Amigami Friendship Bracelets

I first learned the Friendship Bracelet Knot technique when I was about 6 or 7, and ever since have been fascinated with the myriad of pattern which can be created.  I’m always on the lookout for larger, more complex patterns that transcend the diagonal stripe bracelets of my childhood.  Since returning from vacation, I’ve managed to construct several examples.

As you can see, the diagonal stripe which the overhanded Friendship Knot creates remains the cornerstone of many designs.  The trick to creating complex patterns is manipulating the zig and zag of the striping in order to develop intricate designs.  Through this simple method of manipulation, an almost endless array of patterns can be created. 

Each of these bracelets can be fastened using a pair of braided cords which adorn either end.  By letting the bracelets flow freely from either end, as opposed to ending them in thick knots, the bracelets gain an overall heightened sense of movement and play.

These bracelets are basically examples & showcase pieces, bu t will most likely become the models for later products in my Etsy store.  And of course, I am always happy to fulfill custom requests, so if one of these bracelets catches your eye, please contact me.
