Bracelet Making Blog Hop: Reveal Time!

I am participating in a bracelet making “blog hop” today organized by Lori Anderson in support of an important cause.  Jewelry designers from all around the country are joining together to design bracelets and support The Global Genes Project, an advocacy group who launched  “7000 Bracelets For Hope”, a children’s rare disease campaign.  The bracelets will be donated to 7000 families that have children with rare diseases to show them support.  There was only one requirement for the design.  It must be in denim colors.  Blues other turquoise blues are not my natural color palette.  This was a bit of a color challenge for me.  So I kept it simple in color but played with the shape a little.  You have the opportunity  to check out 112 of the 7000 denim inspired bracelet designs through this fun blog hop designed to bring awareness to this important cause.

Thanks for stopping by!  Keep hopping along and check out all bracelets made by these other talented designers.

  1. I find blue a little tricky to work with too, but I’d have never guessed that with you and this stunner of a bracelet! What an excellent design! I love the sodalite!

  2. This challenge is right up your alley, Tracy! I was excited to see your name on the list. I am always in love with what you create. I have a hard time with bracelets.
