Nearly a year since the first sale of Taylor Swift's UK tour tickets, the "Love Story" songstress is gearing up to launch the UK segment of The Eras Tour, marked by her stop at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium on June 7th.

Eagerly anticipating fans of the 34-year-old superstar can look forward to more than her music, which spans an 18-year career. They can also get caught up in the unique tradition Swifties (fans) have formed on The Eras Tour – crafting and swapping friendship bracelets during concerts.

Attending Swift's concert or watching Disney+'s The Eras Tour movie — crafting friendship bracelets is a simple task. All you need is elastic and beads.

The Fournine Clay Beads Bracelet Making Kit available on Amazon for £9.99, is a great option for all your bracelet-making needs. It features a variety of beads including polymer clay beads, letters, spacers, and cute charms. This kit also comes with essentials such as elastic string, scissors, and tweezers.

Alternatively, consider the Goody King Jewellery Making Kit from Amazon (£26.99) which provides a range of glass seed beads in an array of colours, as well as black and white letters and silver-coloured charms. This means you can craft vibrant bracelets to represent different eras.

Swifties have taken to spelling out song titles or lyrics on these bracelets. For this, consider getting the Funtopia White Black Clay Beads Bracelet Making Kit from Amazon, available at £8.49 (previously £9.99). This can give a distinct touch to your bracelet, enchantingly reminiscent of Swift's album Reputation.

If you’re short on time, there’s a range of ready-made friendship bracelets you can purchase as a memento of the occasion. For example, Monica Vinader’s Linear Disc Friendship Bracelet (£88), which comes in a fetching shade of coral; or Swarovski’s Infinity Bracelet (£69), which shines with a charming heart-shaped pendant.

You can currently get Taylor Swift concert tickets via several ticket resale platforms. However, be aware that according to AEG and AXS, these tickets should not be resold after an initial purchase.

Platforms such as Viagogo and Vivid Seats enable fans to purchase resale tickets from other fans. Although, it must be noted that many event organizers discourage ticket resale after initial purchase and may not authorize admission for everyone with resold tickets.

Fans with tickets from resale marketplaces are encouraged to carefully review the ticket conditions provided by the original point of sale. These could be from Ticketmaster, Live Nation etc., to avoid any issues during the event. Should the tickets be found to be second-hand, they might be voided, putting fans at risk.

Viagogo further adds, "Viagogo is a regulated marketplace where fans have the guarantee."

Tickets went on sale from 23 May and can be purchased for £9.99.
