This wonderful colorful hand wrapped thread on paracord necklace tutorial from Refinery 29 is similar in some ways to those I featured before. The finish is better with end caps than Ariane's tutorial. However, Ariane's method of starting with all the colored threads and hiding the non-working threads underneath the wrapping saves time and effort compared to attaching new thread all the time.
But you really don't need to go multi-color or even multi-strand. Consider using just one strand and thread up with a single color (or more) to match your hand made focal in a totally unique way!!
Don't like using hardware beads? Try using wire coils instead.
Also check out this post from Brit+Co which has 3 ways of making thread wrapped rope necklaces. The tassels and crosses are certainly interesting elements!
If all that handwiding is too much for you, then take a look at this Mark Montano video tutorial for a rope and tassel bracelet. It is based on paracord but it has been covered mostly by strips of fabric. The thread is just for accent. You'll notice the tutorials use multiple units for the wow factor!
