Circle of Hope Necklace 2002

Our thanks to all of the designers who contributed to this necklace

The Fire Mountain Gems and Beads® Circle of Hope project has raised both awareness and money for the campaign against breast cancer. The idea originated with Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' employees and offers talented bead artists the opportunity to create and donate amazing handmade beads, or Beads for a Cure.

The Circle of Hope Necklaces are dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. Fire Mountain acquired Circle of Hope Necklace 2 to call attention to the urgent need for additional funding for vital research. It is composed of breathtaking handmade beads from many different artists, a true labor of love. Each of us knows friends or family members who have been devastated by this disease. Breast cancer maims and kills; it is a disease which crosses gender, race, and age boundaries, creating havoc in its wake. We know that each of us would personally love to find the cure, if we could. If you're like us, you can only wish that a cure will be found before more loved ones are taken away from us.
