Modern Friendship Bracelets

The designs in 20 to Make - Modern Friendship Bracelets range from those that are beautifully simple and easy to make, to some that may take a little longer but are well worth the effort! This page will help you to purchase all the materials needed for the projects in the book.

Traditionally, friendship bracelets were created by North American Indians using a simple piece of knotted cord, but more recently they have evolved to include a multitude of materials, techniques and styles. Designs now use leather and suede or ribbon and cord and feature charms and crystals - there are no rules and you are limited only by your imagination! However, the spirit of the friendship bracelet remains - they are given as a gift to celebrate and confirm a special friendship.

We hope that you will be inspired to try some of these designs.
