I think taking a thick cord (folded in half so one end leaves you with a loop) and simply wrapping a thinner one around it tightly will get this effect. If you want to use more than one color (like the ones in the pictures), I would start off with all the color threads tied to the end of the cord you're wrapping around, wrap with the main color over all the others, switch to another color for a bit so the main color is covered, switch back. I hope that's not too confusing an explanation. Try looking for hair wrap instructions maybe... it's similar.

It shouldn't since it will be tied to the stationary center cord on both ends. Just make sure you wrap tightly... hair wraps stay on, so in theory, this should stay together too.
Also, you can put a little glue on the center cord before you wrap the first and last half inch or so (or the whole bracelet if you don't mind working with glue), then wrap over the glue. It will keep the wrapping thread from slipping off the ends.
