This tutorial will show how to make a paracord bracelet with a side release buckle. This can be worn as jewelry, and unlike chain, it allows you to store several feet or rope on your person at all times. When made on a larger scale, this can also be used as a dog or cat collar.
A reliable online source of paracord is the Supply Captain. They carry a huge selection of cord in colors ranging from army green to rainbow. For side release buckles I recommend Creative Designworks.
