Amy Severino of Amybeads, who has been beading for over 17 years, donated this beautiful blue bracelet to the 7000 Bracelets of Hope.

A fun, fantastic, clever and inspiring idea to raise awareness to the Global Genes Project!!! I love this blue chain; the color is rich, and the chain is very light-weight.”

All of the items that Amy sells are handmade with quality beads and findings (such as the clasps and stringing materials). Since she walked in to a whole store devoted to beads on her 25th birthday, beadwork has been Amy’s passion. She walked in and quickly fell in love. After leaving, she made a necklace only to return back to the store twice later that day.

Thank you, Amy!
