Survivor Bracelet

About this design:

This bracelet is part of a set I made for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. My Mom is a 12 year survivor of breast cancer so this is a very dear subject for me.


Pink opal rondelles and nuggets, cherry quartz tubes and 4mm rounds, Czech glass, seed beads, brass beads, spacers, filigree bead caps, TierraCast rhodium heart and handmade clasp from 18 gauge Vintaj Parawire.

    You did such a wonderful job on this and the earrings Angela. I have 2 Aunts, 1 on each side of the family, that are survivors. Unfortunately, 1 has just had the cancer reappear…after be assured they had gotten everything. Its a hard thing…
