The Entry:  Hope Eternal by Dawn Doucette
Hope Eternal by Dawn Doucette - Designs by Dawn Marie
Here's my description and inspiration for the design for this beautiful piece:  This design is inspired by someone that is like a mom to me. The courage that she exhibited through her personal battle against cancer and through her routine follow-ups is remarkable.

The name of this piece is called Hope Eternal – because until there is a cure, we all hold on to HOPE!

The gunmetal chain I used as a symbol of strength as a chain links us all together and is unbreakable.

The charms are a mix of delicate and bold in shades of pink. Representing woman as a whole and individuality by the mix of fire-polished czech glass beads, pearls and druk beads.

The pendant is 2 pieces. A silver disk with HOPE on either side. The second part is a beautiful pink enameled ribbon that moves freely in front of the Hope disk.

The finishing touch on Hope Eternal is a beautiful gunmetal toggle in a leaf motif. The artistic leaves met with the soft curve of the toggle bar add a creative pop at the collar bones.

While celebrating women around the world, this particular design is in honor of one special lady. Her optimism and hope have been an example for her family, friends and all those in her life!

Beautiful piece, Dawn. Good luck with the contest.
At brunch today I gave my mil the bracelet I got from you for her. She loved it, and put it on immediately.
