DESIGN ORIGINALS-Friendship Bracelets 101 knows no boundaries-it covers the world. It comes in all languages. The idea of making a bracelet to celebrate and share friendship began in Central and South America. The legend of the wish began with the bracelets. One person makes a bracelet and ties it around the arm of a friend, who makes a wish. When the bracelet falls off by itself, the wish will come true! By Suzanne McNeill. Softcover: 19 pages.
