Nantucket Sailor's Bracelet

After considerable consternation in the process, I finally made a Nantucket Sailor's Bracelet.

I used maroon paracord for two passes around the five lead 14 bight Turk's Head knot that forms the bracelet, using a compressed air can as a mandrel, and then went around again with some 1/16" Cool Glow Stuff cord that kind of sits in the groove between the paracord strands.

If I'd set it directly in between the paracord, it would also be visible on the inside of the bracelet, but since this was my first one, I didn't quite have the cords spaced that way. I think I used around 18 feet of cord in the finished bracelet.

I think it looks cooler when you can only see the white cord on the outside. You should sell them!
