Absolutely beautiful work! Providing hope through beautiful bracelets. Even better that proceeds are donated to cancer research. Thank you!

This piece is very gorgeous. The beads are smaller than I thought but I'm glad they are otherwise it would not fit on my wrist. This fit is good. Could be a smidge smaller but designs are hard to accommodate I'm sure.

About

Jewelry made to fight cancer fiercely, inspired by love.

This shop was started as a community service project in 2007 by my brother in law when he was an undergrad. He was inspired by the strength and character of the amazingly loving, charitable woman who was his aunt Mary Jo . She was defeated after a long fight with cancer.

My brother in law made many bracelets and I photographed them, described , sold and shipped them to people who wanted to help. We donated the profits to Relay for Life.
After about a year, he passed the shop on to me, and I have been slowly improving the products, expanding the designs, and donating to ever better charities dedicated to cancer research.

Currently, I donate 100% of profits to The Gateway for Cancer Research, who spend 99 cents of every dollar donated on the research itself!

Now, I also dedicate this shop to my mother's college roommate, and my mentor, Katrina Morosoff Stout. (artist, teacher, mother, strong-willed and opinionated wonder of the natural world.)

    Just a girl touched on both shoulders by cancer. I want to make a difference, so I donate all the profit from this shop to the Gateway for Cancer Research with hope that their radical research will find a way out of this predicament called cancer.

100% of the profit from each sale here is donated to the American Cancer Society (http://www.cancer.org/) and/or the Gateway for Cancer Research- in memory of our incredible aunt Mary Jo Zukoski and in memory of my mentor, boss and longtime family friend, Katrina Morosoff Stout, who both valiantly endured the horrors of their own cancer, as well as for all the countless others touched by the mysteries and tragedies of cancer.

Many of the beads that these bracelets have been made with were donated by caring Etsy members, who wanted to share the hope.

This shop raised and donated $160.00 in 2008, $250.00 in 2009,
