i love the new trend of stacking friendship bracelets.  wearing multiple bracelets is a great conversation starter; each bracelet oftentimes tells a story greater than what meets the eye.  one bracelet can signify a time, a reason and a place of where it was received.  i remember being a little girl and finding a bracelet under the christmas tree.  with the name “barbara” on it, i knew i could never part with this bracelet, though there were few times i felt I had grown out of it for a fleeting moment.  as a gift from my parents (my sister received a matching one with her name), it was too meaningful to me. recently, my 5 year old nephew made me a friendship bracelet (made of green yarn above).  i think of him every time i wear it.  of course, i’ve added new bracelets and if you’re in the market to expand your collection, here are a few suggestions:

1. target <$5+> more options in-store than online
2. athropologie <$15+>
3. jcrew <$18+> more options in-store than online
4. gorjana <$35+>
5. frieda and nellie <$130+>

next time you “stack” a bracelet, think about the time and place in which you received it.  it’s sure to bring back fond memories!
