Beads Of Courage Design Challenge - Hope

Jewelry Design by Nealay Patel

Bead designed by Andrea Delacruz from Children's Hospital in Orange County

Bead created by Diana Rast

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 were on display and sold with the proceeds benefiting Beads of Courage at the 2014 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.
