"just got a really important package in the mail. i am SO EXCITED! more to come later... "
Well, here's the explanation...
For the past few months, I've been feeling led by the Lord to start learning how to make a new type of jewelry - stamped metal jewelry. I've seen lots of these kind of necklaces online and I love the look of them. I've also noticed that there is not a lot of a Christian voice out there when it comes to this kind of jewelry. Most of the necklaces I've seen out there have children's names on them. And if there is an occasional spiritual one out there, it's pretty generic. I've been inspired to be a new voice out there for the Lord. I want to give more options online to those of us who want to wear a little something "more" around our neck! (I'm sure I will also make charms with children's names on them, too, 'cause you know I love babies!. But, I will also offer a wide variety of "prophetic" jewelry as well)
Well, I've been saving up money for the last month or so to buy the tools/supplies to start up. And yesterday, I got the box in the mail with all the goodies! I could hardly wait for the kiddos to go to bed so I could sit down at my kitchen table and get started!!
When the box came in the mail yesterday afternoon, Clint and I laid hands on it and asked God to bless this new endeavor. We asked Him to anoint my hands to learn the process quickly and easily. We asked Him to bless everyone that will wear one of the pieces that I make. We thanked Him for this new opportunity! It was a special time of dedicating this all to the Lord.
As I was praying about all of this, I felt like the Lord told me to hammer the letters that spell the word "JESUS" onto my first piece, as a way of dedicating this all to Him. It will be my necklace and I will wear it to remind myself that it really is all about HIM!
so here's my first try (after practicing) at a necklace. that name says it all, doesn't it?
(fyi - these are copper discs on sterling silver plated ball chains)
Anyway, I just wanted to share this exciting news with all of you! Y'all have been so supportive and your comments always bless me so much! I will be making these all summer. (God's already given me so many ideas!!) And I will be offering them at my booth at Harvest Fest this fall. I might put some on my etsy shop first. I'm not sure yet... And I am excited about doing custom pieces for people too. The possibilities are endless! So exciting...
Have a blessed Sunday!
