- Three generations of women in my family have battled breast cancer. Breast cancer research is something to which I want to make a significant contribution, by sending 50% of the proceeds from the sale of these beautiful ornaments. They are assembled using the veil materials and beautiful lace trims from the vintage wedding dresses in my personal collection. Inside each ornament is a dangle made from hand-strung Czech glass seed beads, with a pink Swarovski crystal charm. Each ornament is unique, and the charms include a filigreed silver breast cancer ribbon with the Swarovski crystal centered, or a silver ribbon having Swarovski crystals throughout, or a lampwork breast cancer ribbon bead featuring the Swarovski crystal above it. The final trim piece is a pink satin ribbon bow and hanger.
- These ornaments can be personalized by using your family's laces or dresses, or as shown here, by changing or adding to the dangles. I made this ornament for my sister, and it features, in addition to the beautiful breast cancer ribbon, a birthstone charm for each of the three women in my family who have fought the disease. It makes the most beautiful visual reminder of the preciousness of these wonderful women.
The ornaments come in two sizes - 4" in diameter for $100 each, and 3 1/4" in diameter for $75 each. They make beautiful gifts for Christmas, birthdays, Breast Cancer Awareness month (October), or just to honor the woman or women who mean so much to you.
