Epilepsy Awareness Inspires a New Product Line

I have a new line of Awareness bracelets in my shop, the Mandiye. This design was a gift to a good friend of mine, Mandiye. We both work with a company that sponsors us to both speak to groups to help end the stigma associated with epilepsy.  Each year we attend a summit and that is where we met.

I will share Mandiye's complete story in another blog post.
The Mandiye Awareness bracelet features Swarovski Crystal bicones in Provence Lavender and Purple Velvet. It will be available in a silver plated and Sterling silver version.

SDC19439 This very special bracelet has a special purpose. There is no Epilepsy Foundation in Las Vegas, in fact, there is not one in Nevada. We currently fall under the umbrella of the Northern California Epilepsy Foundation. The profit (not a percentage or a portion, the entire profit) from the sale of this bracelet will be donated to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California, to be used for services in Nevada.

The Mandiye will also be available in other colors to indicate support for other causes. Regardless of the color all profits from all Mandiyes will be for Epilepsy.

Epilepsy affects over 3 million Americans of all ages – more than multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and Parkinson’s disease combined. Almost 500 new cases of epilepsy are diagnosed every day in the United States.
