Friendship Wrap Bracelet Revisited

Do you remember Spring Break, circa 1992?  Let me refresh your memory, you were considered one of the cool girls if you came back tanned to a bronze and with some brightly colored string woven around a tiny braid in your long hair.  Today I revisited this concept but as a bracelet and hopefully with a 2012 edge!  This was fun and surprisingly easy.  How I ever learned to make friendship bracelets as a kid without YouTube is beyond me!  I found this little gem of a video yesterday, I used four strands of waxed linen for the inside pieces instead of the braided yarn this video suggested and it worked great.  It gives the bracelet a nice little rigidity as a bonus.  The clasp is a tinier version of some nest pendants that I had created a few years ago.  And of course in keeping with my tassel obsession I just left some of the excess fringe.  A unique look for sure!  I think it would be cool to do a really long version of this that wraps around five times and incorporates more colors.
