With projects appealing to all ages and lifestyles, this guide teaches how to create a wide variety of jewelry using Paracord, an extremely strong, durable material that comes in an array of colors, including multitones and even glow-in-the-dark. No longer just for outdoor enthusiasts, Paracord is being used for all types of wearables, jewelry, and accessories, and the 13 unique designs in this craft book offer ideas for necklaces, bracelets, earrings, a cowl, a keychain, and more. Crafters can incorporate color and texture into their jewelry with beads, chains, fabrics, and fibers. Simple step-by-step drawings and color photographs make the projects easy to understand and quick to complete, and alongside the patterns and instructions are discussions of tools and techniques and a lesson in knots.

The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because as always with project books one is lucky to find enough projects one likes to make the book useful. This one is about average in "likeable" projects to my taste. However, the ones I like are really nice. Descriptions and directions seem easy to follow.
