A couple of days ago I uploaded a MIZZE Jewelry video showing the making of a Kabbalah Friendship bracelet and I thought this is a good opportunity to discuss friendship bracelets in general.
When you want to give something to someone you like, perhaps your best friend, it can be quite a challenge to find a proper gift. The right thing to do may seem hard to figure out, because if you go for a gadget or device, there’s no saying whether they already have it, or will like it, and they often cost a lot. Then there’s all the traditional gifts, things that you give when you’re out of ideas, even though you know they will end up collecting dust on a shelf. What you need is something inexpensive, that’s personalized, and says how much you care for him or her. And that’s why the popularity of friendship bracelets has been going up lately.
Friendship bracelets have a long history. Originally, they came from the native species living in Latin and South America, who created these bracelets using primitive fabrics, extracts from plants, and other natural ingredients. They were mostly meant as a decorative element, worn along with jewelry. They stood the test of time and are now just as popular as they once were. These bracelets come in an impressive amount of colors, designs and patterns, and that’s the key to their success. There’s so many possibilities out there, and so many designs available, that none of them look like any other bracelet, and they are each unique. By giving something like that as a gift, you’re cementing a friendship by going out of your way to get something personalized, instead of just giving out the latest popular gadget, and since they can go with any wardrobe, they will be worn regularly.
There’s many models of friendship bracelets, and they can be found at many different locations, for various prices. The price and availability will depend on the type you want. Some bracelets are still created in the same traditional way that previous ones were made, by hand and made by a single person. These are often more expensive, but also even more unique, because they use very exotic color patterns and designs. Others can be bought cheaply at chain stores and are made in factories, but also can make great gifts, as long as you take the time to pick a design you know your friend will like. Often part of the fun is going through the many patterns and finding just the right one you want to give out. You can also pick two similar ones so that you both have a matching pair.
The whole purpose of a friendship bracelet is to show how much you care for a friend. They don’t provide an actual use like a game console would, but instead they are much more personalized, and usually cost a lot less money. It’s something your friend can carry on him or her to recall your presence, and remember the friendship that grows between the two of you. It’s great for kids, but also great for an adult as well, since these bracelets never grow old, and are always amazing gifts to give.
