Paracord has about a thousand and one uses. But I have to admit what attracted me to paracord first was the beautiful bright colors it comes in. While it originally seems to have had a purely military function, (I understand the idea is that you can wear a bracelet made of it which you can unravel in a survival situation and have a piece of functional cord) paracord has become a popular thing to make bracelets out of for other reasons. Paracord bracelets have a place with organizations who make them for use in fund raisers or with folks just wearing them as a fashion accessory. I do NOT know how to make a paracord bracelet! But for those of you who do, here is the paracord and here is a paracord buckle:

#R210 $75 cents each Black 1/2". The 1/2" dimension refers to the inside opening where the paracord is inserted. Side Release Black Paracord Buckle; overall length approximately 1.75"

Safety Warning: Paracord is a tool and should be used with the utmost caution. We sell only paracord for utility and decorative purposes  Paracord rope is not intended for use in applications such as tree work or as personal safety lines where danger to life, limb or property exists. The paracord rope on this page is not to be used to raise loads or persons. It is not to be used as safety lines. It is not to be used where life, limb or personal safety are involved. Typical paracord uses include attaching equipment to harnesses, securing camouflage nets to trees or vehicles, lashing poles together, securing cargo, even controlling bleeding

Never stand in line with a rope or cord under load. Rope has built in elasticity and a snap back can occur if there is a break. Estimated break strengths are for new and unused rope. A knot can reduce rope strength by over 50%. Store rope out of sunlight to prevent degrading.

Working loads are for rope in good condition with appropriate splices and under normal service conditions. Working loads are not applicable when rope is subject to shock or dynamic loading. These can cause failure to a rope that is normally strong enough to handle the job.
