White awareness ribbon keyring/bag charm with a rhinestone butterfly charm and sparkly shamballa bead.

The wite ribbon raises awareness for a number of conditions including:
Emphysema, lung cancers, osteoporosis, “Invisible” illnesses and post-partum depression (There may be other conditions symbolised by the white ribbon, however these are the most common).
This pretty keyring/bag charm is made using a variey of beads including a 12mm focal “shamballa” style bead, 6x8mm and 4x6mm crystal faceted beads. The keyring loop is a 20mm silver tone split ring and the pretty charm is a 29x36mm enamel rhinestone butterfly.
The total length of the keyring is 8.5cm.

This sparkly keyring would make a lovely general gift for any woman or girl and also perfect as an “awareness” gift for any chronic illness sufferers/supporters. It could also be used for party/wedding favours and is available in a variety of colours (please see separate listings).
The butterfly is sometimes used to symbolise remembrance and so therefore this keyring would also be suitable as a remembrance keepsake/gift.

The medical condition of your choice (from the list symbolised by this colour) can be added to the keyring for an additional 50 pence if desired.
Please add which condition you would like in the ‘Order Notes to Seller’ box, or leave blank if you would like to keep the keyring as per the original image.

I am a qualified radiographer but unfortunately had to give up my much loved job in September 2011 when my lung problems really kicked off (after suffering multiple pulmonary emboli), resulting in frequent and lengthy hospital admissions.

One Christmas I was stuck in hospital, in a sideroom on my own, for 6 weeks so I started making earrings to pass the long lonely days. I then taught myself to make bracelets and necklaces and gradually moved on to bag charms and other gifts. These were very popular with staff, visitors and patients.

I carried on with my new hobby once at home as I was still unable to do much due to my severe lung disease leaving me very short of breath on exertion. Over the last 5 years my mobility has gradually declined and I am currently bed/wheelchair bound due to instability in my joints, as a result of Ehlers-danlos Syndrome, and my lungs only functioning at 25%. I’m on oxygen 24/7 and I suffer from chronic pain and fatigue.

Despite all this my brain is still active and therefore I get bored easily and so doing my jewellery helps to pass the time! I have many complex health conditions however I still try to do the best I can, although pushing myself to get out of the house one day results in a few days rest just to recover!
