A Bowl-dacious Second Chance by Members of The Artists’ Loft
This Bowl-dacious Second Chance ArtBra was created by a group of ladies participating in one of the Artists’ Loft’s Create to Donate workshops. It was made from mostly recycled materials, including old magazines for the bowl-shaped cups, old juice containers for the bodice and straps, water bottle tops and soda can tops for dangling decorations, and old CDs for some additional sparkle! The bra came together as a collective effort from women who suffered from breast cancer themselves or knew someone who had. It was a fun and therapeutic way for the women to express their creativity and do something that would ultimately help others. Their inspiration came from the hope of giving a “second chance” to all those fighting breast cancer.
