Who couldn't use a little reminder in their
stressful lives to slow down and pay attention
to something we often
is, how we interact with others in our
new, trendy, chic piece of
jewelry you can customize yourself to
promote kindness is now available.
String-Ring is the newest trend in
interactive jewelry. Created with the hope of
promoting kindness, this
Kindness Reminder Ring has a very heavy
60's PEACE & LOVE feel. The sterling silver ring
is designed to be
threaded with interchangeable colored strings
and is inspired by the old custom of tying a
string around your
finger to remember something, in this case ...
kindness. Each ring comes with a set of 10
strings, each color
representing a particular act of kindness.
The colored strings can be
changed according to the act of kindness you
wish to remember. Some examples:
Red or Pink is the color of
love and reminds us to be kind to one another.
Blue represents tranquility,
and should remind us to be patient with others.
Purple stands for empathy
and should remind us to be tolerant of the
differences between us.
Silver stands for wisdom and
understanding and should remind us to forgive.
Gold is the color of wealth
and should remind us to give. Not just money but
our attention, time,
knowledge, or even a smile!
Green reminds us to respect
our environment and all other living things.
Orange represents energy and
enthusiasm and reminds us to laugh. Especially
The response i've received has
says String-Ring creator, Tina
A cancer survivor
wrote to me saying she loved the yellow
reminder string. Yellow is the color of optimism
and reminds her that
she will get through and rise above her second
bout of thyroid cancer. White was a popular
color for Mother's
Day, reminding busy Moms to slow down and take
time for themselves. White represents peace,
life and simplicity.
Customers are even making their own reminders. A
lady bought her niece a ring for her first
communion gift and asked that the white
string be used first, to remind her of her
faith. I absolutely love that
people are finding their own
inspirational reminders in the Reminder Ring.
My hope with String-Ring is to
eventually expand the line with other items that
A couple ideas are
String-Ring key chains for conscious driving to
remind drivers to
think and reconsider before exhibiting road
rage, and String-Ring money clips to remind us
to think about the
products we are buying (are they environmentally
friendly and were the people involved in their
making paid a fair
wage?), and a String-Ring journal to encourage
us to simply take responsibility for our own
individual thoughts and actions,
reminding ourselves that we live in busy
communities and what makes those
communities strongest is treating one
another with respect and kindness.
Tina has donated the first 100
String-Rings to The Rachel's Challenge Project.
Rachel was the first victim of
the Columbine school shooting in 1999 and
her father, Darrell Scott, travels the globe
speaking to high-school
students at assemblies in the hope of
promoting kindness and tolerance.
The rings are affordably priced
at 24.95 each.
