Jewelry That Is Beautiful & Raises Awareness

As October comes to a close, I wanted to take a look at some of the beautiful jewelry that's being made in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. This is a cause that is very dear to me. When my grandmother was 73, she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Our family was in shock, as she had always been so healthy. We are blessed that she is doing well and has been for a few years. Not everyone is that fortunate. I believe finding a cure for this disease is in our near future. By giving a portion of the proceeds to cancer research from these beautiful designs, I believe these ladies are truly raising awareness!
When I saw this necklace at the top of the article, I knew I wanted to include it. Made by poetsummer, it includes glass beads in various designs and shades of pink, silver charms, and an adjustable rope chain. It's a One Of A Kind Piece and sells for $42.99.

This meticulously handcrafted bracelet can be found at a lovely shop called time2cre8. Mary Lou is a very talented beadweaver and I've been in awe of her work for some time. This is a woodgrain pattern she does in peyote stitch using delica seed beads. It sells for $63.00 and 20% of the proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation in the purchaser's name.

These adorable sandal charm earrings are made in honor of all the cancer walks that are held in the fall. For $20 you can purchase these sterling, Swarovski crystal, and pearl beauties from kari1121 on Etsy.

This handstamped sterling silver necklace is dainty but powerful. It signifies the hope that there will be a cure one day! Accented with a pink Swarovski crystal, it can be found at indigosignature for only $26.00.

These pretty little earrings are made with lampwork glass ribbon beads, Swarovski crystals, and silver. For just $15 you can show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness by purchasing them at tilleyjewels.

The last piece is called a Wiggle Weave bracelet and is just so pretty and unique! Made with seed beads and Swarovski crystals, you will definitely raise awareness! It sells for $40, with $5 of the proceeds going to the St.Louis affiliate of the Susan G. Komen foundation. Handcrafted and found at JewelsbyJaci.

With all these pretty pieces, I'm sure you can find something that's meaningful to you. It's always time to raise awareness!
