The Christian Story Bracelet
The life of Jesus of Nazareth, from His birth through His resurrection, is evoked through the use of strategically arranged gemstones, natural beads, and precious metal. Each bracelet is handmade and is accompanied by a “story card” explaining the symbolism. $33.00
More than 2000 years ago a bright star rose in the night sky over Bethlehem (star bead). The star was seen by three shepherds (three simple stone beads) and three wise men from the east (three jewel tone beads). It guided them to a humble manger (dark wooden bead) where they found a king (royal blue aurora borealis bead) in the form of a tiny babe, born to Mary and Joseph. The baby’s name was Jesus. Jesus grew to become a carpenter (pale wooden bead) and a fisherman (sterling fish bead). He was a fisher of men and, along with the twelve disciples, he spread the Word of Truth (clear bead) and of His Father in Heaven.
Because of greed (black bead) and envy (green bead), Jesus was crucified – nailed (small black iron bead) to a cross (gemstone cross), where he shed his blood (red bead) and died for the sins of all mankind. Jesus’ lifeless body was laid in a stone tomb (dark pebble) and on the third day He rose victorious from the dead. (Clear aurora borealis bead)
Completing the circle is a floating heart – a symbol of Jesus’ endless love for us.
