The 7000 Bracelets for Hope Blog Hop!

The Global Genes Project, launched the “7,000 Bracelets for Hope” campaign to support families and children living with rare disease.
Jewelry designer Lori Anderson came up with the idea for this blog hop, and rounded up 112 participants who have made blue jean/denim inspired bracelets to help support the cause!

Here's the bracelet that I made for the event~
Lori suggested we use an adjustable clasp, so I chose one with a hook and chain.
I used various blue glass beads - faceted, roundels, and seed beads, with silver spacers and clasp.
The focal is one of my blue stoneware ceramic beads.
I hope someone will enjoy wearing my bracelet as much a I enjoyed making it.

Click Here for Lori's list of all the other blog posts of beautiful bracelets created by the other 111 talented participants in this event!

  38. It is fun mixing beads and different textures.The blue beads teamed with the silver clasps and the copper ends I thought.I am sure the wearer will be glad to get this new style and design.Gift Ideas

  39. Thanks everyone - Since I rarely make bracelets, I had a vague idea of the multi strand concept, and this is what turned out. I actually wanted to incoporate more of my stoneware beads on the bracelet but soon found out that you only have so much room and I loved the other glass beads so much I had to use them. The stoneware ones will have to wait apparently. I'm just learning something new everyday. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments.
