                              Bracelet of Hope

The simple, yet beautiful bracelet is a companion that travels along your healing journey with you.
At first it is a distraction.  On your wrist the double stranded elastic banding can be twisted and played with
any time you think about your miscarriage (like we did and often).
As time goes by, your bracelet becomes a symbol of hope.  Hope that one day, joy will come back to you.
The larger center bead (made of aventurine jade) is hand carved and is a tangible symbol of hope.  The
light green color of the beads is soothing to the eye.

The bracelet of hope can be worn everyday and blends into any style of dress from casual to black tie.
Since jade is naturally occurring, each bracelet will vary slightly in color.  The bracelet is approximately 7"
around with the smaller beads being made of semiprecious jade.

Each bracelet of hope is placed in a white organza bag with a bookmark attached and a note inside that
reads: "You received this bracelet from someone who cares.  Know this bracelet is a tradition, based on
friendship, caring and hope.  Our hope is that it helps you through your healing process (as it did for us),
and that it is a reminder that you are not alone."  
There are also directions on how to use the bracelet of hope on the note.

The order is wrapped in white tissue paper.
