Written by Project Inspired | April 22, 2014
Wearing jewelry is a great way for you to express your personality and tastes in addition to your awesome outfits. And while it’s fun to have a random assortment of necklaces, bracelets and earrings to choose from, many Christian ladies like to use these accessories to show off their love for Christ. And why not, when there are so many gorgeous Christian jewelry designs available?!
A quick search of handmade picks on Etsy shows tons of beautiful options for displaying your faith, and we sorted through them to select five of our favorite handmade Christian necklaces.
Check out our picks below!
Part of a Bible verse we love is printed plainly on this vintage-style pendant necklace. The verse is set in a 1-inch-round decorative brass pendant and covered with a clear glass face. A 24-inch cable chain closes with a lobster clasp, and you get a choice of the flower color. (Sweetly Spoken Jewelry, $30)
There’s nothing better than your favorite Bible verse…but what about finding that verse represented by a piece of jewelry? Jeremiah 29.11 is one of our favorites, so we’re thrilled to uncover this beautifully simple, powerful necklace. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (This Words For You, $28)
We love what the artist said about this piece, so we’ll let her speak for herself: “When I found this crown of thorns charm, I was moved—I’m still moved every time I see it,” she says. “So simple, yet powerful. I remember a time when I could not wear a cross because of the shame I carried that my Savior had to endure such a death that I may live. Shame turned into gratitude for an unfathomable love, and now I also see the cross as Jesus’ strength. In that moment, Jesus carried all the sins of the world; what powerful strength He has. He still carries our sins and the sins against us, so that we may live in freedom. That’s what this piece means to me. I didn’t add any charms or beads. I felt the raw beauty of the crown of thorns spoke for itself. The charm measures approximately 3/4 inch and is attached to a 17-inch chain.” (Busy Beez and Chickadeez, $17.50)
Want a little personalized flair to your jewelry? This initial necklace is made with an engraved sterling silver disc, a sterling silver chain and an antique silver Ichthys charm. The engraved capital letter is blackened (oxidized) on a tiny disc that’s 9 mm in diameter. The Ichthys measures 20 mm. The necklace can be chosen from available lengths of 16, 18 or 20 inches. (Hand Stamped by Joanna, $21.50)
We love this classy polymer clay embedded cross pendant, held up with an aluminum jump ring. Simple, gorgeous and will go with any outfit you wear! (Modern Inspired Design, $7)
