#GiveAllTheThings: Diabetes Awareness Necklace.

UPDATE: Congrats to Lizzie! You won!

I would like to win this for my roommate and I to share. We both have type 1 diabetes. She was diagnosed 15 years ago and I was diagnosed 4 years ago.

What you can win: A Diabetes Awareness Pendant Necklace, handmade by the mom of a CWD!

Made possible by: Cari (

Why you want this: Cari's necklaces can be found all over the DOC! (I own two different designs and they're both fab.)

Here is Cari's description of this piece: "I mixed resin with a faded white/silver background and poured it into the pendant. Once it was set I placed a gray ribbon in the shape of a 'hope ribbon' and then poured another coat of clear resin on top. Each of these pendants is made by hand, from the mixing of the resin to creating the hope ribbon, so no two are alike."

Materials: resin, antiqued brass (25mm), antiqued brass chain, lobster claw clasp

  1. I would be trying to win this for myself. T1d since 2006. Always trying to as fashionable as possible even if people don't associate diabetes with "cuteness" :) doesn't mean I can't try. I love jewelry So why not wear something adorable and made for a directrixdirectri specific purpose.
