Beads of Courage Ladybug Stars


Imagine dreaming up a bead design and having it chosen to represent your hospital.  Fifteen year old Beads of Courage patient, Christina Perry was the winner to represent Pittsburgh and I was the lucky beadmaker chosen to interpret her design.

Its a yellow outlined sculptural star, with polka dots, a fat ladybug with green legs and a flower on the back side and will soon be offered on the Beads of Courage website.  I like this design so much.  It is sculptural (always prefer those), it has cheerful colors and a happy design.  Christina's message was that it was to show HOPE.  And if I have ever worked in hopeful, optimistic colors, it's this one here!

There are  other beads designed by patients, parents and medical staff involved through Beads of Courage that will also be for sale. Some are listed already, you can find them HERE.  And they are so reasonably priced at $25.00 each.

See you tomorrow!
