Colourful Friendship Bracelets

Updated on September 3, 2014

Making Friendship Bracelets with New Friends

I first learned how to make a friendship bracelet many years ago when I worked as a volunteer on Kibbutz in Israel. Fellow volunteers were young people from different countries and almost everyone wore a friendship bracelet or a whole collection of friendship bracelets. Some wore friendship bracelets around their wrists and some wore it around their ankles.

We spend our free evenings drinking (ugh), tea, coffee and cold drinks, eating snacks while exchanging travel stories, debating world issues and just having fun. Quite often, we were making friendship bracelets and teaching one another how to make new friendship bracelet patterns.

To me a friendship bracelet is not only a gift of friendship but also a symbol of youth and freedom reminding me of that wonderful carefree time I spend in Israel.

      We used to make these all the time when we were kids. Mine always twisted and I never knew why. You brought back memories with this lens...
