Tuesday Tips and Tricks: Spreading Awareness Using the Craft You Love

With Breast Cancer Awareness month just around the corner, I wanted to take the time to highlight Fusion Beads Shop by Color filter tool to help you navigate all the Swarovski colors we have available on our website. While Fusion Beads has shared quite a few beautiful Breast Cancer Awareness jewelry designs on the site, we wanted you to know that you can use the same designs to create a meaningful gift for a variety of causes. We believe that it is important to show the people you love (or even for yourself) that you are thinking about them. I put together a few different examples below on how to incorporate specific colors into your jewelry to help raise awareness in your community. For more color examples please check out a blog we shared a few years ago,  “Share Awareness For All Cancers”.

Fusion Beads has quite a few design ideas for Awareness jewelry. We have recently designed a new necklace, called Rock The Pink Necklace. You can find this Inspiration Piece and more under the  Awareness Inspiration Projects.

These designs can range from elegant to fun and quirky and are sure to raise the spirits of someone close to you, all while using the craft you love! The examples below focus on Breast Cancer Awareness but can be re-designed to help spread awareness for a variety of causes.
