The Global Genes Project 7,000 Bracelets For Hope

The Global Genes Project  volunteer team continues to collect blue jean/denim inspired bracelets for families living with rare disease, the campaign is called 7,000 Bracelets for Hope.”

To help raise awareness they are asking 7,000 jewelry designers, volunteers from the craft community and various artists to donate one bracelet to this campaign to show their support for kids living with rare disease, disorders or conditions. These bracelets will then be distributed to participating families.


As February 29, marks  the fifth international Rare Disease Day, I thought I would make a few more bracelets:

I also found these nice ceramic beads at my local craft store – I liked the feel of the chunky beads. The bracelet is finished off with seed bead/ceramic button clasp:

This bracelet is made of a lucite flower with CZ center, and cut glass beads:

Here is a charm bracelet, ready for some personal photos to be inserted into the small frames:

A delicate memory wire bracelet with vintage glass flower bead dangles:

Another memory wire bracelet.  This time with Asian ceramic beads that I got many years ago when we lived in Australia:

And finally, a lampwork focal with flowers that I made:
