Wings of Hope
(newest in Lexie's Jewelry line)
Finally here, the newest piece in Lexie's Jewelry.
In case you do not know about Lexie, she is a fifteen year old girl with brain cancer. She was first diagnosed when she was only 3 1/2 months old.
Very fortunately, her tumor and its effects have been stable recently. However, she never knows when that might change. Plus there are so many kids she has known in her short life who have not been so lucky. How hard is it to tell your child that one of their friends has died of the same disease they have?
For several years now, Lexie's patient partner and good friend of mine, Melanie Horris, has been running in the Boston Marathon raising money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Each year, together, we have designed a piece of jewelry in Lexie's honor. A portion of the proceeds has gone to the Dana-Farber. This year's piece is Wings of Hope.
Our first piece was Lexie's bracelet. It is made with five different colors of Swarovski Pearls and Bali Silver spacers. It is 7 ½ inches long and has a lobster claw clasp and a 2 inch extender for easy fit. The meaning of the colors in Lexie's Bracelet were chosen by Lexie. (Click on the link above to see more)
This year's piece is a pendant we have named "Wings of Hope". The white Swarovski Pearls used, have the same meaning of HOPE as in the original bracelet. (We may expand, in the future to include the other colors in Lexie's bracelet but for now the angel is white)
The pendant is strung on an 18 inch silver plate Snake chain.
The "Wings of Hope" pendant is available on the website: "Wings of Hope"
Do stay tuned as more is coming!
