Gospel Bracelet - highlights the 6 points of the Gospel message
Black - Our sin separates us from God, leads to death and hell
Purple - God is a righteous judge and He must judge our sin
Red - God loves us and sent His Son to die and shed His blood so we could be made right with God
White - In order to receive this love and forgiveness we must repent and turn from our sins
Blue - We must put our faith, all our life's hope and trust, in God and in what Jesus did for us on the cross
Gold - No matter what prayer we pray or action we take, it is God who grants salvation and eternal life
This is the new design for the GO! bracelets, featuring the right-angle weave technique. This is an experiment in progress, since it requires an exact planning of each bead placement and several rows stitched together.
This is the first set where I am actually factoring in the value of my time making these pieces - hence the higher price. Up until now, I have only been asking for slightly more than the cost of materials. From now on, I will be offering full-priced jewelry AND clearance items, so there is something for everyone. I will NOT raise the price on previously discounted items- you will always be able to buy these at the original low prices.
Here is the first offering in my higher range.....This took quite a bit of time to do
I am on Unit 2 of my Sheffield School Course! I just finished my 1st completed jewelry project, which is the Roses For Elizabeth bracelet! I will let you know what they think of it when it's graded.......
Right now I am making 2 GO! France bracelets for the Pastor of our church and his wife, for when they go to Paris next year and do missions as a family. For the first time I am engraving in cursive on the medallions, which looks a lot nicer!
While I was attempting to follow Tophatter auctions and cut beading wire, I snipped the end of my left middle finger with the scissors.....looked worse than it was.
And while RSVPing for the neighborhood block party on Oct. 6, the lady who runs it told me I am allowed to set up tables and sell my jewelry!!!! For anyone in the area of Arlington, TX it is on the block of 5700 Shady Hill Lane, from 2-10pm. I am so excited!!!!
Now to work a little more on the bracelets before leaving for Bible study......
This is something I came up with just for the crowd at Tophatter.com - a simple crystal and goldtone chain bracelet. I am also experimenting with my scanner and different backgrounds to make the pics more appealing. It seems that if I just lay a piece of light color cardstock over the jewelry instead of the flat top of the machine it looks slightly better......I am in the market for an affordable priced Canon Powershot.
This is a Christian missions bracelet for the Democratic Republic of Congo....I ran out of my usual silver medallions and haven't gotten my new order in yet, so I substituted another style of bezel instead. This particualr bracelet is longer than normal......
