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.
A portion of the proceeds will go to the PH Association to fund research to help find a cure to this debilitating disease.
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".
