Spoonie Awareness Bracelet by Ixzianna Spoonie Awareness Bracelet by Ixzianna
So many suffer from Chronic and Invisible Illnesses and it's so easy to pass them by.
It may be a family member, a friend, your teacher or your boss.
I believe if we can just raise enough awareness, that these people will not have to suffer in the shadows.
We can help by sharing with a friend, giving them a helping hand or by raising awareness.
This way we can change the world. We can get help for those in need, for those who just need a hand up.

So as part of my own personal Chronic/Invisible illness awareness month, I created a number of jewellery items that are both beautiful and raise awareness including this hand-stamped bracelet.
It highlights the term "Spoonie" in reference to 'The Spoon Theory' by Christine Miserandino (Link here:….

Fibro (Fibromyalgia or FMS) and Hashi's (Hashimoto's Disease) are two such chronic illnesses that I myself suffer from, among other conditions. The Spoon is also in reference to The Spoon Theory and the butterfly is the symbol for Thyroid Disease and change.

I love this! I too, am a 'spoonie' (my lupus is in remission but I still have pyroles disorder, depression and other illnesses) - great work!
All the best with the comp, although raising awareness makes you a 'winner' in my books! :hug:

Thank you so much!
I love finding cute ways to raise awareness. I wear up to 3 personal awareness pieces every time I venture out.
I also find it hard finding jewellery for particular conditions so why not make them custom I say! 
Best of luck with your health! <3
