About

Liv4Friendship's Story

Hello and welcome Liv4Friendship!
My name is Olivia Boone, owner of Liv4Friendship. Owning my own craft business is a realized dream for me that takes me back to my teenage years. I learned how to make friendship bracelets in Jr. High thanks to a friend of mine. With an entrepreneurial spirit, I eventually tried making money selling them to my classmates. That was short lived.
Four years ago, I was going through another typical Summer for my family. My school district job was short on work hours so I was short on money to make ends meet. I was borrowing money from people and going to the food shelf to take care of my family. I needed to earn more money but I also wanted to be at home with my kids. I thought of my dream of running a craft business. I remembered my middle school days of making friendship bracelets (and trying to sell them!) and decided on that, so in August of 2012, Liv4Friendship was started!
Liv4Friendship is run from my smoke-free and pet-free home in Bloomington, Minnesota.
This is more than just another bracelet shop! I love to inspire young people (and the young at heart) about the importance of true friendship and knowing their own self worth. I incorporate these into my business. To learn more about my inspirational mission, be sure to follow me on your favorite social media sites!
Remember to "Live for friendship!"
Thanks for stopping by!

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 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!

Payment
You can pay by credit card, Etsy gift card, Paypal, or money orders! See rules below concerning payment options.

CREDIT CARD: you can use it through Paypal without having a Paypal account.
Etsy shops do not receive your credit card information.

MONEY ORDER: Please read through everything here!! In the "Pay To the Order Of" line on the money order, write "Olivia Boone". I cannot cash money orders with "Liv4Friendship" on it. If you put Liv4Friendship on it, it will be returned to the address listed on the order! This will delay your order being sent to you so please write my name on it. If the order is being sent to a Minnesota address, I have to charge sales tax. MESSAGE ME FIRST before you send your money order so I can give you the correct amount to send. Also if you are using this payment option, message me so I know to check my P.O.Box!! :)

MINNESOTA CUSTOMERS: Because I'm in Minnesota I have to charge all Minnesotan orders sales tax, according to state law. The tax is added to the retail price when you checkout.
Shipping
Shipping times differ depending on the listing, so check the listing. Orders are mailed in a tan padded envelope through U.S. Postal first class mail within 3 days to 2 weeks of placing your order, depending on the listing. I add tracking to all U.S. orders and give you the tracking number when it's shipped out at no additional charge.
UK CUSTOMERS: I've been told it takes about 10 business days for orders to reach the UK. I can't track orders going overseas.
Refunds and Exchanges
To prevent the need for a refund please read through all policies and the FAQs to answer any questions you may have BEFORE you order. This includes how to find the correct bracelet size. If anything isn't right with your order, contact me within 7 days of getting your order, and we'll work something out. This will be based on the estimated date given by the Post Office as to when you should receive your order. No refunds given after 7 days.
For custom orders, I don't give refunds but exchanges are possible. Send me a message within the 7 days of receiving it and you'll be asked to mail it back to me. You'll be responsible for postage. If it's in the same perfect condition, then I'll exchange it for what you want.
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 or wrap a piece of string around your wrist and compare the length to a ruler. Take that number and minus 1, which gives you the bracelet size. 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. 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: They are made with 100% cotton embroidery floss. 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.
