About the Book
In the 1970s, there was nothing quite as magical as wearing--and sharing--friendship bracelets with your nearest and dearest friends. According to legend, a friendship bracelet was supposed to be worn until it wore out and fell off by itself--at which time , the wearer's wish would come true. Now, these fun fashion statements are back, and just as popular as ever with youngsters, adults, and even celebrities! Arm Candy will help you create your own beautiful friendship bracelets with:

  • 15 bracelets to make, including chevron woven friendship bands, wire word bracelets, rubber band bracelets and more
  • Step-by-step instructions for using washi tape, cord, leather, loom bands, beads and even zips to make bracelets and bangles to wear stacked together or one at a time
  • Detailed instructions and step-by-step photography to get you knotting, bending, twisting, braiding, and tying your way to bracelet heaven

These bracelets are great to wear, share, and give to friends. You'll have so much fun, you'll probably make extras to keep for yourself!

My Take on the Book
Laura Strutt is certainly a very creative designer. Her book is written so well for the reader. Laura includes step by step easy to follow directions for the projects. She lists all the materials and includes excellent detailed photographs of each project. The author includes tips for her projects. The tips will assist the reader in customizing the bracelet.

There are hours and hours of creative fun making bracelets in this book. With the beads and various embroidery threads we have, I can see my girls enjoying each project. If you have a child who enjoys craft projects, you may want to check out Laura Strutt's ARM CANDY book.
