I’m happy to finally post about the new Paracord bracelets I’ve been making! For those of you who haven’t ever heard the word, or understand what they are, or if you aren’t yet one of the lucky ones to be wearing one….here’s a brief description about what a Paracord Bracelet is:
Basically, in a nutshell, a paracord bracelet is a single piece of 550 Type III paracord woven into a bracelet.
But, for you others who really want to know the history behind them(like me!), the following is for you:
The first use for paracord (or “550 cord”, because it can withstand up to 550 pounds of weight) was in parachute suspension lines during World War II. Soldiers had few possessions with them and the cord could be used for many emergency situations, which included binding and hauling. Nowadays, the armed forces still use the cord in parachutes, but also for tourniquets, restraints, and bootlaces, to name just a few. People who spend a lot of time outdoors or camping use the cord as well for emergencies, securing a tent, or as a clotheline. In more recent years, the Survival Bracelet was born, and because of it’s handy location ( 🙂 ), not only do the military, outdoorsmen and women use them, but also law enforcement personnel and firefighters wear them, just in case.
So, there you have it. The Paracord Survival Bracelets are not only a very cool fashion accessory for anyone, but they are also practical. Depending on the size of your bracelet, you will have available to you a minimum of 7 feet of paracord and up.
These practical things have been a hit at my house, and beyond….I made one for me, my husband, then my kids each wanted one, then nephews, then friends, then law enforcement officers, and so on…
I just recently have started to make a law enforcement bracelet, and look for the fire & rescue bracelet, as well as a military remembrance bracelet. And, for those of you who have a favorite school or sports team, bracelets in multiple school colors are available from me as well.
I’m currently taking orders, and each bracelet costs only $12. You can contact me via a comment at the bottom of the blog, email, and don’t forget to check KB Cakes & Creations out on Facebook!!!
