Shark jawbone paracord bracelet instructions

Updated on July 13, 2014

The bracelet


The shark jaw bone is a milestone for many that are into paracord crafts. One one hand it is a beautiful design, on the other it looks to be quite challenging to do.

To be honest I found it impossible to make when I was starting out. But I found a way which makes this bracelet incredibly easy to make and in the following sections I will guide you through the process of making one for yourself.

The bracelet as you can see on the image looks spectacular, the sharks teeth really make it special. It is also reversible, meaning you can wear it on either side. The other side has black teeth and a green background.

The version I show uses a diamond knot to finish the bracelet, but you can choose to use a buckle instead of a knot. Buckles are popular because they look classy. Some say they also make wearing bracelets, putting them on and off easier, but I do not agree with that.

The process of making paracord bracelets is easier if you use a buckle.

If you are interested in seeing more paracord projects, then see the post at my blog.

Required supplies

For this project you will need the following supplies:

  1. paracord 550
  2. lighter, knife to cut the cord
  3. optionally a buckle

You may also choose to get a bracelet jig (featured below). For anyone serious about paracord crafts it is a worthwhile investment.

I recommend this book if you are interested in different paracord bracelet designs.

How to make a shark jaw bone bracelet

The SJB as it is called, is made using a very similar technique that the cobra knot bracelet uses. But instead of going over or under the core cords, you go through the middle of them.

Do not worry if the first knots seem a bit weird, the bracelet will turn out fine. Adjust any bad looking knots and make sure you make no mistakes!

Finish with a diamond knot if you are not using buckles.

For the rest of the guide, see the tutorial below.
