Since my elementary school days, I've been a huge fan of the good old friendship bracelets. I used to pile them on like I had to display every single one of my relationships on my arms & wrists- little did I know how silly I looked.
Since then, my taste in jewelry has dramatically changed. I still appreciate the heartfelt little creations made out of colorful string; but I found some more fashion-forward pieces that your friends would love to wear in the present. Paying homage to the braided aesthetic, bright hues, and little bits of sparkle, these new takes on the childhood favorite are sure to impress.
