Beads of Courage
Exciting new project!! So, Beads of Courage is teaming up with Soft Flex Company for a really cool and unusual design challenge! For those of you who are not familiar with Beads of Courage, they provide and utilize arts-in-medicine for children with serious illnesses. It’s not only about the children, but also young patients and even families that are coping with treatments for their loved one.
Here is where I’m involved. 10 children in the Beads of Courage Program were asked to create drawings that represented a certain word, such as love. Once the drawings were completed, they were sent to 10 individual glass artists who then turned their drawings into beads. Those beads were then send to 10 designers and asked to create a piece of jewelry that is inspired by the word.
It just so happens that I am one of those designers! The designs will be featured at the next Bead&Button Show in Milwakee and also featured in a book! The designs will be sold to raise money for the Beads of Courage Program. I’m supper excited about this amazing opportunity and can’t wait to see what the other designers come up with!
My word is hope.
