Using Jewelry to Fight Breast Cancer

OurTown, Texas -- Pink ribbons do much to raise awareness of
breast cancer, but now you can join the fight with a little more style
and glamour. Local jewelry designers, Karen & Crystal LastName of Two
Belles & a Bead, have created a line of handcrafted jewelry to support
the fight against breast cancer.

The line, titled "The Jane's Hope Collection" was recently designed
and named in honor of a beloved family member who lost her fight
against breast cancer in April of this year. The jewelry is
handcrafted from sterling and fine silver, 14kt gold fill,
semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals, and glass beads and
features a small collection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces,
pendants and accessories. For the entire month of October, 100% of the
proceeds from sales in The Jane's Hope Collection will go to The Rose,
a charity based in Houston, TX.

Karen & Crystal, who have been jewelry designers in OurTown for
three years, say they were inspired by the spirit of women fighting
breast cancer and the hope they all hold. "We have tried to reflect
their beauty and strength in the designs we have created by using
materials that are both beautiful and lasting," Crystal says. "The
jewelry has extra meaning when you consider the importance of the
issue it supports. It's basically women helping women. Our goal is to
spread the message of awareness and represent the spirit of hope." You
can find the pieces on their retail website,, where Karen & Crystal have sold across
the US and also internationally.

Two Belles & a Bead is a mother and daughter team of jewelry designers
whose goal is to offer high quality jewelry at affordable prices. They
carry a wide variety of jewelry pieces and specialize in semi-precious
gemstones, Swarovski crystals, sterling and fine silvers, 14kt gold
filled, copper, and chain maille jewelry.
