October Give Away From KABbeading

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! This month I am happy to feature KABbeading! She has a variety of Earrings Necklaces Bracelets & Recycled Cork Ornaments. This month we are giving away a pendant with 2 sweet angels. The winner will choose how the pendant is finished: ribbon necklace, have a large lobster clasp added for purse accessory, or just a split ring added and they can add to a charm bracelet or necklace of their own.

Here is Kelly's touching story about Breast Cancer:

I am Kelly Boyd with KABbeading. October being "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" has had special meaning to me since my grandmother beat Breast cancer over 8 years ago. Then, my mother was diagnosed and beat it five years ago. Now, I just had a funeral for a friend who was 72 and found a lump over four years ago. She choose to ignore it, until it was too late. All I can say is this, if you find breast cancer or it is found through routine screening, get it treated as soon as possible. The sooner it is treated, usually treatment is less evasive and you have a greater chance of beating it.
DO self breast exams. Did you know that it is best if you perform them while lying down?
DO discuss with your doctor your chances and when the best time is to start mammograms.
DON'T wait to get treatment if you find something suspicious.
I am passionate about many things. One of course is Breast Cancer Awareness. I also am a full time mom of two boys, ages 1 and 2. I am a full time Funeral Director/Embalmer and Jewelry Designer. I believe that memories are timeless. That is why I felt the need to start working with resin. You can "trap" memories in terms of photographs, locks of hair, dried flowers and turn them in jewelry or even holiday ornaments. I also make beaded necklaces, bracelets and holiday ornaments that are made out of recycled wine corks.
My Etsy shop is www.KABbeading.etsy .com I am also on consignment with Aimmee's Cottage, located in downtown Plainfield, Illinois.
