This ring represents the speed of life. Friendships decay faster because people are
decreasingly making 'real' time for each other. Nowadays most contact goes through
social media, and I find this being such a waste!
Hence my variations on the friendship
ring. Rings with a flower attached on the top, from which the leaves will perish
over time whenever they come into contact with body heat and moisture. If the flower
decays, then all there is left is a bare ring. I want to make people aware of how
friendships are precious and they do not just have to dilute.
