Awareness in September ~ How many of these Important Causes Became Ribbons of Hope!


Did you ever think about how a cause, special day or topic gets assigned?  How do they decide to assign National Grandparents Day, Fall Hat Month (yes this is real), or Black History Month officially?  Well, until January 1995, Congress had the task of seeing that special observances were commemorated.  The Senate or the House would introduce legislation to whatever they thought was worthy of National recognition.  The task became too much for Congress to handle, time wise, so they decided to discontinue this process.  


So who does it now?  The president of course can declare any commemorative event but it is rare.  In some states the legislatures and governor may proclaim days and so may Mayors.   Most of the time these special days, weeks, months come from National Organizations wanting to promote visibility of their cause. But we too as individuals can petition a cause and color selection to go with it.

Awareness Ribbons have become such a huge association for any given cause.  Why not?  Many of us relate very strongly to color.  Color often helps us identify certain things in our life.  Green = Go, Red = Stop, Pink = Breast Cancer Awareness, etc.  Color can be used to create an awareness of a condition, disease, or a cause.  It so important these days to increase awareness any way we can.  Awareness can save lives!


Jules Obsession started making awareness jewelry by request for our customers a few years ago.  They became so popular that we have expanded our line of Awareness Ribbon Charm bracelets to include over 30 ribbon colors.  Since our motto at Jules Obsession is Meaningful and Inspiration Jewelry, this was something we were excited to provide.  What is more Meaningful and Inspirational then Awareness Jewelry? These Beautiful Sterling Silver Plated Ribbon Charm Bracelets make a great conversation piece allowing us to inform others of our special cause.  Take a look at some of the great Expandable Awareness Charm Bangles that has to offer.  And as always they can be customized and personalized with a charm for Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, etc.  You can also select from our large selection of Inspirational Word charms.  We have many popular charms like Strength, Courage, Believe, Hope, Faith, Love, just to name a few.  One of the Best features of Jules Obsession’s Expandable Charm Bangles is that they fit everyone!  We even carry smaller size bangles for children toddler thru 8 years old.  These are a perfect fit for all.  If a bracelet is not your style we are able to put any charm on a chain necklace.  Since all items are Handmade to Order we are able to customize almost any way you like.  We are also happy to ship a Bracelet or Necklace with gift note to anyone on your gift list.  Please contact us for more details!
