Grownup Friendship Bracelets

8 Jul

There seem to be a confluence of factors leading designers and artists to create inexpensive, DIY-looking colorful, stackable bracelets that inspire social jewelry phenomenons…

1) The uncertain economy:

Silly Bandz Zoo Animals from Walmart

2) Art as religion/ philosophy:

"I Wish Your Wish" exhibit at The New Museum of Contemporary Art via NYMag

3) Sports madness:

"My Colors" leather wrap bracelets from Tod's via Elle Blogs

Now it’s time for me to go out and get some string to be back in touch with making bracelets at summer camp…

DIY instructions are here.

    So crazy – creating friendship bracelets was the closest equivalent we as young girls had to any sort of home making skill. I miss it!

      Me too! Just think how many we could whip out during this summer vacation/ transition time.
