The Faith Collection

Antique lace, oceans blue, seeds of possibilities. The Faith Collection features tiny hand cut imagery to inspire you. There is potential for the heart within each of us as we grow together. We live by faith, not by sight! 
 
 

 

The collection is inspired by the notion of seeds within each of us. Three themes evolved during the development: 

  • Heart Within: The heart within is a mysterious thing. Will we choose to let it lead us? As a Christian, I believe our hearts can lead us astray if we let emotions rule our lives. Instead, we choose to follow God. One of my favorite Bible verses is Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." 
  • PotentialPotential is where our dreams and actions meet. Will we choose to imagine and wish? Or will we do what we're being called to? God's Word says "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." Psalms 139:13-16  God has incredible plans for each and every one of us. And he also grants us the power to decide whether to follow his lead or our own. 
  • Together: Gathering together in community strengthens us. We weren't meant to be alone and well-chosen friends can encourage us to reach our true potential. Being a metalsmith, Proverbs 27:17 is one of my favorites: "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Are you surrounding yourself with people who can help you rise?

  

Each piece in this collection was made by hand by me in Lebanon, Ohio. The rare Peruvian opals were cut from old stock mined in the Andes mountains. I love the way each one has its own story to tell, much like us. From there, small floral elements were painstakingly sawn and filed into sterling silver. These tiny pieces were embellished, formed, and layered using hand tools and torches to become the jewelry you see here.
