Featured Organization for September Autism Speaks

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Today, 1 in 150 individuals is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined.

The "Hope" necklace has been created to raise awareness for Autism and a portion of proceeds for each necklace sold will be donated to Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders.

The "Hope" necklace is a 1 inch sterling silver disc that has been hand stamped with the word Hope. The piece includes a sterling silver puzzle charm and two birthstone crystals of your choice. The charms hang on a 18 inch sterling silver bead/ball chain.

Artist note: The letters on this disc have been hand stamped one at a time. I do not use machines. The letters will not line up perfectly and are not meant to this is part of the charm that makes your piece one of a kind. No two pieces will ever be exactly the same. The disc has been brushed and the letters have been oxidized/antiqued, to make them stand out it will appear to be aged or slightly tarnished but has been given a good polish. All materials used are of the highest quality and each piece has been made w/ loving care. All Designs Copyright of Kristen's Custom Creations 2008.

The Hope necklace is available at Kristen's Custom Creations

I love this and it's almost like you are reading my mind. My nephew was offically diagnosed as an autistic child today and I will be walking in the Autism walk for him in November. This is a perfect gift for her for before the walk. I will be getting one soon.
Also left something for you at my blog under the circus post. You deserve this one :-)
