7000 Bracelets for Hope

Welcome to the 7000 bracelets for hope blog  hop. To join the hop  you needed to make ONE bracelet in an adult size in a denim/blue jeans-inspired theme. Basically, any blue bead will do! 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. I hope my bracelet with remind the wearer that there is hope and people who care, people that are trying to make a difference.

 Turquoise, coral, porcelain and lapis
