Celiac Awareness Bracelet


A friend recently asked me to make her a Celiac Disease Awareness bracelet, and I've since made two different styles to eventually add to my web site. The color for celiac disease awareness is pale green, so I used a serpentine jade. One of the bracelets has the traditional styling, while the second one has an asymmetrically placed intricately-designed sterling silver bead.

Each bracelet will cost $45.

Celiac disease is an immune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. To find out more, visit http://www.celiac.nih.gov/.

Beautiful!
I have a niece with Celiac - I didn't know about the pale green.
Thanks for the info!

That's really nice! A friend of mine asked if I'd do a necklace to help get through her IVF treatment! Things like that mean a lot to people - it's nice you could do it for her!

I love the bracelets! A friend of ours was recently diagonsed with celiac. I didn't know about the pale green. I will have to let her know, if she doesn't already.

the bracelet is so pretty! It's so wonderful to make jewelery for someone when you know they will cherish it, and that it has such meaning. You really can't beat the feeling of crafting for a cause :)

Thank you so much on the article for the Celiac Awareness Bracelet. I wasn't aware about the color or the thought of even making one. At our church there are 5 Ladies that have it (only 70 members). In our Fellowship hall kitchen we set aside 6ft. of counterspace and a microwave just for them.
A person will not understand what they go through UNLESS you take the time to read up on it. NOW I'm going to make them something lovely to let them know I Care!

Thank you so much for sharing!
Found you through The Beading Gem!
