Style Files: Friendship Bracelets


When I was a girl, we used to make friendship bracelets....it was serious. Requesting colors and styles, and trying new designs. This was part of our endless days of summer and I can still remember how to make them. So seeing this bracelet trend sweep the blogosphere, is quite fun to me. Makes me want to go out and buy a bunch of bright colored string. But being realistic, I don't have time to make these anymore, so for now, I will admire them in photos:)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
The 1000 Celebration continues next week along with a special guest on Monday so stay tuned! :)

  14. Not sure how I feel about all these friendship bracelets creeping up lately...Seems like another childish fad like crazy bands.

    Wait. I know exactly how I feel about them. FAD. Please. Go. Away. LOLOL. At least some people are making them with chains. I can deal with that.

    The color, though, I will agree with you on--color is welcome!

  15. The only jewelry I knew of as a kid was from Claires. The only thing I learned how to make as a kid was a mess, wish I had a crafty mom or friend to show me how to make these!
