Paracords (kurz für Parachute Cords) sind dünne, leichte Seile aus Nylon, die ursprünglich im Zweiten Weltkrieg für Fallschirmleinen eingesetzt wurden. Heute werden sie jedoch längst nicht mehr nur vom Militär verwendet: Das Knüpfen von Armbändern, Gürteln oder Schlüsselanhängern aus Paracords erfreut sich immer größerer Beliebtheit, wobei die verschiedensten Knoten angewandt werden. J. D. Lenzen ist ein Experte auf dem Gebiet des Knotens und Knüpfens mit Paracords. In dem Nachfolger seines Buches Paracord-Basics führt er den Leser durch 35 neue Paracordknoten und geht diesmal noch einen Schritt weiter: Aus den Knoten werden nützliche Gegenstände wie Gürtel, Armbänder, Beutel oder sogar Sandalen! Anhand zahlreicher 4-farbiger Fotos und leicht verständlicher Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen kann jeder Leser die kreativen Ideen leicht ausprobieren und nachknüpfen.

Six step-by-step projects for making jewelery from natural materials. Each chapter includes brief information about the material (history and qualities), an introduction to the item to be made in the section, and information about other materials and tools required to work with this particular material. Pieces made in each chapter will vary, e.g., there will be a necklace made from grasses, a ring made of stone, a brooch constructed out of wood, and so on - this way the author can demonstrate a broad range of techniques. The focus of the book will be on producing contemporary pieces with a broad appeal, offering readers the chance to produce their own wearable, interesting jewellery that is not too challenging, but miles away from the 'tourist tat' or 'feather on a string' look. Images will include the work of varied international jewellery makers, from locations including the UK and US, Germany, Switzerland, Scandanavia, Australia and New Zealand.
