Faye Daniel Designs (FDD) is delighted to announce that we are partnering with the MedStar Maryland Melanoma Center to offer a one-of-a-kind Swarovski crystal bracelet in the strikingly elegant shade of silver night. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the MedStar Maryland Melanoma Center. The design, which may be set in your choice of antique copper, gold, silver or antique silver metal plated chain, is a collaboration between FDD founder and lead designer Randie McConnell and Felice Repas, a close friend of Randie and a melanoma survivor.
According to the American Cancer Society, cancer of the skin is by far the most common of all cancers. While melanoma accounts for less than 5% of skin cancer cases, it is the cause of a majority of skin cancer deaths. The American Cancer Society estimates that, in 2013, 76,690 new melanomas will be diagnosed in the United States and approximately 9,480 people in the United States are expected to die of melanoma.
The risk of melanoma increases with age, but it is not uncommon among people younger than 30. In fact, melanoma is one of the most common cancers in young adults (particularly young women.) Click here to learn about the risk factors for melanoma.
These limited edition Swarovski crystal bracelets are handmade at the FDD studio in Bel Air, Maryland. They will make beautiful holiday gifts that also will raise awareness about early detection and prevention as well as support research to cure the silent killer that is melanoma.
