By Faith Jewelry ~ With Heartfelt Gratitude ~

Exodus 31:3-4

I have so much to be grateful for! YOU, my clients and supporters of my handcrafted creations, are a blessing to this endeavor called By Faith Jewelry! Thank you for reaching out to me and purchasing gifts for your loved ones (and yourself!). YOU made this one of the most amazing years that By Faith Jewelry has ever had.

I enjoy making jewelry so much. It gives me the opportunity to express my creative side in a very special way, with tiny gemstones, pearls, wires and leathers. Every piece is designed with an eye toward simple beauty, artistic whimsy or pure elegance. And although I have said it many times, I think I should again say that God is the ultimate creator and He makes all these beautiful stones and pearls and I just get to play with them! Several years ago I was given a verse during a quiet time at a conference. It was the verse from Exodus 31 above. This verse has sustained me through the busy times and through the quiet times. I am learning to enjoy all the different seasons, busy and quiet.

With the unanticipated course that 2020 has taken, I am also learning to enjoy unexpected delightful surprises! The Sip & Shop event at Stony Point Fashion Park was an unexpected surprise at the end of a cancelled year. A very unexpected call from a client who wanted to give my jewelry as gifts was so delightful! I have also been privileged to discover new clients and kindred spirits who appreciate handcrafted jewelry! And those returning clients who have supported me for the past 11 years are always dear to my heart. Thank you all for wearing my little gemstone creations of love! The unexpected gift of time gave me the opportunity to explore something fancifully new with the magical bubble blowing wands that I have had so much fun making! And one more surprise: I pray before every sale and show that I would be allowed to share the love of Jesus with everyone I meet and unexpectedly, this year, I think this sharing happened more times that I would have thought possible! Praise God!

See you on Instagram and Facebook next year ~ please share & like & tag #byfaithjewelry ~ Merry Christmas with love from By Faith Jewelry and may God bless you and yours!

Earrings, Necklaces, Shows & Festivals

By Faith Jewelry ~ Busy at the workbench

I’ve been busy at my workbench the past couple of weeks. Of course you’ve seen my new Magical Bubble Wands. But don’t think that I have strayed far from my roots! Jewelry will always be my main thing. Here’s a few new creations:

Pastel gemstones accent these perfect sterling silver open circle earrings $35
Herkimer diamond slice pendant topped with multi colored micro-faceted tiny gemstone rounds float on a sterling silver 18 inch chain. $75
On the rocks crystal ice earrings. Layered with violet and green gemstones. Sparkling sterling silver earwires. Over 3 inches of cool glamor $35 (And I have a matching necklace…just sayin’!)

And…I hope to have some news very soon about a ‘live and in person’ Holiday Market! Praying it will happen. I will keep you posted. 🦋

By Faith Jewelry September 2020 ~ Walking by faith ~

As the season for craft shows and holiday shopping approaches, I find myself looking at my By Faith Jewelry business and thinking that I took all those ‘live, in person’ shows for granted over the past few years. I am very selective about the venues that I choose to attend and I don’t work on Sundays, holding that day for the Lord. I really miss seeing you all and hearing your reactions to my creations! As a result, I have all this beautiful jewelry stored in protective boxes waiting to see the light of day and find a home! There just might be a pair of earrings, a bracelet or necklace that is calling your name! So, come on, reach out…I am here for you!

All that being said, I have decided to continue to trust that my God will guide me and I will continue to walk by faith. Several loyal customers have contacted me and have shown interest in shopping for this coming season. I am so happy to hear from you and will be happy to work out a way to show you the special pieces you want to give as gifts or add to your collection.

In addition, I have found that it is easy for me to post on Instagram, it’s quick and simple for me. And you can always reach me there or on Facebook.

Lastly, I have been playing around and have added a few fun new additions!!
