JOY Necklace

Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

I sure enjoyed making this pendant! I was trying something new and it worked. It’s funny how jewelry techniques ideas keep swirling around in my mind until I finally do something with them. I’ve been enjoying wirework for quite awhile now, but I wanted to incorporate sterling sheet metal too. So I cut out the round middle piece, filed, hammered and stamped it. But to add the wire, I needed to punch holes all around the outside of the disc. I wasn’t sure how it would all work out, but I love the result.

JOY seemed to be the perfect word to stamp on it. When I focus on the love of God and His salvation I am filled with joy and He strengthens me.  I pray that you are filled with His joy this day.

Necklace includes handmade, one-of-a-kind “JOY” pendant, Carib Blue Opal Swarovski Crystals, Sterling beads and black leather. Pendant is 1.25 inches. Necklace is 18.5 inches long. One-of-a-kind Gentle Spirit Creations necklace complete with designer tag.
