7000 Bracelets For Hope: Blog Hop

Welcome Everyone!
I am very excited to be apart the 7000 Bracelets For Hope: Blog Hop today hosted by Erin of Elysian Studios and Christine of One Kiss Creations to benefit the Global Gene's Project. It is their mission to collect 7000 denim-blue inspired bracelets for families living with rare disease.
The Global Genes Project exists to raise awareness and support for the more than 30 million people affected by rare diseases. There are currently over 7,000 rare diseases identified, and 75% of those affected are children.  With the 7000 Bracelets Campaign, the Children's Rare Disease Network gives artists and crafters an opportunity to lovingly share their creative gifts with families who have a child suffering with a rare disease.

My loving contribution is called "Spunky with a touch of Denim".  I love mixing different types of media when it comes to making bracelets. I had wanted to make a cuff made out of denim embellished with stones and chain but time was not on my side.....so instead I make this lovely bracelet using one denim belt loop, white & blue shades of stone and different chain attached with split rings. I then attached feather charms to carry the person wearing it to a quiet place when needed.
I pray that the wonderfully dedicated person who receives this bracelet will be uplifted and feel just a little spunky each time they wear it.





Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting this awesome event. To see what all the other wonderful participants have created simply click on the links below and start hopping.

  12. I like how all the neutral-toned stones really make the dark blue pop in your design. I know whoever receives it will love wearing it, with the cool smoothness of the stones and chains and then that spunky closure. Very nice!
