Description from

When I was in grade school, I was
obsessed with making friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss. My friends and I would spend hours (both in and out of class) knotting colorful cuffs and trading them with each other. These beaded versions are the next generation of friendship bracelets. Because of their flower motifs (and because of my personal and professional obsession with Shakespeare), they’re named after the young heroine of The Winter’s Tale.
