Art: The New Friendship Bracelet

As we get older, those endearing friendship rituals sadly stop being a part of how we relate. We’re talking about those days when you’dwalk up to the kid with the cool socks in the playground and ask to be friends.Off you’d run to the monkey bars and by the end of the hot and sunny afternoon, the two of you would be breaking off a piece of your bracelet to remember your friendship with completing halves of a no-k gold heart. Well, why does that have to be a kid-only thing?

Hold onto your knee-highs because we’ve got an idea that will knock your socks off!

Artsake has put together a collection of perfect pairs to throw back to those easy friendship days, only now, rather than split a dinky ol’ charm bracelet, we’re thinking matching art. What says true friendship more than twinning art!? We honestly can’t think of a single thing.

Hamburger and Fries.

The burger to my fries, this perfect pair says ride or die, mostly because the best burgers are stuffed with fries and eaten late night in your car. Memories of drive thrus the world over need to be commemorated with a hamburger for me and a medium-size fries for you, because nothing says best friends like a combo meal.

Tennis anyone?

Rivals on the court but besties post-game, hanging bits and pieces of your favourite past time tells the complete story of two friends who share one common passion. And when it comes to tennis, there no such thing as winning or losing, it’s all love.

Picture Perfect.

Coming up together sometimes means you are movie star waiting to be cast. The Margot to his Richie, the Tenenbaums tell the story of a friendship that’s deeper and quirkier than most. Each piece stands alone in a single space, but you know that the complete picture is out there hanging on the wall of your other half.

Ketchup & Mustard.

No other pair on earth can match the taste of these trimmings. You know it, we know it, and it’s only a matter of time until your wall knows it. Probably the simplest, funniest, and most endearing art pair to share with your bestie, the ketchup and mustard pieces are for those whose friendships pack more flavour in a 1.25-ounce packet than any relish ever could.

The Proposal.

The final pairing says more than friends, because the Proposal is the friendship ring turned commitment ring all in one (or two) beautiful paintings… for those who are about to get on bended knee, these abstract stunners are the perfect match. Hang one for me, one for you and let the art say I do.
