Friendship is one of the great experiences of life. Friends provide support, joy, and advice. They lovingly support each other and help to build a better life. Although friends don’t always get along perfectly, it would be almost impossible to imagine living without them. Sometimes we act as though we don’t like our friends, but we know just how difficult it would be if they were gone. It is thus important for us to express just how much we love our friends and the unique nature of our friendships. One of the most popular ways to express friendship these days is to make friendship bracelets together. A friendship bracelet is a simple band, usually braided, that each member of the friendship wears. Because the friends make the bracelets together they are totally unique and unlike any other pair of friendship bracelets. Wearing the bracelets sends a clear message to everyone: it says that we are friends and that we value our friendship.
The time spent making the bracelets is extremely valuable. Friends often do things together, but they don’t always do something that produces a lasting symbol of their bond. They might work on homework together, go shopping, or play a sport together. All of these are great ways to spend time with friends. Making friendship bracelets, however, produces a lasting representation of your friendship. As you spend time together to make the bracelet your friendship will grow. The process of designing a bracelet and making it is time spent solely on supporting the relationship.
Another reason why friendship bracelets strengthen friendships is that they are a constant reminder to the wearers of their bond. Besides visually representing something about the relationship, having the bracelet on the body at all times provides a tactile reminder. When wearing the bracelet you will always be able to remember your friendship and gain strength from it. The design and colors will also remind you of something unique about your relationship with the other person. This is why it is important to design the bracelet so that it conveys something true to reality. Don’t just go for style, go for the style of the friendship.
A friendship bracelet also tells the world that you are friends with someone. It proclaims the relationship and seems to say that you are not afraid of letting everyone know. As with so many other things in life, expressing what you feel helps to strengthen your feelings. When you proclaim your friendship to the world through a friendship bracelet you help to strengthen the bond. Your friend know that you are proud of the friendship and not trying to keep it from anyone. Trust is strengthened and built in this context. For friends who doubt that their best friend really likes them, making a friendship bracelet can be a cure for your problem. If they refuse you know that they aren’t very trustworthy.
With a little time and energy you can make friendship bracelets that will strengthen your friendship and help to prolong it. The bracelet will be a constant reminder, helping you know that you have a friend. When life starts to get you down you can know that someone out there supports you and wants the best for you. You will also be able to express the uniqueness of your friendship through a beautiful piece of jewelery. Most people forget that one of the greatest benefits of wearing a friendship bracelet is showing everyone a piece of cool jewelery you made with your best friend.
