You can find all of the beads that I used here!


Hey guys, it's Megan!


In this video I'll be showing you how to make 10 friendship bracelets inspired by Taylor Swift albums!


I saw this trend on TikTok where people were making friendship bracelets for the eras tour and I thought it looked like fun (and lets be real, I have way too many beads 😅)


Sadly I wasn't able to get tickets, but I've been having fun watching the livestreams people have been doing!


I turned this video into 10 "shorts" for Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube - if you prefer to watch that way I've embedded them below!


Debut


For the main part of this bracelet, I used 0.5 mm stretch cord and some 3 mm seed beads.


I sealed the knot with some UV Resin, cured it under my UV Lamp, then used jewelry pliers and a jump ring to attach an acrylic butterfly charm.


Fearless


I kept this bracelet super simple with some 0.5 mm stretch cord, some metallic star beads, some 3 mm seed beads, and some 4 mm pearl beads.


I sealed the knot on all of the bracelets made with this stretch cord with some UV Resin and cured it under my UV Lamp.


(Side note - I hate YouTube Shorts so much. WHY WON'T THEY LET ME PICK MY OWN THUMBNAIL?!?! 😩 Apparently you can on Android but I'm way too deep in to the Apple ecosystem for that lol)


Speak Now


The Speak Now bracelet was really special, because I finally found a use for these charms from an old Taylor Swift perfume that I accidentally broke about 10 years ago. Honestly I'm kind of impressed that I knew where they were 😅


I used a 1 step looper tool, some 20 gauge wire, and some purple beads to create the base. I used pliers to attach the loops, and made the closure using gold chain, jump rings, and a lobster clasp.


Red



The Red bracelet had a few more steps involved - I'd highly recommend watching the YouTube video before you make this one!


This one was a Pura Vida Style bracelet made with waxed cotton cord. I made the charm using a silver heart bead, a red faceted gem bead, and some 22 gauge wire.


1989



The 1989 bracelet was super easy. I just strung some white butterfly beads, blue faceted gem beads, purple faceted gem beads, and some silver balls on to some 0.5 mm stretch cord.


I sealed the knot with UV Resin, cured it under my UV lamp, and that was it!


Reputation



I made the Reputation bracelet a little bit differently. This bracelet sort of reminds me of the Martha Calvo style jewelry that was popular a few years ago.


For this one, I used some 26 gauge wire for the base, and strung on a mixture of assorted black and white beads. I added a piece of silver chain from an old broken necklace, and used magnetic clasps on either end to create the closure.


Lover


The Lover bracelet was another simple one. I used more of that 0.5 mm stretch cord to combine some of these aesthetic heart beads with some glass beads that my aunt gave me. I sealed the knot with some UV Resin, sured it under my lamp, and that was it!


Folklore

I think the Folklore bracelet was my favorite. This was inspired by Taylor Swift's Folklore cardigan.


I just strung some 3mm seed beads and some silver star beads on to a piece of 0.5 mm stretch cord, and sealed the knot with UV Resin.


Evermore

Next is Evermore. I like this album, don’t get me wrong, but there isn’t really anything about the “aesthetic” of it that really stood out to me. So I just combined a bunch of orange and gray beads to match the album cover.


Midnights


And finally we have Midnights! I’ve always been a big fan of the whole galaxy/star motif, so I had no trouble finding beads for this one.


This is my favorite album Taylor Swift has released in a while - I think my all time favorite will always be Red though!


Which Taylor Swift Era was your favorite?

I started my own blog recently. I found many cool vintage cleaning images and ideas for photos on depositphotos. It is my favorite stock platform. Hiring photographers and models for custom photoshoots can be expensive. Stock photos provide a cost-effective alternative, especially for individuals or businesses with limited budgets. I use stock photos for my blog. So convy
