7000 Bracelets For Hope

While perusing Michelle’s blog after signing up for the button swap, I came across her blog about the 7000 bracelets for hope campaign. The Global Genes Project (GGP) volunteer team is collecting blue jean/denim inspired bracelets for families living with rare diseases.  The project is on going, and Nicole Boice of the GGP kindly informed me that they anticipate the campaign will last throughout 2011 – so, it’s not too late to join!

I thought the blue in my bird a week bead would look great made into a blue jean/denim themed bracelet, so I used one of the three beads as a focal and went from there.   I added some Czech pressed glass flowers with sterling beads, tube beads, seed beads, and finished it off with a sterling clasp.  It’s a cute lighthearted design, and would  look great worn with denim. I made a second one with the actual bird a week bead – you can find it in my Etsy store.
