Sometimes the smallest material used in the simplest way can produce the most impact. This is what makes these narrow herringbone turks head bracelets so appealing.
There is only a single piece of cord in this example a segment of bright white 325 paracord, worked up into a five part herringbone design.
Each part passes over two and under two creating the distinctive herringbone "V" pattern. The loose ends are bound together with waxed thread to secure them from unraveling.
The weave has a natural flexibility enabling these types of bracelets to stretch out quite a bit then relax to their native smaller size.
The paracord is soft to the touch but very tough material. Like other types of paracord this will shrink when the inner fibers get wet and take a "set" after it dries out. This lighter gauge material is nicely propositioned for these smaller projects.
Black paracord is a classic choice for making rugged rope bracelets like this herringbone weave design. The material is a 325 paracord which is thinner than the 550 material. This continuous weave has no hardware or clips.
The design is a 29x5x2 herringbone weave drawn up to a firm shape. Size is a "small" measuring about 6 7/8" (274 mm) but the herringbone weave allows for a lot of natural stretch. This enables the bracelet to stretch out to fit over the bigger part of you hand then return to it's relaxed shape to fit more snugly on the wrist.
Paacord tends to shrink when it gets wet as the inner fibers absorb moisture and re-position. Nylon dries quickly and can be re-stretched to it;s original dimension.
Classic nautical colors of bright white and navy blue made into a small rope bracelet. The material is 325 paracord which is a smaller diameter lighter weight material than the more common 550 variety. This smaller size makes this the perfect choice for people with smaller hands.
Paracord is made from a fiber core covered with a woven sheath which provides a consistent smooth and colorful stock of material. The popular "survival bracelets" are made from this material. Available in a huge range of colors paracord is easy to work with making these bracelets.
These knotted bracelets have no clips or other hardware, just a continuous weave pattern. Can you spot the ends?
Size of this bracelet is 6 1/4" (158 mm) inside circumference. The paracord will tend to shrink when it gets wet so this one would be just right for a teen or small adult wrist.

This is a matched pair of turks head knot cuffs made out of a single piece of 1/8" braided nylon cord.
The weave design is 13x9x2 double diamond which creates a nicely proportioned size. They measure about 7 1/2" (191 mm) inside circumference in the relaxed size shown here. The loose weave will allow someone with adults size hands to flex them on over the thumb.
The ends of the cords are left loose (not bound together) so these cuffs can be slipped on an adjusted to a sung fit on your wrist. It's easy to work up the desired size by chasing the slack through the knot to the ends.
The tower and keepers quarters are constructed of brick in an Italianate architectural style completed in 1874. Originally equipped with a third order Fresnel lens made of six bulls-eyes revolving once every nine minutes creating a flash every 90 seconds. This lens has since been replaced with an LED source. The lantern stands 86 ft above grade but is on a bluff so the focal plane is 130 ft above the lake.
A tram system descends to a concrete landing on the lakeshore enabling equipment and supplies to be off-loaded and moved up the bluff. Restoration work is underway on the buildings and bluff to preserve this national historic landmark site.
