** MORE MEDIUM AVAILABLE ABOUT 2/1/14 **
We're so excited to have this lovely bracelet to represent any invisible illness as well as HopeKeepers. It includes beautiful Bali Sterling, which is sturdy, yet not too bulky. Clear crystals which are genuine Swarovski crystals, freshwater white pearls, sterling silver seamless balls, small sterling silver ribbon and Hope bead, and crystal and pearl charm.
Note: Due to the high price of silver right now, the designer has had to increase her prices which then increases our price. We hope to lower these prices in the future, but are waiting on the market costs.
*The designs may vary slightly depending on the sizing (it would not be noticeable to most people). Also the nature of the Freshwater pearls have small imperfections, but that is the beauty of the bead.
The largest size is $3 more due to the additional beads. Click on the drop down box above to choose the size you want and then click the "add to cart" button.
"Because this bracelet is so beautiful, I'll think of our Lord. I'm excited that this bracelet will be an expression of Hope to those who have an invisible illness like fibromyalgia, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, M.S., various types of chronic pain, RA, and so many others. On those dark days that do come, we can look at this symbol and know that there is always Hope. I believe this bracelet will help to spread awareness and to illustrate that we do have Hope in spite of our pain, disabilities or fears.
This lovely bracelet also symbolizes the hope that is made possible to thousands of patients of chronic illness through the HopeKeepers support groups. It's also a blessing because it's designed by a Christian woman who owns MP Designs." -Nancy Henson, Charlotte Area ME/CFS/FMS Support Group

HOW TO KNOW YOUR SIZE:
Measure your wrist. To do this easily, wrap a flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper/string around your wrist right above the bone. If using the paper/string method, mark it where the end meets then measure it with a ruler. If your wrist falls between quarter inch increments, round up to the nearest quarter inch.
- Small = 5 3/4 inches or less (equals a bracelet length of 6 3/4 or less)
- Average = 6 to 6 3/4 inches (equals a bracelet length of 7 to 7 3/4)
- Large = 7 inches or more (equals a bracelet length of 8 inches or more)
Once you know your wrist size, here are some tips for selecting your bracelet length!
- Add 1/4 - 1/2 inch to your base wrist measurement if you like a snug fitting bracelet or you don't want your bracelet to move up your arm.
- Add 3/4 - 1 inch for a comfortable fit. The bracelets will move freely and charm styles will dangle nicely.
- Add 1 1/4 inch for a looser fit. OK for toggle.
