2021 Limited Edition Pride Bracelet

2021 Limited Edition Pride Bracelet

 

Thank you so much for your support with the 2021 Trevor Project fundraiser. As with last year, 25% of the gross sales was donated to the Trevor Project . This organization is aimed at ending teen LGBTQ+ suicide with a hotline operated by trained counselors, as well as outreach materials, ongoing research, and more! Together we raised $188.50 for the charity. Near the end of the month, the board of directors of The Trevor Project announced that they would triple donations, so the organization received $562.50!

The 2021 version of the Pride Bracelet was made up of my pigmented concrete stones mounted on wood settings. The stones were highlighted with adjacent colors on the rainbow. The chain was stainless steel with a steel heart at the end. Leftover stock, as well as other color options, will be available in the Etsy shop.

 

Etsy!!

 I have started adding my work to the popular handcrafted site  Etsy, beginning with the Concrete & Steel earrings. Rather than making specific pairs for the site, I thought it would be more fun for you to be able to choose your own colors. So, for each listing, you can select one of 24 color palettes for your earring stones.

I will continue to add my work to the site. You can find my Etsy listings here.

Concrete Rainbow Pride Bracelets

Thank you so much for the support you showed during the  rainbow pride bracelet fundraiser . The fundraiser is over now, but it will return next June in some form. Together we raised $243.75 for The Trevor Project. Since all donations were being matched by both Warner Media and AT&T for the month, this means that over $730 went to this worthy cause.

Work has already begun on the 2021 Pride Month fundraiser.  Meanwhile, here are some of the reviews for the 2020 bracelet:

Really beautiful and wonderful quality. This is a great piece, and it is adjustable! I have really small wrists, and hesitate when buying bracelets because they’re always too big. Because it’s adjustable, I can make it fit. And a portion of the sale goes to a great cause! Color me happy!

Love my Pride bracelet! I have bought many items from Funky Designs, and the artist’s work is impeccable! Very good quality and beautiful!!

I’ve admired this business from afar for awhile now, and finally took the plunge.. The product was gorgeous, and the customer service impeccable. I look forward to seeing what he comes up with next.

This bracelet is lovely. I originally wanted the gold, but it sold out. I bought the silver and I’m in love. The colors are vibrant and will match anything. Eric makes such unique pieces and I love seeing what he comes up with.

Again, thank you for your interest. This was a labor of love and a tribute to the many friends and students that have trusted me during an emotionally challenging time. I love you all and I am proud to call you my friends.
