JEWELRY DESIGNS AND THE STORY BEHIND
  1. HOPE
    HOPE
    Our first design is certainly meaningful and arose when (FBT) was not even a service project. A desire to let two close friends know, “I am here with you.” No words, no actions could help their situations. Yet my prayer was to bring a smile, to remind them someone cared, and that they were not walking alone. “Hope” was born in a beautiful bracelet with yellow colored stones (amber) and pearls centered on the message, “To believe and be strong in difficult moments.”
  2. HOPE (EUROPEAN)
    HOPE (EUROPEAN)
    Once again the first design of our new European-style collection and featured in FBT"S Hope Creates program. Why hope? Maybe it’s because it’s the only feeling that we decide to keep when confronted with unexpected situations. With hope in your path, it can light up any moment and inspire others to continue believing. Our desire is that you decide today to keep the feeling of hope as a light on your path.
  3. COLORS OF MY HEART
    COLORS OF MY HEART
    This design is created with semiprecious stones amethyst, agate, rose quartz, amazonite, pearls and crystals. It is inspired by words that often describe a warrior: heart, fear, courage, love, loneliness, hope and faith. The strongest person is not the one who never fails, but the one who gets up, again and again. A representation of the beautiful love and support between a mother and daughter. The kind of love that sustains a life, encourages and gives hope. Let this design be a reminder of love during your journey.
  4. NEW DAY
    NEW DAY
    “If you need to remember today, I want you to know there is hope in a new day…If tomorrow I need you to hold my hope, do not let me forget I can dream in a new day…” Inspired by a friend, New Day is a design that was created to represent the beauty and hope each new day brings. As my dear friend was going through her cancer treatments, I used to remind her, “You can do it. Tomorrow will be another day.” While today can be overwhelming, tomorrow holds new hope, new possibilities and every yesterday is another victory won. Beautiful amethyst, soft topaz crystals, and rose and cream pearls complete this design.
  5. FAITH
    FAITH
    Precious, fresh white pearls, gray Picasso stones, and gold Swarovski crystals convey the message of faith. Faith is the complete trust or confidence in someone or something. It is a very precious gift to keep faith during the most difficult times. The way a pearl is created inside a shell is fascinating, but they must be polished and cut before their real beauty is discovered. We want to show a beautiful and simple way to see difficult moments from another perspective. We want to find the beauty beyond and apart from the pain. Faith and hope can take us to places we never thought possible. Everyone at FBT witnesses this through the journeys of so many warriors who decided to walk with the precious gift of faith and try to uncover the beauty in each and every moment.
  6. SERENITY
    SERENITY
    This beautiful design influenced by two friends and their unexpected cancer diagnoses. They experienced a call to be brave in a moment when fear seems to overcome everything, and yet their walk with faith took them both through a sweet and admirable serenity through the challenges of surgeries and treatment. You could see peace in their eyes and there was always faith in their words. They both chose to allow the idea of a bigger purpose fill their hearts and souls. A testimony that inner light could never be clouded over with darkness.
  1. BEAUTIFUL
    BEAUTIFUL
    One of the most beautiful moments in an average day is when we see the majesty of a brilliant rainbow manifest after a mighty storm. This design was inspired by the rainbow, its symbolism, the beautiful promise of hope it represents and the vibrant living colors we see. This design displays elegant color in light from a soft-golden crystal combined with the graceful garnet tear drop. Smoky and sleek rose crystals, delicate pearls, and clear quartz finish off the piece. We celebrate the brave unknown survivor, the patient, and those heroes that face the battle of life every day.
  2. COURAGE (EUROPEAN)
    COURAGE (EUROPEAN)
    This word describes the thousands of patients Feel Beautiful Today serves every day. Only courage can give you the strength to walk through the cancer journey and find purpose and peace. A patient once shared with me that when they’re confronted with any difficult situation, they can only take courage and go on. Giving up is not an option. Walking with courage and keeping their heart near those they love is the only way. As a beautiful testimonial, we pray and hope you choose courage and recognize the warrior you have inside.
  3. COURAGE
    COURAGE
    The special light in quartz reminds me of the power of faith in life. This bracelet comprised of pearls and round smoky quartz was born after listening to many stories of women affected by cancer. These brave women battle with so much. “Courage” was created in celebration of their lives and how much we can learn from each of them. There are always two ways to look at things in life and I want to rejoice; to honor those souls…the hearts that look at every day as an opportunity to learn and be happy for today.

  4. XOXO ( HUGS & KISSES)
    XOXO ( HUGS & KISSES)
    We use soft pink quartz and crystals, mixed with pearls. Creating this design I had in my mind two young girls that I had a chance to share some time with a few years ago. They were both courageously battling cancer. I learned the real significance of not giving up, no matter what, and of course, to always smile. They always had time to send “hugs and kisses” in their letters to friends and family. It was this tenderhearted reminder of the importance of love and relationships that inspired, “Hugs and Kisses.”
