Celebrity-Themed Friendship Bracelets For You and Your BFF

by Emma Orlow


Nothing cements BFF-dom like a friendship bracelet. If you went to camp when you were younger, you probably became quite the expert at making all of those braided string and lanyard-type bracelets, too. I know that in my camp days, girls wore bracelets up to their elbows to show off all off their BFFs. Don’t mess with a girl with a lot of friendship bracelets, ’cause she has a lot of friends who can mess you up.

According to Jess Katz, they’re not just for pre-teens at summer camp anymore. She’s injected the friendship bracelet with a bit of sass in her namesake Etsy shop. Katz makes beaded bracelets for duos in pop culture that are the yin to each other’s yang. There’s a Barbie and Ken bracelet set, Guns and Roses,  Daria and Jane, Freaks and Geeks, and my favorite, Romy and Michele from the 90’s movie Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion. Which are the best match for you and your BFF?
