Bracelets Galore

I've never been a lot into gold jewelry. I admit I had a obsession with silver jewelry in high school. Or maybe I just kept getting silver jewelry as gifts, I don't know, but I had a lot that my mom would snag on occasion (sorry Mom!) :) :)

What I do know, is that I've always loved bracelets.

It started with Rubber bracelets. Just a circle around your wrist made from rubber that could be twisted with other rubber bracelets made of various colors, like black, and pink, and neon green. haha.

Now the rubber bracelets today are thicker and still bright with cool messages on them.

Today the Italian Charm bracelet circles my wrist, that I have yet to fill...one day it will happen!

My all time favorites are the Friendship bracelets made from colored string.

I made these babies like crazy--braids, tie-knots, up to 12-15 strings of colors. It would sometimes take me a couple of weeks to finish them, but it was fun to give them away to my best buds.

And I still have an assortment of string that I pull out just to make one for a new friend. I guess friendship bracelets will never go out of style with me!
