7000 Bracelets of Hope Blog Hop

The rules of the hop -- make a bracelet in an adult size in blue.  The bracelets will be sent to The Global Genes Project, an advocacy group for children's rare disease awareness.  The Global Genes Project then sends the bracelets to one of 7000 families having children with rare diseases to show them love and support.

I chose the gemstone Chrysocolla due to the healing properties and paired with red czech glass adding a hope charm dangle.  I have been in a blue and red mood for creating. Please visit the other participants of the hop below, especially our courageous leader Lori Anderson. Enjoy and have a fantastic day.

I am enclosing the following poem, a favorite of mine with the bracelet:

"While wandering a deserted beach at dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. there were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, "It makes a difference for this one." I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish." — Loren Eiseley
