This type 1 diabetes awareness necklace is made from a real vial. The top is soldered shut and it hangs on a stainless steel chain with a clasp. Moving freely inside is a type 1 awareness ribbon printed on a paper roll, glitter in the awareness ribbon colors, and a red crystal bead. The red bead represents a drop of blood, from the many pokes a type one must endure on a daily basis. Measures about 2.25 inches.
T1D is very near and dear to us. A portion of the profits from this piece will be donated to a charity of our choice, to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.
