The pink ribbon is worn to raise awareness about breast cancer. Make a pink-ribbon necklace with a custom-made cameo as a special tribute to the cause. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, this necklace would make a wonderful gift to honor a survivor or as a remembrance of someone lost to the disease. Whether or not you stick with pink, this necklace is a great way to think through your plain loops.
