Now that I am going through my own experience with cancer, awareness jewelry takes on a whole new meaning. A very dear friend gave me a pretty pink breast cancer bracelet and I wear it proudly as a survivor of this dreadful disease. I think awareness jewelry is a great way to show your support for the special people in your life who have been affected by cancer or disease. Different groups have adopted different colors for the cause they represent. Breast cancer is the color pink. Gynecological cancer is the color teal. On Saturday May 4th I am excited to be part of an event which is hoping to raise money for women's cancers. Run 4 Your Life is the event with proceeds going to the Maureen Russo nonprofit organization. Their mission is to raise awareness of gynecological cancer. It is a very small thing to do, but I look forward to creating some beautiful teal items with crystals and teal sea glass. Teal sea glass isn't common, so I will probably make jewelry with teal crystals and white sea glass as well:) Awareness jewelry can be a meaningful gift for someone you love.
