OK, lets see... before my graduation, my big sister got back from a trip to Africa, during which time she learned how to make bracelets with fishing line and beads. She taught me how and we've both made a bunch of 'em. Pretty much each one I've made relates to a part of me, so I don't make them randomly.
This is my first beaded necklace, which I just made today. I've gone through a bunch of strings and chains to go with this "Airbender" dog tag (first one I ever made), and now this one fits perfect.
These are really fun to make so i would recommend it (along with reading a book) to anyone who just needs something to do when they're bored.
