New Press Releases
New! You can donate to the Foundation with the purchase of a handmade, one-of-a-kind lampwork bead from the Circle of Hope Collection. Every year, compassionate lampwork artists from around the world donate beads to the Circle of Hope Necklace. Now, just in time for October Awareness Month, these incredible beads will be sold individually and 100% of the price you pay is donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Fire Mountain Gems and Beads covers all the costs of administering the program.
This year's contributions will be featured in the Jewelry Maker's 2008-09 Comprehensive Catalog. The individual beads will then be available the following year to purchase online, with proceeds going to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Visit the Circle of Hope page for information on donating your lampwork beads to this project, and to view the collection of creative beads to incorporate into your jewelry.
