This bracelet is a designer version of the survival and friendship bracelets worn by many US soldiers. It is part of a campaign to raise significant funds for veterans’ aid organizations and to celebrate and serve our returning heroes.
The survival and friendship bracelets in the field are braided by the soldiers with parachute cord. Often a uniform button is sewn on and used as the clasp.
This designer version has a sterling silver clasp shaped like a uniform button and has black parachute cord tightly braided around a sterling silver bangle.
