Beads of Courage Design Challenge Sponsored by Soft Flex Company at the 2014 Bead and Button Show1:00 PM
I have had the extreme pleasure of working on a very special project this year, which will be displayed at the Bead and Button Show.
Visit Beads of Courage to see Creativity in Full Circle, sponsored by Soft Flex Company. 10 glass beads were created based on drawings by 10 children in the Beads of Courage program. 10 jewelry designers chosen by Soft Flex Company were challenged to incorporate the beads into finished necklace designs that will be on display and for sale with the proceeds benefiting Beads of Courage at the Bead and Button Show in the lobby.
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.
Here is an example of a bead dreamed up by a child and brought to life by a glass artist. Won't it be fun to see this in a finished design?
Also, visit Soft Flex Company at the Bead and Button Show in booths 525, 527, 626, 628 on the show floor in order to donate to Beads of Courage. Donations of cash, checks or beads will be accepted. Donation receipts will be available.
