Aliens and a Flying Saucer

These are more Beads of Courage beads. I just love making the aliens, they can look whatever way they turn out. It’s a great way to use up rod ends too.

BOC Beads

Since I make beads, I can make some for a wonderful organization called “Beads of Courage”. This program is a resilience-based intervention designed to support and strengthen the protective resources in children coping with serious illness. Through the program children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path. The program helps to decrease illness-related distress, increase the use of positive coping strategies, helps children find meaning in illness, and restore sense of self in children coping with serious illness. The program also provides something tangible the child can use to tell about their experience during cancer treatment and after.

Recently, there was a call for beads more suited for boys. Here are a few that I made using images my friend sent to me.
