Awareness Jewelry with a Dual Purpose

Recently I was contacted via my Designs by Dawn Marie Facebook page about a custom order.  The woman saw the awareness jewelry I had created in the past and wanted me to make something really special as a gift.  I cannot tell you her story because I did create these as a gift, and the recipient has not yet received the gift.  BUT what I can say is she asked me to create an awareness bracelet that would represent both diabetes awareness and breast cancer awareness.

I love creating something so special, so near to one's heart.  So I jumped at the chance and truly let my creativity run.

The pink ribbon represents breast cancer awareness and the gray ribbon symbolizes diabetes awareness.  Coincidentally, pink and grey are a GREAT color combination together.  I created not one, but two bracelets.  Each one has it's own message and is slightly different while both symbolize hope, strength and love.

I found these beautiful rose shaped beads that truly just embodied the message in these bracelets.  They are soft and elegant representing the true feminine self.  Roses are truly a beautiful flower and so are the women involved in this custom order.  And of course, the pink and grey ribbon are the awareness ribbons for breast cancer awareness and diabetes awareness.

I feel so blessed to be able to use my creativity to create something so special.  If you are looking to have a piece of custom beaded jewelry created with a symbolic message, feel free to e-mail me.  I have a chart of awareness ribbon colors on my website at:  http://www.DesignsByDawnMarie.com for you to reference if you are looking for something special.

I can't wait to hear the reaction when this gift is given.  I only wish I could be a fly on the wall to hear the squeal of happiness!
Have a day full of love!

Dawn,
The bracelets are very pretty and I'm sure the person that is receiving them is going to love them. I have been thinking about doing awareness jewelry a lot lately. I think it is a pretty way to let someone show their support and to help spread the word.

That is a great color combo. I knew it would be pretty when I heard the causes. Those roses are nice. Not typical at all.
