I was touched recently by the story of my friend Nancy Rosetta’s mom. Dolly had a stroke, and Nancy and her sisters have been blogging about their experiences.
Nancy is an accomplished jewelry maker, and found solace during a stressful time making “stroke bracelets” with her sisters. Read more about how the concept of “One Red Bead” came into being.
I love the idea of making jewelry that represents a concept or makes me think of someone…while making jewelry for the sake of making a pretty piece is fulfilling as well, there’s just something about having a piece around your wrist or neck that reminds me of my family or a special time in my life.
I guess that’s why “Brag Bracelets” are so popular. 🙂
Get well soon, Dolly…you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
