May Bead of the Month - The Soaring Balloons bead reminds you to let all your cares drift away!
About the Bead: "When I began to design a bead for this project, I wanted to create something that would evoke thoughts of the wonder and joy that we experienced as children. I chose bright balloons to signify happiness, celebration, and the free spirit that dwells inside all of us. May it be a reminder to face whatever challenges we have in life with childlike hope." - Kelly Stanley, Bead Artist
