Crystal Allure is widely known for its collection of handmade beaded bracelets and fine handcrafted designer awareness jewelry in support of cystic fibrosis and organ transplant awareness. Their Transplant Awareness Ribbon Bracelet (B105) has been sold worldwide and is the centerpiece of their awareness jewelry collection.
Since 2003, designer, Stephanie, has been creating beaded awareness bracelets in support of cystic fibrosis and lung transplant awareness. Raising awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and Organ Transplant, specifically lung transplant, has always been important to her. Stephanie's oldest brother was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth and battled the disease until he was 32-years old. At the time of his death, he was an eligible candidate on the waiting list for a double lung transplant. Each year thousands of individuals die because of the shortage of organs.
The Crystal Allure Awareness Jewelry Collection for Cystic Fibrosis and Organ Transplant, was designed in memory of her brother and because nothing like this existed, until now. Stephanie wanted to be able to offer these unique jewelry designs to support those who are dealing with these issues and their families. The Awareness Jewelry Collection offers unique bracelet designs that are handmade from the heart and offer stories of heartbreak, strength, courage and hope.
The Transplant Awareness Ribbon Bracelet (B105) was designed with beautiful emerald Swarovski Crystals, pearls and accented by sterling silver awareness ribbon blocks. It is finished with a butterfly charm because it has been said when someone receives a set of transplanted lungs, the new lungs look like a butterfly opening its' wings, when they take their first breath of new life.

Lauren's Thoughts: I wanted to say that when I first found Crystal Allure, I loved the idea right away. This is some cute jewelry, but it's great that it means something...especially to the one who made it. My mom actually had a kidney transplant about three years ago so the message immediately resonated with me. I hope you will take the time to check out Crystal Allure and enter the giveaway. Whether you win or not, think about supporting and buy something from the site. It would be a wonderful memento if you knew someone who had a transplant as well.
