I just returned from a week long trip to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin where I counseled a cabin of high school girls at sleepaway camp. The week was exhausting but pretty incredible none the less. I’ll admit, I’m a bit out of touch with what it was like to be a high schooler, with the stress of boys and college preparations a thing of the past. One thing that I resonated with, however, is the meaning of a heartfelt friendship bracelet! The girls were weaving and knotting like crazy all week – churning out multiple bracelets for their friends on a daily basis. So if you hadn’t gotten the memo: friendship bracelets are IN! I hadn’t made a friendship bracelet, probably since before high school, but the idea of making a bracelet for someone as a symbol of your friendship is still pretty cool in my book.
Many of the high school girls I hung out with this past week were capable of creating some pretty intricate designs for their friendship bracelets, and I was still stuck at the very basic level. But the idea behind the bracelet was still there. Here’s a new kind of friendship bracelet at Favecrafts, the design has a sort of woven, macrame feel to it and uses flexwire. Have fun creating bracelets for all your nearest and dearest!
