Wristfuls of colourful bracelets are my latest favourite thing. They're so pretty and summery :) I used to love wearing handmade friendship bracelets for months and months at school, never taking them off for anything, literally until the last thread broke (didn't everyone?). Happy memories!
I'm so tempted to make some for my friends even if most of us are in/about to face our late 20's. (OMG :/)
^ I love the one with the colourful letters and chunky beads. The pale pink pearly ones look great alongside it too.
^ Liking the star pendant dangling down and the pretty rainbow tassel.
^ The purple one looks like it might be just a strip of pretty fabric - easy to do! I liked the tie-a-pretty-ribbon-round-your-wrist-trend too, that's another easy one. Some people slate it but I think trend or not it's a good way to appreciate a bit of pretty ribbon :)
^ I keep seeing these chunky word bracelets (probably not the technical term). Thinking of DIY-ing something similar but can't think of any genius words - I fancy something more surprising... any ideas?!
^ I quite like the clusters that are all within one colour range too, as well as all the rainbow-ish ones. I love all the ribbon in this one and how they've stuck to black white and silver (the wearer or the designer, maybe it's one bracelet?). And that little watch face - I've got something similar...
^ Same here, plus there's a great contrast there with the spikes and pearly beads.
^ That black one with the bows - so cute!
^ See that butterfly charm? Want that too.
So much inspiration :)
