Since 2000, compassionate designer-artists from around the globe have donated their one-of-a-kind handmade beads to the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' Circle of Hope project as a way to raise both awareness and money for the campaign against breast cancer. Representing a hope for a cure, the extraordinary handcrafted beads on these pages will be available for sale online in October 2011. Support breast cancer research by donating your own handmade one-of-a-kind beads to the Circle of Hope project and by purchasing these original beads.

All proceeds from the sales of one-of-a-kind Circle of Hope Beads and awareness pins with pink rhinestones are donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.
