*Updated* Friendship Bracelets - All Grown Up

I don't remember my friendship bracelets from the 80s being as rad as these glammed-up versions from Frieda & Nellie. I love that the ethnic vibe of the traditional woven bracelet gets a kick in the pants with the rhinestones. Given my choice, I'd layer them up with a menswear-style watch, a classic oxford and strong denim. Shazaaam!

They're sold via Charm & Chain - a website that carries unique, but relatively affordable jewelry.

*Update: A very cool reader (thanks, Anon) led me to this Etsy store - looka looka!
...and for A LOT less dolla dollas! (Most are sold, so convo the vendor to say, "I love these, please make more!")
Anyone like to start exchanging again?

Those are super cool. And yes, since the ante has been up'd to $300 a pop...sharing is a must.

Oh, I remember braiding friendship bracelets oh-so-long-ago. These are a great take on an old trend!

I worked at a camp as a lifeguard for years and my arms were covered in the less bling-y version of these.
In fact, I just taught my 7 year old daughter how to make them last night!
I'd exchange with you!
