7000 Bracelets of Hope

2 days late but I didn't forget! I was away in Spain until late last night and whilst I could pick up emails, I was nowhere near any internet that wouldn't have costed me an awful lot of money....I did have my beads so directly from the inspiration of the Costa Blanca are two bracelets for The Global Genes Project

It's a very good cause and I am so pleased to have been able to take part. Erin has written a very eloquent post about how she feels about her bracelet and sending it out - I don't have her way with words but these simple bracelets will be sent out with love and hope for the families that receive them. 

I've kept them pretty simple - something you could wear with jeans and a T-shirt or a pretty summer dress - as I don't know who I'll be sending them to or what their personal style will be.

I've also added extension chains to both bracelets (something I usually do anyway) so that they should fit any wrist size comfortably - a great suggestion Lori.  

Please read Lori's initial blog post about the project and have a look at the other participants blogs for some more beautiful bracelets.

Rebecca! Wow. Thanks for the sweet words. I am *blushing*.

I love that everyone was able to find so many different blues and so many different moods are represented as well. I feel that this is tropical. A little getaway on your arm! Nice work, my friend.
