A Special Gift for a Friend

This is a special bracelet designed and made by my daughter, Melissa at and
If you look back at 1/17 on this blog, you will see a photo of six very special "old" girlfriends from elementary and high school on a weekend trip to the Biltmore. The seventh friend missed the trip due to surgery and life's complications. This bracelet was designed and made for her. She is a breast cancer survivor. We wanted to give her a special gift to let her know of our concern and our love for her. She wears a lot of black clothing so Melissa designed the bracelet with the black, clear and pink Swarovski Crystals. Each of he sterling silver charms has a special meaning. The Cross is a symbol of our friend's Christian faith which has given her the courage to remain strong. The cancer ribbon, engraved with "survivor" on one side, is a symbol of her fight against breast cancer. The heart, placed as the center charm, is a symbol of the special friendship shared by our group of "old" girlfriends. This beautiful bracelet is the perfect gift for our friend! We all love it. Thank you, Melissa!
