A friend of mine recently joined up with Stella & Dot as one of their stylists. I went to one of her Trunk Shows to see what the jewelry is all about. One of her items she had on display was the Sidewinder Bracelet. Immediately, I fell in love with it. The online description doesn’t do it justice:
A single rose gold plated brass serpent with Czech crystals in the center of a hand woven nylon cord.
- Adjustable sliding closure.
- 5 ½” shortest and 9 ½” at longest length.
- Lead & nickel safe.
They fail to mention that the hand woven cord is woven in the same way survivalists weave parachute cord. This technique is called Cobra Braid or Cobra Knot. The Cobra Braid takes cord such as parachute chord and weaves it into a compact and manageable length. The rule of thumb is every inch of cobra braid equals about 1.5 feet of cord. Not that I plan on adding this bracelet to my survival kit but I think it’s a nice piece to show the outdoor/survivalist in you.
