You could always have a diclaimer stating per color not fused together. Also when you fuse them you are only taking out an inch or so of the inner strings so there is still plenty of inner strings for people to use. http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?n...uct_id=2915018 this listing has a disclaimer stating the strength of the bracelet

Yes and no. The cord will still hold 550lbs, just not the two pieces fused together. If you use the pieces seperately, it'll still hold that weight amount, you just won't have as long of a cord. KWIM?

Part of the whole survivial thing is that you could use this cord for anything- making a shelter, splinting a leg, making a harness. I don't think it has to be only about rappeling down a cliff. Let's be real- is 8 or 10 feet going to get you very far anyway? That is how I still justify calling them survival bracelets. It's about having a supply of cord with you in case you need it.
I think its really meant for survival meaning more of using it for some of the other stuff you mentioned, it isn't meant for repelling. While it will hold that weight, its not thick enough for repelling (DH is a rock climber/repeller person lol) I mean, you could if you HAD to, but it wouldn't be a good idea lol. But point being, you're very right, its more for an easy, less bulky way of carrying cord incase you need it.

Yeah, I agree,. Its more of a look thing vs. an actual usage deal. KWIM?

Good point with the uses for survival.

I made my first 2 today and I'm doing something wrong. I'm just doing the knot end right now and the knot doesn't stay in the loop. Is the loop too big?

I am not stating that they are survival bracelets. I have mostly made them for teens who are only looking at the bracelet and pretty colors! If I were advertising them, I would stick to the one color! I fuse them by taking out 1-2 inches and putting the other color inside then melting the edges together.

I received my buckles today! So excited to start making these!

I splurged and ordered the buckles that have the whistle built in. I figured it might be an added selling point for hikers and hunters. I was afraid the whistle might be rinky-dink though. I am happy to say the whistle is ear blasting.

I made three bracelets this pm and will try to post a picture tomorrow once I figure out how to post pictures. I am actually going to hand these off to a friend to make since I have two shows to get ready for and she needs some cash. She keeps a percentage of each bracelet we sell, once materials are covered. I just couldn't resist making a couple though myself!

Here are the three I made. You can see the whistle buckle really well on the pink one. Please excuse the clutter on the desk behind them. That's kind of the state of my life right now.
