My name is Barbara Thompson and I have Pulmonary Hypertension but it doesn't have me.
We use the color periwinkle to raise awareness.
I was making beaded awareness bracelets for myself. When the Pulmonary Hypertension Association
introduced the zebra as an awareness tool, I added zebra patterned beads
to my bracelet. I posted a picture of it on one of the PH Facebook pages and I was asked to make them for
others to buy. I donate 10% of the proceeds to PHA to find a cure.
Many of us have diseases or causes that we want to raise awareness of. I make the bracelets and keyrings in a variety of colors so you can raise awareness for your cause. The
beads I use are Swarovski crystals, glass, clay and acrylic in a variety of sizes and shapes.
They are strung on a stretch cord. You can choose between 2 exclusive designs; one with the word
"Survivor" or from 2 "Oval Mom" charms. Other charms include a "Hope" ribbon,
a zebra, a spoon, a cherub, butterfly, heart-shaped "Mom".
