“ For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8
I’ve been reflecting on God’s grace this week. It amazes me the extreme measures that God went to in order to cleanse us and make us His own. The God and Creator of all came as a man and died for us. All we have to do is accept his gracious gift of salvation. And he rose again! He is alive and continuing to shower us with grace…the grace to live each day.
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
So, I got out my sterling silver and tools and went to work making a GRACE pendant. I even included a cross made from the symbol of unending love – circles. The pendant is sterling silver that I cut from a sheet of sterling, then filed, stamped and hammered. It is surrounded by swirling sterling wire and sparkly Swarovski crystals. The darker crystals are called Mocca AB. They are a deep brown, but because of the AB (aurora borealis) they gleam with many lovely colors! The necklace is more crystals and oxidized sterling chain. This one-of-a-kind piece is 18 inches long. The pendant is 1.25 inches.
