This friendship bracelet video tutorial with Chinese Yin-yang symbols celebrates several holidays together, from Chinese New Year (January 23), to our North American Valentines Day (February 14), to Carnival (March) in Latin America, where friendship bracelets were originally invented.
This is a very happy friendship bracelet with lots of Chinese red for good luck. Makes a fun little gift for your spiritual, yoga, Buddhist friends who wish to live in balance and harmony. And a lover also.
Incidentally, did you know that friendship bracelets were originally given to a friend at which time this friend could make a wish.
The bracelet was/is to be worn all day & night till it would fall of, at which time the wish is supposably being granted by the universe.
Mmm.. reminds me of Tibetan prayer flags, and how they are used.
In terms of difficulty level, I would not make this my first bracelet ever. However, if you’ve made other friendship bracelets before you could give this a try also.
