In this tutorial we take a look at how to make the serpent’s river bar paracord bracelet.
This bracelet was created by Gian Oneil and it is quite different than most bracelets. You can see that the shape is quite unique, making it quite fun and unusual.
The bracelet, like the shark jaw bracelet is reversible, meaning that you have two distinct looks to it.
Let’s tie one!
The items you need to tie this bracelet are the usual:
- paracord 550 in two different colors
- a 3/8 inch buckle
- a paracord bracelet jig may also come in handy. You can make one yourself quite easily.
As far as length of the cord is concerned, the bracelet is not cord heavy. 3 feet of each should do for a regular 6 inch long bracelet.
There are a few steps you need to follow. I demonstrate these below.
Start off by joining the two cords. I use the “Manny method” here. You can just melt the ends or sew them together.
Attach the cord to the bottom part of the buckle.
Then the top part.
We are now ready to work.
Step 1: pass the right end to the left side, under the left cord.
With your left cord go under the first middle cord, then into the loop on the right.
Step 2: make an “S” shape with your left cord.
With your right cord go over the “S” then under and through the loop on the right side.
Step 3: Pass the left cord under the right one.
With your right cord go under the first middle cord, then into the loop on the left.
Step 4: Make an “S” towards the left now.
Pass the left cord through the middle and into the loop on the left.
Start step 1 again.
Pass the left cord under and through the middle, then into the loop on the right.
Tighten. Continue to step 2 now.
Continue all the way down to the end, then cut and melt the ends.
Bracelet complete. Top side.
Enjoy your bracelet!
