Friendship Bracelets and other pretties

I've become sort of obsessed with friendship bracelets right now. Ever since Nicole's Friendship Bracelet Project, I've become kind of fascinated with them. So I'm making some for fun and other bracelet items.



This is some bracelets I'm making as part of a new project with Project You. I do like how they have turned out. And I took the photos using my iPhone 4 and played around with some camera apps. So fun :)


I was actually first inspired to make those bracelets after seeing this bracelet for the Butterfly Foundation, which Sportsgirl supports. It's to support Australians with eating disorders and negative body image. 

So the purpose my of little bracelets is sort of similar. I wanted it to be a reminder for those who have joined Project You that they are special, beautiful and unique. 

Anyway, it seems as though friendship style bracelets are everywhere! It makes me love them even more. 


And there are a lot more but I don't think I would need to list all the ones I like. Definitely liking bracelets lately. Like Alyssa said, bracelets are for us to admire, while necklaces are for others to admire. Or along those lines :) 

Do you like friendship style wrap bracelets? Do you prefer necklaces or bracelets? 

Have a wonderful weekend!

These are so sweet, Gracie! I love that light pink one with the feather, and your wishbones are precious. I'm so impressed, and what a sweet project.

Cute! I wear necklaces more, just because I can't wear brracelets to work, due to hygiene. x

They are very pretty! I wish I would be able to make them myself as well, but I am not talented at all, haha. You are really a very creative person!

These are all gorgeous, I am afraid I am not a huge jewellery wearer but if I do make an effort it is always with a bracelet. Maybe I need to make more of wearing it this upcoming Spring.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

The friendship bracelets are so cute.
I really like bracelets, but my problem is my small wrists: its so hard to find ones that fit properly!

Kristie said...

i like bracelets better but my hands are so small that store-bought bracelets rarely fits my hand!
haha

I'm more a necklace girl, but friendship bracelets are so cute. In the move I found my old friendship bracelet book, so I want to try making some soon!
