The response we've received has been inspiring
Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 27, 2009
Houston based String-Ring.com celebrates its one year in business anniversary this Spring. Created by husband and wife graphic designers Tina Mansfield and Jeff Walker, the business is proud to announce the success of their Kindness Reminder Rings. "To date, we have sold several hundred String-Rings across the United State and dozens internationally," states the ring's designer, Tina Mansfield. "We've recently expanded our inventory with new sizes and have added a Kindness Community blog where we encourage bloggers to post stories of kindness they've experienced, ways to be kind tips, or thoughts and ideas about how they might use String-Ring to remember kindness. As an incentive to post, a winner will be chosen from our list of bloggers to receive a String-Ring at the end of each month."
If you haven't heard of String-Ring, then maybe you've heard of the ancient tradition of tying a string around your finger to help remember something. String-Ring, The Kindness Reminder Ring, was created to promote kindness by modernizing this old custom.
The wide sterling silver wrap ring has 4 holes that elegantly holds a piece of colored string, a trick inspired by the ancient tradition of using a tied string around your index finger to influence memory. In this case, the reminder is one of social tolerance and kindness. Each ring comes with two sets of 10 interchangeable strings, each color representing a particular act of kindness.
The colored strings can be changed as often as desired depending on the message you wish to remember or convey. For example, red is the color of love and is a reminder to be kind to one another. Blue represents tranquility, and encourages patience with others. Purple stands for empathy and serves as a sign to be tolerant of the differences between us. Silver symbolizes wisdom and understanding and is a reminder to forgive. Gold is the color of wealth and acts as reminder to give. This includes not only money, but your attention, time, knowledge, or even a smile. Green is a reminder to respect the environment and all other living things.
"The response we've received has been inspiring," says Mansfield. "A cancer survivor from Washington wrote us saying she loved the yellow reminder strings. Yellow is the color of optimism and reminded her that she will get through this second bout of thyroid cancer. We sold many String-Rings last Mother's Day with the request that the ring came threaded with the white string in order to remind busy Moms to take care of themselves too! White, which represents peace and simplicity, encourages one to slow down and take time to simply be in silence. Customers are even making their own reminders. A lady from Dallas 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 inspirations in the ring,"
The rings are priced at $24.95 each. If you'd like more information about this topic, please log on to http://www.string-ring.com/
