Many beadmakers donate beads to Beads of Courage. It's a program that provides children coping with life threatening conditions colorful beads which symbolize the many treatments and procedures they overcome. Their Beads of Courage collection serves as a tangible, visible symbol of their accomplishments during a challenging treatment journey.
The Beads of Courage program is entered in the Pepsi Refresh Project to win a $25,000 dollar grant. If they win they will have the money to provide the program to 10 additional hospitals and support 10,000 children coping with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

My name is Jenny and I have been lampworking for about 5 years now, and love it! I love to wear unique jewelry and really love creating it. It has been my passion for many years. I recently discovered Blythe dolls and also enjoy making necklaces for them. I make my jewelry with the lampwork beads I create myself in my home studio.
