EmmaLineDesign is the vision of a thirteen year old who wants to make a difference. Not only something cool to wear, but something that is functional, makes a statement and can support a cause.
“My dad went on a hunting trip to central California. When he came home he told me about a bracelet his hunting guide was wearing. He said that the guide called it a survival bracelet and that it was woven from paracord, a strong cord that they use to when making parachutes. The guide said that in an emergency the bracelet could be taken apart and the cord could be used in a pinch. The good part was that it was always with you. Dad showed me a picture of the bracelet and said that it looked alot like the friendship bracelets my friends and I would weave together. It really did look like them and I asked dad if he had any paracord. He went out to the garage and came back with a bundle of it.
I went on the internet and saw how people would weave them and I tried it. I saw that there were ones with buckles so I got some buckles and started making them for my dad and his hunting friends. Then I thought that they looked really good and I could get all different colors of paracord. Then I remembered that my dad would always wear a yellow bracelet for cancer awareness. My mom had just gone through a scare with breast cancer and I asked my dad to get me some pink paracord. I made my mom a pink bracelet and she loved it. Mom would wear it everywhere and people would ask her where she got it. This was my way of helping in a situation where I felt helpless and all I could do was hope and pray that things would turn out ok. Then I starting making them in different colors to support other causes.” -Emma
