I LOVE the bracelet DIYs on honestlywtf.com - and the embellished friendship bracelet tutorial is the best!
I guess what I'm going for is a mix of the two styles, similar to bracelets I already own -
The teal bracelet has crimp beads along each cord, and is embellished with small silver hearts and beads. This was from Target and purchased at $4. The other bracelet is round, plastic lanyard cord, embellished with different beads and charms. The square silver beads are separated by little knots. This one I got at a little mall store for $5. Each bracelet has three "strands" so to speak. I think I could do that, and many more, for a fraction of the price!
Supplies are from Joann craft store. Embroidery floss in about 2 dozen colors, heart charms, leaf charms, silver beads, etc. I am excited! I wanted to go bead crazy but thought I would just start small.
I figure I could make myself some, and if they're good enough then that's what everyone's getting from me from now on lol ;)
Wish me luck!
