As I have commented before, I feel giving flower leis at graduation a sad waste of effort and money because the graduates get such an overload of leis at one time that they cannot possibly appreciate them. Therefore this year I again have designed what I call a wrist-lei bracelet. This year's writst lei is fabricated out of handmade sterling silver figure-8 links and glass flowers and leaves. This is a simple-to-make piece which should not take more time than a flower lei to create but which should forever recall for the recipient lifetime memories of their graduation. I will post the instructions for this project on the Ben Franklin Crafts website (http://www.bfcraftclub.com/) as soon as possible. For the male graduates I suppose a graduation gift of money in a handmade card is still the best solution. Anyone have some clever non-lei graduation gifts that are easy to craft, not pricey, and useful?
