Bracelet Blog Hop Time!

Lori Andersson of Pretty Things is organizing this Bracelet Blog Hop were over 100 blogs are participating. We are making a blue bracelet for the campaign 7000 Bracelets for Hope that is launched by The Global Genes Project and is a campaign for childrens rare diseases. These bracelets are going to be given to one of 7000 families having children with a rare disease to show them love and support. Well, this is the bracelet that I have made: I had an other idea in the beginnig but it developed in to this and I must say that I am really pleased with how it turned out. It is a strung bracelet with montana blue 6 mm swarovski bicones and peyote tubes made by me in a jeans blue tone. It is finnished with a sterling silver lobster clasp and extension chain for an adjustable fit. The chain has a little heart charm and a swarovski bicone dangeling in the end.
