7000 Bracelets of Hope

Here is my bracelet for the rare disease awareness blog hop!

The theme was to make bracelets that go with blue jeans so I took the opportunity to use some artistic wire with a new color combo I have been experimenting with for my pillow beads


Since we don't know the wrist measurements for out recipients I made an adjustable clasp by making wire wrapped figure 8s. I have worn it on 2 different occasions to test it's comfort and I was very pleased that it attracted several comments as well as proving comfortable and durable.
Check out the full list of participants here!
