Make a Heritage Bracelet!

08.27.2013

In the tradition of the Friendship Bracelet, University Libraries is offering an opportunity to create Heritage Bracelets to promote the varied heritage of our campus community. The Friendship/Heritage bracelet originated with natives of South and Central America and became popular in the 1970's. Tradition holds that a bracelet wearer makes a wish when it is attached and when it wears off, the wish comes true.

Join us to make this easy and popular form of jewelry. We will provide instruction and patterns, work space, and the floss/string you need in a wide range of colors. Come create a bracelet based on your cultural heritage, Greek organization, favorite sports team, or anything you'd like. Flag colors and information resources available as well!

Heritage Bracelet Making Workshops: Wednesday, Sept. 4 and Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the first floor gallery. Free! Sponsored by the University Libraries Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
