DIY friendship bracelets and anklets are Stella’s new summer fashion obsession. Yep, a throwback to camp days with your BFFs!
Shockingly, I never went to camp so while I am an avid DIY-er, I was stumped when it came to making this anklet. Luckily, our friend Laura was a Friendship Jewelry Pro so she made this one with Stella. I love how everyone usually makes bracelets but Stella promptly declared she wanted an “anklet to match her toes!” After Stella made the anklet I told her that when I was little, we called this type of jewelry “friendship bracelets,” to which she replied, “Mom, this anklet is because you are my best friend!”
I think it looks so cute! And as usual, Michaels had just what I needed with their My Friendship Bracelet Maker, so Stella and I were able to start making tons of DIY friendship jewelry together. I’m still mastering the bracelet, but I plan on soon making a braided belt a la the 70’s! I like to set goals…
