Retired Auto Industry Executive Invented New Craft Kit While Making Friendship Bracelets with Granddaughters

My Friendship Bracelet Maker includes 56 pre-cut 60-inch threads in 14 different colors.

Girls and tweens who enjoy making friendship bracelets now have a revolutionary new way to make their knotted-string creations with My Friendship Bracelet Maker™ by Crorey Creations, Inc. The kit’s unique design features an adjustable butterfly clip at the top to hold strings in place, a row of numbered pegs at the bottom to keep strings in order, and a slide-out storage tray to organize and transport extra threads – all making My Friendship Bracelet Maker the easiest, neatest and most portable way ever to create friendship bracelets.

David Crorey, a retired auto industry executive and natural problem-solver, came up with the initial concept for My Friendship Bracelet Maker while babysitting for his granddaughters and struggling to make friendship bracelets with them. He saw their system of pinning the strings to furniture and taping the loose pieces down, and he thought there had to be a better way.

Crorey’s concept quickly became a reality, since he was able to tap into some of the best talent in Detroit (engineers, graphic designers, website developers) who had unfortunately found themselves unemployed in this tough economy. My Friendship Bracelet Maker first launched in Michigan-based specialty retailers and, after successful showings at several trade shows this year, is now available in over 300 independent toy stores, as well as Hobby Lobby and Michaels stores nationwide.

“I always say: give me an everyday problem and I’ll invent a solution,” said David Crorey, Founder and CEO, Crorey Creations, Inc. “Friendship Bracelets are an age-old tradition for girls, yet there was never anything that made the process simpler and less messy. Now I find making friendship bracelets to be a relaxing and enjoyable activity that I can share with my grandkids, and I believe that many parents and grandparents will feel the same way.”

Ideal for traveling, My Friendship Bracelet Maker is a great companion for crafty kids while at camp, on airplanes, on car trips, or just about anywhere. Each kit comes with 56 pre-cut 60-inch threads in 14 different colors, as well as directions for how to create a variety of different designs. By visiting the website,, bracelet-makers can watch instructional videos or join the MyFBM Friendship Club, which celebrates the art of friendship bracelets by sharing tips, patterns, pictures and stories.

My Friendship Bracelet Maker recently won Dr. Toy’s Best Children’s Vacation Products Award and is recommended for Ages 6+ at a suggested retail price of $24.99. For more information, please visit
