I recently saw a picture of both Willow Smith at a red carpet event sporting Thread of Friendship’s Jennifer Friendship bracelet and couldn’t help but be jealous at not only how awesome it was, but aslo how she displays friendship. Growing up, my best friend and I each had a piece of a heart shaped friendship necklace that we treasured. Threads of Friendship embodies the strong feeling that surrounds the whole concept of growing up and making real friends…I just love the idea, and it serves as a reminder that you’re never alone when you have your BFF. Complete with gold chains and tons of color, their friendship bracelets make mine look like a rock on a chain. Their website explains that Threads of Friendship is a unique line of jewelry modeled after the current friendship bracelet trend. The collection was created by fashion designer Andrea Barna and business partner, Kollene McGinley. Unique in both their design and message, the bracelets celebrate the beauty of friendship. Andrea and Kollene found inspiration for Threads of Friendship from the ideals of friendship and solidarity. Friendship is defined as “the quality or state of being friendly.” Friendship bracelets serve as a symbol of friendship, support, and unity. In the 1970s friendship bracelets became popular and were responsible for bringing friends together through the act of giving a bracelet to represent the bond of friendship. The bracelets create a sense of solidarity- linking individuals together across the world. Threads of Friendship is dedicated to cultivating friendship through the gift of our embellished friendship bracelets adorned by rhinestones and charms. A portion of the proceeds of the bracelets are donated to the Best Buddies charity and the Walkabout Foundation. Feel loved, look great and help out the world? I’ll take that any day. I guess you could say that Willow does more in her spare time than “whipping her hair back and forth.”
