the most wonderful name

I put a new necklace up in the shop the other day. I have been having so much fun experimenting with new techniques on this special kind of jewelry. This copper disc, which bears the most beautiful name in the world (Jesus), was hand cut, sanded, hammered and domed to give it a completely different look than the other pre-cut discs I've used before. It's so neat how you can achieve so many styles by shaping and manipulating the copper.

As I was making this one, I was reminded of the old song called "Jesus". (The lyrics are below).

Jesus really is the most beautiful, the most powerful, the most wonderful name in all the world. One mention of that name and the demons flee!! How often I take great joy and comfort in that fact!

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
There's just something about that name
Master, Savior, Jesus
Like the fragrance after the rain.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Let all heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there's something about that name.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
