The J9 Foundation bracelet is made up of white and light blue beads separated by a coconut bead.
Blue is the internationally recognized awareness colour for MND.
Many years ago beads were used as currency to trade slaves and many years later beads became expressions of beautiful African art and jewellery.
Now beads are saving lives. The J9 Foundation bracelet delivers a message, raises awareness and funds and creates valuable jobs for beaders in rural South Africa.
