This is my first time to be published in the Bead-it…Today magazine. This is their 4th issue and I am very proud to be in it!

7000 Bracelets of Hope is an initiative from the Global Genes | RARE project, which is an advocacy organization for individuals with rare and genetic diseases. Their symbol is a denim ribbon, a play on jeans. To find out more about it, visit the Global Genes project . This organization started the 7000 Bracelets of Hope initiative to provide blue-themed bracelets to families fighting rare and genetic diseases. The idea is that these bracelets give support and a little hope to these families. As well, the unifying blue theme may help spread awareness.
ZnetShows allowed the design team members to pick out some blue beads to create bracelets with.
I love the color blue and loved creating these bracelets for this important project!
Here are the beads I picked out and received:
Navy blue glass pearls 10mm (these are an absolutly gorgeous blue!) BDS1620-19
Chinese crystal designer glass rondelle Beads 8x5mm Light Sapphire RT101-31
These are the bracelets I created:
Leaf chain, gunmetal tone: M0512-GM
Blue Square uses one of my resin pendants.
I hope that the recipients of my bracelets enjoy them and can feel the love that went into creating them.
Thank you ZnetShows for this opportunity!
