make kandi jewelry

My sister's kind of a hippie (in case you couldn't tell by the rad art in her new college housing). She's into peace, love and being nice to people. That sorta stuff. Being all happy-feely, she makes these awesome plastic bead bracelets to express her…ya know…feelings. I guess. I don't entirely grasp the concept, but they're super-cute and I'm planning on having her show me exactly what goes into this when I visit her over Thanksgiving. She gets intricate patterns over at, and they have all sorts of tutorials there as well.

Are any of you guys into this? I'd love to see examples of how some of you all make Kandi jewelry! According to my (much hipper than me) sister, it's all the rage right now.
