Locket for Hope: Necklace and Dangle Earring Set Featuring Preciosa Czech Crystal Beads, ''Hope'' Beads and Awareness Ribbon Locket Pendant Locket for Hope

There's nothing more powerful than wearing jewelry with a special meaning or personal message. This week's featured design offers exactly that with its customizable locket, sentiments of hope and breast cancer awareness ribbons. It's this stylish message of support that makes this piece so uplifting and heartwarming to the soul.

The rose-colored Preciosa Czech crystal beads bring a sparkling and feminine touch to the overall piece. These genuine Czech crystal beads are machine-cut for consistent sparkle and brilliance, and beautifully framed for extra emphasis by silver-plated brass bead caps. The symmetrical stringing pattern also includes silver-plated brass smooth round beads for a well-balanced and visually pleasing result.

The Preciosa Czech crystal butterfly sew-on components offer an eye-catching embellishment to the necklace. These fluttering creatures are set inside an open-backed gleaming silver-plated brass setting, allowing light to pass through the crystal for enhanced sparkle. The symbolic meaning of butterflies is similar across most cultures and is most commonly associated with the soul. Cultural myth and lore honor the butterfly as a symbol of transformation and reminder of how beautiful and fragile life can be, and the importance of being grateful for each moment.

Thanks to the "hope" beads from TierraCast®, this jewelry design spreads the message of hope. These lightweight, antique rhodium-plated pewter beads are double-sided, and loved for their affordability and precious-metal appearance. The hope beads nicely complement the double-sided awareness ribbon beads, also from TierraCast.

This jewelry design can be easily personalized by placing a picture or other embellishment inside the oval locket with awareness ribbon. The imitation rhodium-plated brass locket is decorated with a pink glass rhinestone awareness ribbon.
