Click on any of the images to bid over at the ebay store. All proceeds go to Maverick’s parents and to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, the world renowned heart care program set up by Dr. David Ross and Dr. Ivan Rebeyka, and to other organizations that will directly help families struggling with CHD. These organizations have and individuals have played a crucial role in keeping little Maverick alive and helping the family along. The donors of the items are all shipping them from out of pocket, so bid your little hearts out!

This is a beautiful, soft stack of bangle bracelets that would be perfect for a beach wedding, or for a very romantic, feminine look. Soft shell pinks are represented in a variety of stones and pearls. There is a sweet mother of pearl dove that is framed by soft peach fresh water pearls. wire wrapped pink jasper, vintage glass beads and focals, vintage faux pearls, an artisan clay shell, and stones are included to make this lovely set of six bangles. Perfect for those who like the idea of wearing multiple bangles; but prefer a more feminine, romantic, soft look.
