The Beads of Courage Mission: We are growing every day, providing innovative, arts-in-medicine supportive care programs for children coping with serious illness, their families and the health care providers who care for them.
Children in the Beads of Courage Program were asked to create drawings that represent a specific word. After the drawings were finished, they were sent to glass artists who turned each drawing into a bead! We’re so thrilled that we were asked to create a piece of jewelry that is inspired by one of the amazing children in the Beads of Courage program! We received the bead below that represents courage!
Now that we’ve seen our bead, it’s time to start designing with the Creative Team! There are so many fun beads in amazing shapes and colors that we can use from our website to design with! Once our jewelry is finished, it will be featured at the next Bead&Button Show in Milwaukee! The designs will be sold to raise money for the Beads of Courage Program!
We can’t wait to get started! Keep an eye out for our finished design!
Happy Beading! – Allie
