Cancer Bracelets Amongst Other Things...

Wow! It's been quite some time since I've posted! We've had a lot going on recently, including family being in town, and my husband's birthday, plus father's day to contend with! But finally, things have (hopefully) slowed down to a normal pace again, and other than dealing with the summer heat I should be all set and ready to spend some more (much needed) time with TPD!

So, by now you should know I've been working on some Cancer Bracelets for Sandy's office. After a LOT of thought (More than I should have spent, but for some reason my brain wasn't working right..) I've come up with a look, feel, and cost that I'm comfortable with.

I'll sell these pretties for $5.00; they are made mostly out of plastic and pewter, and are strung on an elastic cord. They supply that less expensive option that was lacking from the supply out there, while still looking nice enough to wear with almost any outfit. I'm also working on some Chinese Crystal bracelets that will run between $10.00 and $15.00, and those are the ones I'm going to be able to offer a donation from.

While I'm originally only making these for the cancer patients at Sandy's office... Look forward to the option to purchase these (and many other) awareness bracelets on the webpage, soon!

Also, don't forget to friend us on Facebook, or if you're reading this from Facebook, make an account and join us on here! It always makes it easier to keep up with projects when you know someone is paying attention. :D For those of you on Twitter, we also have an account @ThePrismDragon! (And to give you a hint on my OCD Perfectionism... I seriously just spent the past 10 minutes trying to come up with a way to fill this space so that my blog post wouldn't look so weird under this picture. No wonder these bracelets took so long to come up with!! In other news: Hah! Mission Accomplished. :D hahaha)


  1. I LOVE the bracelet. My mother's family has had to deal with wayyy to much cancer. This is a great way to show support.

  2. Caitlin - I'm so sorry to hear that your family has experienced cancer, but I'm very glad that you like the bracelets. Hopefully, once I get the donations figured out, we can do more about the problem than just raise awareness. :)

    Also... thank you for commenting!!! You have no idea how much it means to me, that someone appreciates this other than just my mom. :D haha

  3. Those bracelets are super pretty and for a good cause... If only I had a dime to my name :(

  4. Annah - That's why I created these bracelets. There are a LOT of people with very little money to their name; Sandy and I were (and still are) in that same boat when we started this whole project. Cancer treatments are also hugely expensive, and often today people do not have insurance when they begin the treatments. So we decided to provide an option to those who could not afford the $25-$50 bracelets that are out there, but still want to show that they are fighting, or that they are victorious, or they support their friends or family members through their battles.

    I know even $5.00 is hard to put towards a trinket when you're living paycheck to paycheck, even if it IS for a good cause.. but we're still going to troop forward with these in the hopes that someone out there finds them helpful. :)
