One day, a few years ago, I was looking at the colour pattern on my striped shirt (blue, pink, white, purple. I don't have that shirt anymore). For whatever reason, I thought, these would make good friendship bracelet colours. So I googled and that's how I found this amazing site.
I first learned to make bracelets from a friend in junior high circa 1990, i.e. eons ago. I made quite a few bracelets back then, but nothing as complicated as some of the ones here. After finding this site, I made a few bracelets and then stopped again. I started again last year when I was doing some cleaning out, came across my supplies box and thought, "I want to do this again!" So I did. I still have some pattern ideas sitting in my head from my high school days (mid-90's) that I need to get out!
My favourite pattern is zigzag (e.g. 27261) and its variations. My favourite colour combinations involve yellows, greens, teals, blues. I also love rainbow!
I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and still live here.
