This is the red Hope Stone I made for the mother of a friend. Hope stones are given to survivors at the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. The stones are plain, with the word "Hope" engraved on them. I add mount them and add fringe. The stone is backed with ultrasuede.
I also made a little storage bag for this stone. It's edged with gold seed beads in the picot stitch.
I'm sending lots of hope and good wishes to my friend's mom as she undergoes treatment.
You can see a couple of the other Hope Stones I made here. I've made two or three more that I did not photograph.
