Scale Maille Earrings to Benefit Susan G. Komen
*About The Piece*
Just like the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure, these earrings are BOLD and stand out with their scales. Small mobius rings top them off with their never ending circle of hope. They hang 1 1/2" from niobium fish hook ear wires.
*What I'm Doing*
Last year, I took on an incredible challenge. I walked 60 miles over the course of 3 days and raised over $3,000 for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure (aka: the breast cancer walk). All money raised by this event goes towards breast cancer research and breast health programs.
*The Pink Warrior Collection Inspiration*
The 3 Day uses the song Pink Warrior by Candy Coburn as their theme song. My warrior woman roots inspired me to use my love of the defensive art of chain maille (worn by warriors of the past) in the fight against breast cancer.
*A Very Generous Donation*
The insanely talented Rebeca Mojica of Blue Buddha Boutique has very generously donated thousands of pink jump rings so that **ALL Proceeds** from the purchase of the Pink Warrior Collection goes directly to my fundraising for the 3 Day! Find out more about Rebeca & Blue Buddha in the sponsorship announcement on my blog:
*How You Can Help*
I may not be walking this year, but I'm still committed to a world without breast cancer and will continue to make this collection. When you wear this piece, help spread the word. Yes, the 3 Day is about fundraising, but it's also about awareness.

A friend of mine had a customer return a chain maille shirt for repair saying it wasn't bulletproof (yes, they shot it with a gun - luckily not when being worn!).
My daughter loved this but her hand was way too small for the dimensions given. She fixed the size for us and my 16 year old warrior is ready to go.

My bracelet is stunning. I am SO thrilled. It looks substantial, is beautifully made and feather light. Delivery was super quick and I loved the tiny treat!!
