This listing is for an half black, half white EDS Awareness bracelet.
Awareness Ribbons, a commonly seen 21st Century phenomenon, were created to increase general public awareness of a particular illness, disability or condition, and to gather support for its sufferers.
It is a simple way to show your support for a specific cause, or perhaps even to indicate that you are suffering from that particular condition yourself.
Every day, new coloured ribbons are added to the growing list of internationally recognised conditions, and have often become synonymous with the condition itself eg the pink ribbon which denotes breast cancer awareness.
This EDS Awareness bracelet is made from faux suede, attached to an infinity symbol, to represent the universality of the condition, and to emphasise that this condition is something that affects the sufferer each minute of each hour of each and every day.
Alternatively, you can choose to replace the infinity symbol with an affirmation ring with the word STRENGTH stamped on it, to represent the fight that sufferers battle through on a daily basis, see listing photo for examples of these different options, then type your choice of either Infinity or strength into the ‘OPTION’ box.
Average sizes are given below for your information, but your bracelet can be made in any size, and will be fully adjustable with an extender chain. Just type the bracelet size required (in inches) in the ‘Length’ box:
Small 6.5 inches
Medium 7 inches
Large 7.5 inches
Small 7.5 inches
Medium 8 inches
Large 8.5 inches
Finally, a charm is added as a finishing touch.
Perhaps you will choose a Zebra charm, which has become a symbol of EDS, because of the black and white stripes, or maybe a ‘Spoon’ charm.
Please choose from the full list of available charms below, and type your selection into the ‘Charm’ box
OM ૐ Symbol
If the text box for a choice is left blank, I will create your bracelet with the default options for that selection
Length: Average Female Size 7 inches
Charm: Silver Hope Ribbon
Option: infinity Symbol
So, now that you’ve decided what your bracelet will look like, all you need to do is keep track of your spoons until it arrives!

I used to be an active primary school teacher, until problems arising from Congenital Hip Dislocation and Bi Lateral Hip Dysplasia. Shortly after the birth of my children, I developed Severe Arthritis in my left hip. After some time and waiting lists (another story!) I had a hip replacement on my left hip. I returned to work and caring for my family, but the hip was never ‘right’ and still caused issues. To cut a very long story short, after multiple surgeries, eventually a severe bone infection was found. This meant removal of the entire prosthesis and iv antibiotic before replacing the hip again. However, Chronic Pain ensued. And ultimately I was offered the option of total permanent removal of the implant leaving me disabled but without pain. Sadly, that didn’t work out too well, and the same level of pain ensued. I was referred to various PMU and underwent many procedures, and have had a spinal cord stimulator implant.
Gemstones have long been my passion, and I’ve always dabbled making gemstone bracelets and pressing them onto my long suffering friends whenever they mentioned some ailment. It was a natural progression for me, when I had to retire from teaching on medical grounds, to begin making my jewellery to sell. This began simply as a way to keep busy, whilst I was in and out of hospital, and I only ever made items to order for people I knew.. but they were paying me, so I could buy more sparkly rocks!
Now I make all sorts of jewellery, but each item is still made with as much love as those first bracelets, and the recipient is the main focus at the centre of everything I create.
So I’m afraid I don’t have ready made items that I can pop into a Jiffy bag when you order, but I will create a specially commissioned piece just for you!
This story started with me as an active young(ish) mum with a career I loved. Now my children are post University, working and living their own lives, my husband is my carer, and I spend a lot of time in bed!
