7000 Bracelets of Hope Blog Hop

I am proud to be a part of this group and here is my contribution.
This beautiful blue bracelet will be shipped off 
to a family with a child who has a rare disease, 
with a note of encouragement. 
It's a feel good day!! 

My Blue Bracelet for the 7000 Bracelets of Hope Blog Hop 

Here is the focal bead on my bracelet. I captured a blue druck bead in the center to represent a seed, (our eternal soul).

Here is a close up of one of the Bee charms
which represent accomplishing the impossible
savoring the sweetness in life. 

One of the Girlfriend's "Gert" modeled my bracelet at coffee yesterday morning.
This was taken with my pbone camera so not a great quality picture but
I love how it drapes and the Teresa's  flowers  in the background just oozed Spring!

I added Bees because they do sting which hurts like a disease and seeing a loved one suffer, 
they also create honey which has wonderful medicinal purposes 
like aiding people with allergies to local pollens. 
Even more important they have been long-time symbols of 
accomplishing the impossible and savoring the sweetness in life. (honey) 
There is good and bad in every situation, catalysts for growth and learning. 
I used brass to represent strength and longevity, 
glass because it is translucent and we can see (our way) through it, 
and the enamel flower bead with a blue druck bead hidden inside
represents the seed of life deep within us that never dies, our soul.  
We can always hope for the best
and thank goodness we can give and receive love and compassion. 

Here are all the wonderful people who joined this hop 
to make bracelets for families of children with rare diseases. 
Have a fun day hopping!!
