Catching Up with Awareness Ribbons

We've been busy here lately.

After the Key mold I decided to do make an awareness ribbon mold as we've had requests. Because cancer cuts deeply through most American families including mine, it was time to make the mold. After a few false starts the ideas for the designs in the mold began to come together.

Since it was finished I’ve been making ribbon charms in memory of those that have already gone home on angel’s wings and as a reminder to pray for those that are here, fighting daily. The ribbon encircles their birthstones because their lives matter to those that they love and those that love them. The charm to the right is a red ribbon for lymphoma, a blood born cancer. The bead in the ribbon is a Peridot, an August birthstone. (Since writing this, I saw somewhere that the lymphoma ribbon is greenish, does anyone know which?)

Four of the designs would be cameo style, an oval cabochon with a ribbon on the front. Five would be just ribbons. Enter the new mold: PJ043 Awareness Ribbons.

With this mold, you can make awareness ribbons to remember ,or be reminded to pray for, a loved one struggling with cancer, for one deployed and for other life struggles. There are 9 openings in a variety of sizes.

Four Ribbon Cabochons that will fit standard sized bezels,

  • 1 1/8 x 1 ½ inches (30x40mm),
  • 7/8” x 1 3/16” (22x30mm);
  • 13/16” x 15/16” (18x25mm);
  • 1/2” x 7/16” x 7/16” (13x18mm).

Five Awareness Ribbons in a variety of sizes – largest to smallest;
1 1/4” - 1” - 7/8” - 5/8” & 1/2”

Free instructions are included to make a Ribbon Cameo and a Ribbon Charm.

The deepest part of this 5/8” thick mold is the large and next to largest ribbon cameos, about 7/16” deep. The rest of the cameos and ribbons are thinner. Made of strong urethane rubber that can be flexed for easy release.

The mold is available now at our website Best Flexible Molds.

Thanks for stopping by.
