A type of jewelry created by hand. Made from flattened plastic strings which are wrapped together in a fashion similar to a french braid. Usually done with 4 strings, but can be done with 2, 6, maybe even 8. Basically one chooses 4 strings of complementing colors, and ties all of them together at one end, so they are held together at that point and the strings hang loose. You then each and pull them away from one another so that each has an opposing string (for 4: do north, south, east, west). Then you take the pair opposing one another (ie. north and south), flip them over the top so that they switch sides. Make sure to keep the little loop open. Now take the other pair. Thread the east through one of the loops created. Thread west through the other. Now flip those back to their original positions and make sure they created loops. Now keep repeating this process alternating between opposing pairs. Eventually you ought to have a squarish trinket which can be made into a bracelet or keychain when tied off at the opposite end.
