Benjamin Down Syndrome Awareness Bracelet and Marissa Down Syndrome Awareness Pendant by Cathy's Creations
When Cathy first started Cathy's Creations, she had no idea how much she would grow to love it. Her favorite part was seeing the face of each person for whom she made her pieces of jewelry when they received them. Even with the impersonal nature of selling on Etsy (and later her own website) and to fans she didn't know on Facebook, the act of making the bracelets never became impersonal for her. Each time someone places an order or contacts Cathy with a custom request, she personally buys the beads, comes up with the design and makes the bracelet. She is so fulfillled by her job!
With time, Cathy realized that she could not only help someone display support for a loved one, but she could donate the proceeds of the bracelet to a foundation that directly supported that cause. Cathy's Creations partners with NDSS to raise awarenes and funds for people with Down syndrome.
