BRI Bead

"A Glimmer of HOPE"


Was created by Sweet Art things. The story of the Butterfly is ever changing and HOPE is what we hold onto. Ann Marie Martinez is a childhood friend of Babette, Mother of Brianna and when Babette went to her friend and asked if she could make these for "No Parent left behind" Ann Marie was thrilled. Little did they know they would be so popular and now The BRI Project offers them for sale. Sweet Art things will donate 20% of each BRI Bead to

The BRI Project.

The BRI Necklace
This necklace is an approximate  3/4” diameter circle and an approximate 27” long, slip over your head type chain. Although it can be opened and closed...  All made of copper.   Hand stamped, soldered, patinated and polished to completion with love. As this piece is worn it will patina even more.  It is easily cleaned with a silver cloth.   
This beautiful piece is hand-crafted by Chrissy at May-n-Ais

The Story behind the creation: 

The Butterfly represents Brianna; a little background on that. Brianna’s Services were held outside in a beautiful setting; there were big beautiful billowing trees in the back drop. Kayla stood to speak for her Baby Sister and at that moment a big Yellow Butterfly fluttered above Kayla as she spoke; the Butterfly came back when Chris Brianna's Dad spoke. Since Brianna’s death the Butterfly has been a BIG part of the people in Brianna's life.
