Trying to Stay Optimistic

About this design:

My Brother-in-law was just diagnosed with Hodgkins Lympnoma. I made this in support of him. I have thought about sending this to his girlfriend as a thank you to taking such good care of him but not sure if its good enough. I haven't met her yet (they live in Alabama, me in Colorado)


crystal or glass beads (don't remember correctly, didn't write it down) and silver tone clasp

    Thank you ladies. The bracelet just kinda jumped together on its own :) . I Think I will put it in the mail today! And thank you Jewel for your prayers, it means so much.

    I think it is a lovely piece and you should send it to her. Hodgkins Lymphoma has come a long way in treatment regimen’s in the last few years, as well as staging procedures, so you have every reason to be optomistic. Prayers and healing energy are being sent your way.

    When we are having strong feelings, positive or negative, they are popping out via our fingers. And born to jewelry. Doesn’t?
    We all pray the best to you .
