Kandi From A Stranger

Kandi. If you're a first time raver or have just discovered the world of raving, you'd initially think it’s some type of sweet treat. Well, you couldn't be more wrong.

Kandi are also known as rave beads. And that’s exactly what they are made of – colorful beads you can find in crafts stores. Kandi bracelets are relatively easy to make depending on how simple or intricate you want them to be. They can be as simple as one row of beads and be as intricate and complex as 3D cuffs. But the creativity doesn’t stop there. Kandi are also woven in the form of necklaces or masks. Often times they are also woven with words or charms. But however they are woven, formed, or designed, what truly matters is the story behind each Kandi accessory and how you got them.

Along each accessory comes the traditional handshake as you exchange Kandi with another raver. The handshake symbolizes and spells out PLUR which stands for Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect which are the ideals upheld in rave culture. Doing the handshake marks that moment of acceptance, either as a newbie or as a new friend. Below is a step by step enumeration on how to do the handshake (with the person you’re exchanging Kandi with):

  1. Make peace signs as you put your hands against each other (Peace)
  2. Shape your hands to form one heart (Love)
  3. Join hands (Unity)
  4. Slide each bracelet from one hand to the other and then hug (Respect)
Each Kandi is special as it is made with time and intention. It reminds you of the experience you had and the new friend you made. Kandi is part of the experience. Kandi is part of what makes the rave scene the amazing world that it is.
