Friendship With Humans ~ Friendship with Animals by TeaPhotography Friendship With Humans ~ Friendship with Animals by TeaPhotography
I would like to dedicate this image of "Friendship Rings" on behalf of "The Shelter Project" to ALL of my friends (and family) I have ever met on deviantART, past, present, and future, whether or not you are actually an Affiliate/Super Affiliate or not. :heart:

Most of the friends I still have here on dA, are from the past, as in near to when I first joined (10 to 5 years ago) through current, whereas some of my past friends I had met on here, I've lost contact with, but still miss, and of course I've made a few new friends currently, and it's always nice to make a few new friends in the future. :heart:

And just because you are not an Affiliate of the Project (yet) :lol: does not mean you, as my friend have not been extremely wonderful, supportive, helpful, kind, and loving in so many other ways! :love:

The Friendship Rings are explained somewhat here: Update of THE SHELTER PROJECT, 2018 and Beyond...
in the Jewelry Product section near the bottom of the page... (keep scrollin'... ;) )

Friendship rings have been a top seller since they were first introduced, both locally and via the internet (when I say the internet, I mean dA ;) ).

I believe that this is true for many reasons...

:bulletpurple: They are stretchy, and therefore if you don't mind what finger you wear a ring on, it will most likely fit any finger...
that saying, we can still get a decent measurement of one or two of your fingers and try to make sure we get you one, two, or three, that would fit you best.  I do make them in various sizes, but I do NOT vary the size greatly... except to say the ones that are for pinky-fingers or kids would be more obvious.

:bulletpurple: I have never heard of one falling apart, except for ONE, and that is because she loved it to its unfortunate demise... wearing it all the time, even to wash dishes, herself, etc., so basically it did eventually weaken the elastic, but I do not think it came apart at the knot- I could be wrong.
I would take it off to bathe or even if you wash dishes on a regular basis.

:bulletpurple: If you don't wear a ring, chances are you know someone who does!!! And therefore they DO make great gifts! :nod:
This brings me to pricing, in which case I am going to edit/update this: Update of THE SHELTER PROJECT, 2018 and Beyond...
to reflect that.

:bulletpurple: People have always appreciated an item that's pretty affordable, yet can feel like they are still helping out in the cause, and it's true, they are!!
One costs= $5.00, a 2nd one costs = $5.00, but the 3rd one costs $2.50 - where I originally had the 3rd one set at $3.50.
The reason for the price change is due to the fact that I do have to charge for shipping/handling on all products, and if you live abroad from me, that can get costly... however, if you choose all flat products, it is not as bad. For example 3 Friendship rings, would NOT be that costly, even if you are abroad from me. STILL, it is an extra cost, that the locals don't have to pay.

:bulletpurple: If you are at all concerned for the environment, this product was born from the fact that I had all of these pieces of stretchy material left over from creating the stretchy bracelets... and I was saving them, because I didn't want to just throw them away.  THEN, it finally hit me, that I could create beaded rings from them, and thus was born "The Friendship Rings".

:bulletpurple: The reason they are called "Friendship Rings" is because, in so purchasing them, most people purchase more than one at a time, and give either all or one to a friend... (I could make a matching set, if anyone is interested in having twin rings for you and a friend). ... but at the same time, you have purchased this to help animals in NEED, hence showing your Friendship to Animals, as well!
Again, it's a win, win, win.


What you see here, in this image are MOST of the current batch of "Friendship Rings"... I have recently taken them to the shelter, and I know that three are missing from here... I carry a few on my person, since they are such big sellers, but they are not photographed with these. I have also already made a few more that aren't photographed here.

I can make custom ones to a degree, such as colour or colour combinations, sizes of the pieces... some like chunkier shapes, some like round only, some like a mix of such texture, some like tiny pieces, and other like larger ones. I personally like to do a central piece, sometimes even of a semi-precious stone, which does get more expensive for me, but... not for you. :aww:

If you have ANY questions as to ANY of the ones shown here in this image, feel free to ask, either here in comments, OR, in e-mail, as always preferred for any back-and-forth conversation... it's faster for me, anyway.  Notes are still not the best way to communicate with me.

AND if you are interested, act as soon as you can, because as I said three of these pictured here are already gone... BUT, in many cases I can replicate a piece, yet I have to admit, that sometimes, they are one of a kind.

Okay.... that should do it.

Again, if you have not yet been made aware of this project going on 8 years now, feel free to check it out here: Update of THE SHELTER PROJECT, 2018 and Beyond...

The length is a bit daunting for some, however, there had been so many changes since the last official update three years, ago, as well as many more new products, both photo and jewelry, added.  Simply scroll to the section or sections that interest you the most.

The best way is by emailing me... which you can find at the top of my profile page... and then we start a conversation about which ones you do like, or if you'd rather I make something more customized etc., and the way that most people pay nowadays is through PayPal.  I know a couple of people who have wanted to order before, but they did not have PayPal, but were friends with or related to someone who did, who was kind enough to do the transaction for them, and they just paid their friend or relative back.

I hope I have answered you Q., well enough... if not, check out near the bottom of: Update of THE SHELTER PROJECT, 2018 and Beyond...
which I know is long, but it HAD to be after it took me THREE years to finally do this next official update on the project... but what you're asking about is near the bottom close to the sections that contain PHOTO PRODUCTS, and JEWELRY PRODUCTS.

And still if your questions are not answers, feel free to ask me in email! I won't obligate you to purchase anything, if you are not comfortable with something... in fact, it would just be cool to hear from you in email. :heart:
But truly, it is the best place to take care of this sort of business as my dA notes are still very convoluted and confusing and I'm still very behind, and there are way too many different types of subject matters, and I don't want to miss anything. First square on the left of profile page and you should see my email.

Thank you dear Melissa! :love: :hug:

I'm sorry, no worries... I'm always confused which might be why I have problems explaining things to others! :giggle:

Got your email, and replied, so hopefully I've been more helpful... it's just that since this project has started almost 8 years ago by now, the "system" (or lack thereof) of how to order, is STILL the same...

Basically, email me with the description of each thing you want, I give price, you use paypal.... :lol:

Like technological caveman days... seriously though, it would be good if I could have put a letter or number next to each one in the photo. I will try that another time... I'm not actually THAT techy, but you will see in the next THREE images of various jewelry, that it is a bit easier bc each piece has a "title".... and so you would email me with the "title" of the one you want. ;)

Anyway, no worries, sometimes it is confusing for someone the first time they do this with me, but after we go through the process, you'll see it's not too bad. I look forward to working with you... I know we can do it! :cuddle:

I think it would be easier and better to describe what I want and send it in the email. I have always been the type of person that gets confused every easily when reading things. Sometimes it is hard for me to comprehend what I am reading it has been that way for years. But I thank you so much for your help and understanding Tea :hug:

We are well on our way, now. Just waiting for confirmation of payment I think you are so wonderful...no worries about how we each misunderstand things easily since always. Together we can work well together. ;) :hug:

:D  Thank you for such a nice comment.... plus... thank you for your consideration as well :la: :heart: I know how much you love animals, and that in and of itself has always been one (of several) thing/s that endears you to me...

I will be uploading three more images soon, but very different from any of these three... each one will contain a group of earrings, bracelets, and necklaces... and are grouped this time, sort of by colour... so for now, this is all the new images I have of these type of items. :aww:

Beautiful rings and in such a variety of choices :wow: ( I know from experience since I own one ). Handcrafted items take so much time to create as there are so many steps involved in the design, finding the right beads etc... purchasing them and storing them etc.....one never can sell them for what the real cost is because the labor is pretty much free or the cost would be prohibitive. This is why I always refer to those as a labor of love. :heart: no matter what the cause is.  Such a wonderful update for "The Shelter Project" and such a lovely dedication to all of your friends and family :community: As always, I am deeply touched by your kindness to us all :nod:  and of course is is always my greatest pleasure to support such a wonderful cause as "The Shelter Project"  Much love to you from your Mum  Icon - Jewelled Heart by fmr0

I could NOT have said all that you have said here better myself... and it is much appreciated your comments to this nature of this nature... despite how fun they are to make, even a tiny ring like this, takes me a long time, especially when someone wants only the real teeny beads... but anyway, yes.... ALL YOU SAID... and thank you for being a CHAMPION of "The Shelter Project"! Love you tons Mum! :heart: :huggle:
