If you want to know how to make friendship bracelets then there are plenty of detailed instructions on the internet for different types of friendship bracelets – the most common type are ones that are made with embroidery floss and the floss is woven into patterns by hand by following a pattern if necessary. Instructions are quite easy to follow and involve twisting and knotting the floss.

As well as friendship bracelets you can also find friendship necklaces which often have two halves of one piece of metal or symbol that match each other, split between the two necklaces. When the two pieces are together they form one solid piece.
