Matthew 28 19 Mission Bracelet

Matthew 28 19 Mission Bracelet

Notes from the artist :

MotsDotsIt was divine inspiration that led me to create this mission bracelet several years ago. I wanted a way to help a friend raise funds for her upcoming mission trip, and using beads from around the world along with the Matt. 28:19 scripture “Go and make disciples of all nations…:” just seemed fitting. Originally called a “Becky bracelet” (after my friend), they were a great success at my church, and helped raise quite a bit of money. Several years later, Becky is back in the US, and now my husband has left his high-tech job to devote himself full-time to his own mission: to love, serve and care for Austin’s homeless youth. Although he has found his calling right here at home, Terry has always had a heart for mission, and has participated in missions in Africa, Cuba, and Mexico. It is with great joy that I am once again making mission bracelets, and it thrills me to be able to use my own gift of creativity to further His work.



An expanded version of the making of this bracelet can be found on the designers blog at

Earthy unakite and howlite necklace with ceramic leaf pendant

Earthy unakite and howlite necklace with ceramic leaf pendant

DesignbySunzeriThe lovely pendant was created and fired by exotic earth studio. The necklace uses 6mm unakite rounds and unakite chips, 6mm agate rounds, 8mm howlite rounds, tortoise czech pressed glass rondells, bleached coco heishes, 6mm amber glass rounds and copper accent beads.

The necklace measures 15 inches long and will rest high on the neckline, which is a nice length for showing off a large pendant such as this. It is finished with a copper toggle clasp.

The gemstones are all genuine. Please let me know if you have any questions.

100% of the sale proceeds will be donated to Etsy for Charity (EFC) Charity of the Month.
