String Bracelets to Help the Victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings

Kathy Beal, one of our members and a talented jewelry designer,  has created a Swarovski crystal and sterling silver bracelet that honors the 4 people slain during the events following the Marathon.  She will sell the "Be With Boston" Bracelet for $15;  $5 of each bracelet sold which will be donated to The One Fund Boston.  This was established by Mayor Menino and Governor Patrick to help the people most affected by the bombings and shooting.

You can see ~ and place an order for ~ the beautiful bracelet at: http://www.elysianjewels.com/products/Bracelets-and-Anklets/

Kathy will host at least one and maybe more sessions for volunteers to help make the bracelets.  It's a simple stringing exercise;  no jewelry making experience necessary. BUT,  if you need glasses for close-up work,  be sure to bring them.

Kathy's address will be sent to attendees early Sunday morning

      Not yet Lucia. There is still 1 person before you. You may receive more messages that you are in, but I'll send you a personal email when a place really does open up for you.

    Sue B and Rose, You're now attending; please edit your RSVP if you can't make it. I had to move Ellen C and Jill back to the waiting list. Next from the waiting list will be (in order) Jill, Ellen, Lucia.

      Looking forward to this!

    My bad: I thought I locked the RSVP's, but I did not. There is now a wait list. Also, I put some people on the waiting list, and that made it look like they RSVP'd today. The order of the first 5 people on the waiting list should be: Sue B, Rose B, Jill, Ellen C, then Lucia. If a space opens up, I'll move the next 5 people up manually.

      I had noted I was among the group of 6 that were "yes" before the list was evidently reduced to a limit of 4 attendees. I'm not sure, then, why I've ended up as 3rd on the manual waiting list. Anyway,it's such a lovely idea, and if I can't help make the bracelets, I'll surely wish to buy one.

      Only Kathy will be selling the bracelets (not the "stringers". I'd suggest you go to her website and order one (or more there). shipping is scheduled to begin 5/1. That link is http://www.elysianjew­...

      April 25, 2013

  • Sue B.

    Please let us know if another date is set.
    Maybe take the waiting list people first before opening up if possible.

    Hi Ivana, Jill, Denise and Sue, I thought I locked the RSVP's, but aparently not. I can't change your status to waiting list (only to not attending), so I will leave you on in the order you signed up, but you are on the waiting list. Only the first 4 people on this list will be attending this event.

    April 24, 2013

  • Sue B.

    Definately hope I can make this once the date is determined.
