In my tweens, I went through a major frienship-bracelet-making craze. Those things were bartered like gold in grade five, and I still have one given to me by the "that cool artsy girl" of my class. I spent hours learning to re-create it.
While it's been a while and I'm out of practice, I think I have enough remaining skills (not to mention yards of embroidery floss) to make these cute necklaces with the project from Honestly... WTF blog, inspired by Vogue. I forgot how pretty all the colours are! And I love adding the wachers and nuts to push them to the next level (and conveniently weigh them down).
