Gimp Chic

Does anyone remember gimp from the 90s? With the tons of different colors, there were limitless possibilities. I think I still remember how to do the box (double, triple, quadruple, twisted whatever lol), chinese staircase and butterfly. I wish I remembered how to do the cobra and double cobra! Why do I mention this?

I ran across an etsy site that makes jewelry from gimp and chains. The jewelry is so cute! but I wish I had thought of it first. That being said, I think I'm going to try to re-create some of these looks.

Could gimp make a comeback?
