Recreate the look in your own at-home jewelry studio with dainty beads, a straightforward rainbow pattern and thin, neutral string.

Take your Taylor Swift friendship bracelet-making game up a notch by adding unique and meaningful charms to represent your favorite songs and albums, much like TikToker @rachelerin.s. Her inventive creations feature song titles alongside representative charms and trinkets. Think whimsical flowers and butterflies for "Lover" and shiny purple stars for "Lavender Haze."
3. Eras Tour String Friendship Bracelet
Swiftie and TikToker @amanda_ryan22 shows off a braided flat string bracelet that pays homage to the Eras Tour itself. We're in awe of the talent and precision it must have taken to perfectly weave white letters into a colorful string arrangement—and while we might not all have the bracelet-weaving skills of @amanda_ryan22, there are plenty of string bracelet tutorials to help simplify the process!
4. Glow-in-the-Dark Friendship Bracelet
OK, let's face it: We aren't all cut out for DIYing our jewelry. If you're in a pinch but don't want to miss out on the Eras Tour friendship bracelet frenzy, artisans on Etsy have you covered. One fun example comes from Etsy crafter SeaDawgDesign, who offers adorable and affordable glow-in-the-dark friendship bracelets for Swifties who aren't up for making their own.
5. Delicate Floral Friendship Bracelet
With the recent release of Speak Now (Taylor's Version), many Swifties are embracing the purple color scheme and whimsical vibe. Draw inspiration from TikToker @bijouxlasotita, who demonstrates how to make a Speak Now-themed bracelet using tiny beads tied into floral patterns on thin, clear string. We're totally enchanted.
6. Friendship Bracelet Dress
Who says friendship bracelets are only for trading and wearing on wrists? Creative TikToker @itslucysfashion might just win the bracelet game with her incredible Taylor Swift friendship bracelet dress, which is just as impressive as it sounds. Lucy hand-beaded the top of a dress and adhered completed bracelets to the bottom, creating a Taylor Swift concert outfit that undoubtedly garnered compliments galore.
7. Nylon String Friendship Bracelet
Want to put letter beads at the center of your friendship bracelet design? Check out this video from TikTok crafter @braceletsmadebyliz, who uses wax-coated nylon string and simple letter beads to create cute wearable art complete with Taylor-related phrases. Make a batch of these with your besties or keep them all for yourself—either way, they're simply lovely.
