Bracelet Blog Hop for The Global Genes Project

The Global Genes Project is a campaign to raise awareness to rare disease in children.
One of my blogging friends, Lori Anderson, is hosting this blog hop.  She too, is affected by a rare disease.
Jewelry artists were asked to make a bracelet with the predominate color being blue.
The bracelets will be given to one of the 7000 families that have a child with a rare disease to show them love, hope and support.
Here is the bracelet that i made.....
I used one of my lamp worked glass beads, a hand stamped tag *wish*, and several blue glass shell beads.
The shells, for me, represent unfolding mysteries.  I wish for these families that the mystery of their child's rare disease can be solved.
I had a hard time getting a good picture of the hand stamped tag.
Go and check out all the bracelets that others have made here on Lori's blog.
Scroll down to the bottom to see the list of blog participants and check out all the wonderful bracelets.
I hope I am not posting this too early, but I am getting ready to leave for an art show so I needed to get this posted before I left.
