Friendship Bracelets Inspired Jewelry from For Me, For You

I was making my way through the Poppies entries for handmade jewelry, so that I could vote armed with info, and I totally fell for these necklaces from For Me, For You. Here's a bit about them:
For Me, For You jewelry started in the summer of 2009. All necklaces are handmade by me, Kate Miss, in New York City. The woven necklaces are inspired by the friendship bracelets of my childhood and are handwoven with cotton thread, and hang from a brass chain. I use a mixture of vintage and new, antique finish brass chains. My drops necklaces were created to have a simple, everyday necklace that looks nice when worn with or without the woven necklaces.

I made a TON of friendship bracelets as a kid (it was my go-to craft for long car rides...well in between pestering my brother to let me use his Gameboy) and I love the modern interpretation of them in these necklaces.
If you haven't checked out the Poppies—an online awards event from the fine folks at Poppytalk, head on over, both to vote and to see a wonderful round up of artists.

  1. I have that first necklace, in the marigold grey as pictured, and it is even better in person. I also bought my best friend one of the brass drops, and she adores it.

    Kate's amazing.

  2. Oh Tara, I am very jealous. I am officially on "shop update watch" so I can score one for myself!

  3. I so miss making friendship bracelets. They were my summer camp arts-n-crafts staple! I used to safety pin 'em to my socks while I worked. :)

  4. Amy, they're really so very good. Fingers crossed for you!

  5. Thank you so much for the wonderful post on my necklaces! I'm blushing:)
