Update on the Gobal Genes Project Blog Hop

Here is the finished bracelet that I created for the Global Genes Project. I included a card with my favorite message of hope: Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

The bracelets will be sent to The Global Genes Project, an advocacy group who launched "7000 Bracelets for Hope", a children's rare disease campaign. The bracelets are given to one of 7000 families having children with rare diseases to show them love and support. Go to Lori Andersons blog for the complete list of other artists that have created a denim blue bracelet for one of the families. There are an amazing 112 artist's on the list!! Have fun checking out some other fun blue bracelets.  And a big Thanks to Lori for organizing this.

Look What I won!

A few weeks ago, Lorelei Eurto had a contest on her blog to win some books. All you had to do was leave a comment on her blog. And to my surprise, I won the glass bead making book. Since I love gorgeous lampwork , I was thrilled! I have been a collector for years and I also use lampwork in some of my designs. Here is some of my collection that I can’t part with.



The book arrived today and it is full one beautiful eye candy. The title is “Creating glass beads” by Jeri Warhaftig. It is fun to look at because I have purchased beads from some of the contributors for this
book.


Along with lots of pretty lampwork, there are some nice jewelry designs pictured.

7000 Bracelets For Hope~~Blog Hop


Lori Anderson has started another blog hop and this one is for a heartwarming cause. So I jumped on, and signed up to participate in the “7000 Bracelets of Hope” blog hop. I am creating a denim blue bracelet that I will post here before I send it out. The reveal date is the 16th.

Here is a sneek peek of what I am making.  I wanted to use a tiny sterling silver cross to represent Hope.

"Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. Psalm 62:5



Does this sound like something you would like to participate in?
To join the hop, you need to make ONE bracelet in an adult size in a denim/blue jeans-inspired theme. The bracelets will be sent to The Global Genes Project, an advocacy group who launched "7000 Bracelets for Hope", a children's rare disease campaign. The bracelets are given to one of 7000 families having children with rare diseases to show them love and support.  Go to Lori's blog for the complete scoop.
