bracelets, but you can let your imagination go wild with the many different add-ins you can use to make this type of bracelet your very own!"
