As I did last year, I am participating in the 7000 Bracelets for Hope Blog Hop. This year, however, the blog hop was organized by the lovely pair of Erin Fickert-Rowland and Christine Altmiller. Ladies, thank you so very much for offering everyone this opportunity to help such an important cause. Truly, I'm honored to donate my work for this.
The Global Genes Project has asked for donations of blue bracelets from 7000 jewelry designers, various artists and crafts-folk. These bracelets, created for the campaign, 7000 Bracelets for Hope, will be given to those families who are suffering from things such as Williams Syndrome, Juvenile Dermatomyositis, and Russel-Silver Syndrome (google for more information, or go right to the Global Genes Project website).
I created two different bracelets for this blog hop. The first one features a lovely glass vintage focal that I'd found at a local bead store. Wrapped with copper and dotted with Swarovski bicones, this bracelet is a sort of hybrid between a cuff and regular bracelet. I wanted to make sure the bracelet was adjustable, so I created a simple wire clasp with a few links for the closure.
My second bracelet is more of my favorite, copper, this time with lovely lapis nuggets that were simply wire wrapped. Again, I was trying to make sure that the bracelet was adjustable, so my clasp is a handmade copper wire clasp with simple "S" links.
I'll be shipping these bracelets out this weekend, and I hope that whoever wears them enjoys them! Please check out the other lovely jewelry bloggers who've created something for this wonderful blog hop!
