Connecting To The Ones You Love, One Bracelet At A Time

Hello friends and welcome!
For the past 7 years, Liv4Friendship has been keeping friends and loved ones connected around the world by gifting handmade friendship bracelets. These loving-made bracelets are chosen by people like you who want to celebrate their best friendships, commemorate special occasions, and spread awareness to causes close at heart. I am all about spreading friendship, love, and happiness around the world. I include these values into my business.
Each friendship bracelet is handmade by me using cotton embroidery thread. I pride myself in making great quality bracelets while offering great customer service.
So who am I?
I'm Olivia Boone, the sole owner/crafter of Liv4Friendship. Running my own craft business is a realized dream of mine that goes back to my teenage years. A friend of mine taught me how to make friendship bracelets in Jr. High. I even tried selling them for a short time with little success. Oh well!
Seven years ago, I was going through another typical summer of less hours and less pay from my school district day job. I had to borrow money from friends and family just to make ends meet. I needed to earn more money to support my family but I also wanted to be at home with my kids. I remembered my dream of running my own craft biz. I figured then was as good a time as any to start. In August of 2012, Liv4Friendship was started.
Since then, Liv4Friendship has grown into a well respected friendship bracelet business. I sell the traditional candy stripe, chevron, and Chinese staircase bracelets as well as some more specialty designs. If you have a cause that you support (eg. cancer, suicide awareness) or have a loved one that deals with something, you can get an awareness ribbon bracelet based on your chosen cause.
In September, 2018 I was accepted as a RAW artist from Rawartists.org and participated in the RAW Minneapolis Presents Ovation artists showcase in November, 2018.
To learn more about me and to keep up to date on new bracelets and special offers, you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram. I love connecting with others! Can't wait to see you there!
Remember to "Live for friendship!"

Handcrafted string friendship bracelets make the perfect gifts for those awesome friends in your life. Whether it be a 'don't forget me!', or just to say 'thank you', friendship bracelets says it all. The tradition of macrame handcrafted friendship bracelets go back many years to Central America. Legend has it that you can make a wish when you put the bracelet on, and when the strings get old and fall off, your wish comes true!

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: HOW DO I KNOW MY WRIST SIZE?
A: Some bracelet listings have a predetermined size or length listed. If you need to find your size, you could measure a bracelet the recipient already owns and use that as your size needed. Otherwise you can measure the recipient's wrist with a flexible tape measure wrapping it around the wrist once or wrap a piece of string around the wrist and compare the length to a ruler. Take that number and minus 1, which gives you the bracelet size. For solid color bracelets, take wrist measurement and minus 1/2 inch. Example: A wrist measurement of 6 1/2 inches around minus 1 equals a 5 1/2 inch bracelet size. An average bracelet length is between 5 to 6 inches long, plus the length of the braided ends or loose strings which should fit most wrists. For bigger wrists and men, 7 inches seems to fit better. When checking out, make sure you have the correct sizes and colors listed in the "Notes To Seller" section of the checkout page when you buy your items so i can make your order right and sent on time to you.

Q: WHAT COLOR BRACELETS SHOULD I GET MY FRIENDS?
A: Colors can actually mean something when it comes to friendship bracelets. The following list is a compilation of lists I've found with the meanings behind the colors you can choose for your bracelets.

Black: fearlessness, strong
Blue: purity, friendship, water, loyal
Green: youth, nature, harmony, responsible
Grey: age, punctuality
Yellow: hope, sunshine, beauty, cheerful
Orange: energy, fire
Pink: love, tenderness, attachment, kindness
Red: joy, love, passion, honest
Purple: dreams, wisdom, mystics
White: purity, truth, independence

Q: HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY BRACELETS?
A: The bracelets are made with 100% cotton embroidery thread. You can get them wet but the color can fade over time and the thicker ones may twist after wearing for awhile (months most likely). You can machine wash or hand wash them in warm or cold water. Use only non-chlorine bleach, if needed. If they start to twist, you can iron them on low heat.

If you would like to order more bracelets than what is available here, I'm willing to create a custom order for you! Just message me with your request first.

Any other questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me.
