Project Instructions

Cut two equal 4' pieces of paracord. Melt the ends of the cords with the lighter so they don’t fray. Once the end is beginning to melt, with your fingertips or some pliers squeeze down so it becomes somewhat flat. This will help you when threading your cord through your jump rings.
Measure to the middle of the cords and clip with binder clip. You will now have four strands to work with.
Take the outside left cord under the two middle cords.
Take the outside right cord under the first cord (outside left cord) and over the middle cords.
Take the second cord (outside right cord) and pull it through the loop that was created in Step 3.
Tighten the braid up to the binder clip.
The next step is completing the second cobra braid. We will be repeating step 3-5, except reversed.
Take the outside right cord under the two middle cords.
Take the outside left cord under the first cord (outside right cord) and over the middle cords.
Take the second cord (outside left cord) and pull it through the loop that was created in Step 8.
Repeat Steps 3-11 until you reach your desired length.
Loop the end strand of cord through a 6 mm jump ring. Pull the cord through a few knots of the inside of the bracelet. Trim excess cord and melt cord ends to prevent fraying.
Repeat Step 13 for the other end of the bracelet. Add the silver clasp closure to the jump ring.
Cover the back of the metal and glass pendant with HypoCement glue. Place in the middle section of the finished bracelet and press firmly into the weave of the bracelet.
