Bottles of Hope

At the November meeting of the Bead Society, we’ll be creating Bottles of Hope.

The Bottles of Hope project was started in 1999 by a very special person, Diane Gregoire, a cancer survivor and polymer clay artist. Diane found a way to use her special talents as an artist to cheer up the lives of cancer patients going through the ordeal of chemotherapy. She used clay to decoratively cover small glass medicine bottles and gave them to other patients as a symbol of hope.   At the Bead Society meeting we’ll be covering the bottles with a variety of beading designs.
