    Dear Donna, When visiting Nashville this spring I was able to go to the artist fair…after the BIG flood. I bought a wire salvation bracelet. I have been able to share my faith several times with the bracelet. It is an eye catcher and people always want to know about it. I wear it every day. I have shared in doctors offices, beauty salons etc. What a blessing. People have wanted one but I couldn’t find your card. I found it today while cleaning out my “traveling purse”. Glad to see that you are still making it. My bracelet seems to have streched a wee bit. Do I need to just bend the catch? Glad to have found you and will keep your card in my wallet so I can share. Sincerely, Carol Neel Friendswood Texas.

    Dear Donna, I enjoy Carol’s testimony on the wire salvation bracelet and would like to have a copy of the direction or pattern. I am also a christian and I feel that is a wonderful way to win soul for the kingdom of God. Please help.. I also love the pattern of the ear cuff. I have seen that pattern many time but this is the first time I have seen it so easy, even I could do it. Thank you again and again. Vickie the beader from the US Virgin Islands
