7000 Bracelets of Hope-Blog Hop

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Thank you to all who visit in support of the Global Genes Project and 7000 Bracelets of Hope project.  The bracelet I made for this project has a beautiful lampwork glass bead made by Alana from Flameboyance Glass.  Supporting this focal bead are czech glass beads of varying shades of blue along with a dangle chain with tiny glass dangles of blue.  The heart charm and chain symbolizes the love I send to the recipient of this bracelet and that it will give them strength.

Please support this important project by visiting the blogs of the other contributors to 7000 Bracelets of Hope and thank you to Lori Anderson of Pretty Things for inviting us to participate.
