DIY Unlocking Bracelet

I'm looking for plans to make a set of bracelets that will unlock when they come in contact with each other (no keys involved). I'm not sure how to even begin looking for something like this, my searches have come up fruitless so far so I decided to take my request to the Instructables forums. Any help would be appreciated.

Rope/Cord Bracelet

I recently saw this: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/gallery/2011/nov/18/christmas-gift-ideas-jewellery-over-20-pounds#/?picture=381571697&index;=4 ... and thought that someone could whip it up in next to no time, saving a fair few pennies. I'm not so hot on jewellery making though - does anyone know what the finding on the right hand side of the bracelet, the cylindrical one, is called?

LED bracelet inlay

This is my first post so please excuse if I am in the wrong place :( I have a boot bracelet with a leather back and ornate bling glued to the leather and sewn at the edges. I want to add small LED strip lights, weather proof, cutable every 3 lights, double-sided adhesive to the center (between leather and ornate mesh side. I want to be able to turn it  on and off.  I figure 6 mini strip lights should be more than enough.  Here are the lights I have: Features: Superbright 3528 SMD LEDs with high intensity and reliability. 5 Metre strip with 600 LEDs Self-adhesive back with double side adhesive tape. Maintenance free, easy installation Long life of 50,000 hours Flexible strip which can easily be curved around bends. UUltra-bright but running at low temperature Viewing Angle : 120° Input volts: DC 12V This Cool White strip light has 600pcs Double Density,SMD 3528 LEDs The Strip is Customizable for any length you want, Cuttable every 3 LED's without damaging the rest strips, flexible and can be bent at any angle, Works with a 12 Volt Power supply Low power consumption, Eco Friendly, High Quality, high intensity and reliability, High Quality Cool White, Double Density 600 LED's, 3528 SMD 5M/16.4 ft, high intensity and reliability, Long lifespan,   Hopefully that helps.  What I need is a battery source that can be added to the inside of the bracelet that will light it up and allow me to turn off and on (push on/off is better than switch). The source would have to be in something waterproof like a latex substance and can only take up a minimal amount of space 1.5 - 2".  Obviously the batteries would have to lay flat (flat coin-like batteries?) Is there ANYONE out there who can give me ideas?   Thank you!!!

Blakes 7 Teleport Bracelet

This is how to make the magic blakes seven teleport bracelet!Ingredients:one cardboard roll, such as a poster or postal cylinder or the cardboard roll from inside a roll of packing tape; diameter 8.5cm, width 4cm (cut to this width if need be, using a saw or knife)cardboard, thick enough to be sturdy, thin enough to be flexiblethin cork (optional)plain paperglueblack or dark brown foam rubber (optional)silver tape width 1.5cm OR aluminuim foil cut or folded to width 1.5cmAntique Gold or metallic brown paintgrey paint OR a round grey button 2cm diameter OR grey tapered paint OR pink paint OR red paint + pearl nailpolishbrown packing tape or beige paintclear or red contact (optional)Visual Reference:Refer to the Liberator Teleport Bracelet diagram in the Horizon Technical Manual.Instructions:Cut your roll to the right width if need be. If the roll is too thin and flimsy, stick a layer of cardboard over it. Cover the rough edges with paper.Cut five strips of cardboard, one 15x3cm, one 9x3cm, one 1.3x3cm, and two 2.5x1cm (measurements will vary depending on the precise size of the cardboard roll). If the cardboard is thin, cut twice as many strips. If you are using thin cork, cut one strip each from the cork also.Stick the strips onto the roll, making sure they evenly positioned in the center. Check the diagram for where to stick them: the two long strips should be next to each other with a small gap representing where the hinge of the bracelet would go if it had a hinge. The small 1.3x3cm strip goes in the larger gap between the long strips - this is where the red button will go. If using cork, stick the cork down first, and the cardboard on top.When all the glue is dry, paint the bracelet with antique gold or metallic brown enamel paint. Do more than one coat if you think that will look better. Wait for the paint to dry.The red receive-button is made from the two smallest strips of cardboard stuck together, covered with white paper, painted red, and covered with contact to make it shiny. Another way of doing this is painting it red, and then painting it with white-pearl nailpoilish to get that glowing pink-red effect. Glue this as indicated in the diagram.The grey transmit-part is made either from cutting a circle of paper or thin card (1.5-2cm diameter) and painting it grey, or by using a grey round button and cutting off the shaft so that it will stick on flat. Stick this on as indicated in the diagram.Cut out silver tape or foil and stick on the bracelet as indicated in the diagram. Cut out (very cleverly) pieces of brown packing tape in the shapes of the alien characters that decorate the rest of the bracelet and stick them on, or else paint them on with beige paint. You may wish to paint the whole bracelet with clear enamel to protect it.Optionally add a lining with foam rubber, to aid the bracelet in not falling off when you wear it.NOTES: Cardboard rolls: the roll from inside a large roll of packing tape comes closest to the right size. A large postal cylinder is too large and a small one is too small. A Pringles packet is too small, but may be easier to obtain. A Pringles packet is easier to cut but is also flimsier; it is recommended to add bulk by sticking on more cardboard to thicken it up.Cardboard: most cardboard you can buy will probably be too thin. The backs of note-pads may provide thicker stuff. The disadvantage of thicker cardboard is that it will not bend as easily, and the cardboard used here must bend. An alternative if available could be thin cork (a few millimetres thick); this will bend fairly easily and add the bulk you need. But only bother if you happen to have some (maybe left over from someone's redecorating or the like). I used it for mine, it worked beautifully.The red button: building this up from strips of cardboard is fairly tedious, and if you can think of a better way, do that.I know Michael Keating!He Played Vila.
