The techniques and materials of the classic friendship bracelet trace their roots to Central and South America, and the fashion world's renewed interest in all things ethnic have transported it to the runway, inspiring celebrities, models, and fashion mavens like Beyonce, Heidi Klum, Lauren Conrad, Bar Rafaeli, and Rita Ora to sport "stacks" of ultra-chic wrist candy and retailers to sell expensive versions.

I love this book! Ms. Haab has done it again. Enjoying a long, prolific craft writing career, Sherri continues to bring a rich and eclectic, varied background of crafting and design expertise to her newest book. Her project designs are always simple to follow, and yet to the beholder, look much more difficult. Her design projects are on trend and yet have so many possibilities to explore; I think they will continue on to be timeless. This book will stay on the crafter's bookshelf for a long time to come. I believe that this book has the best ever how-to introductory sections. The illustrations and photo's are great. They are easy to follow, fun, and entice one to jump in quickly! Sherri is always meticulous in her research, whether what's happening in the design world, her thoughtful and logical process steps, and material/technique safety concerns. Her writing is also just plain fun. The crafter can hardly wait to dive into the projects. Inspiration for any level with lots of room...
Excellent book. Instructions and pictures easy to understand.
I borrowed this book from the library and had to have it.
