"In the darkness we were waiting, without hope, without light...
Til from heaven You came running, there was mercy in your eyes...
To fulfil the law & prophets, to a virgin came the word...
From a throne of endless glory, to a cradle in the dirt." ~ King of Kings (song)
When designing this, I had in mind a baby cradle. The little cradle here is suspended with layered chains... which speaks of a baby cradle, held and lifted up from the dirt. It also speaks of a baby "cradled" i.e. held gently & securely.
Making and wearing this necklace has two personal reminders for me, as I hope it might be for you. First, it represents that "cradle in the dirt" which held the One from glory who came down to us. Second, that I am that baby in the cradle, held up by loving arms from the dirt.
We may well be in a season of darkness. Or maybe just have those brief moments of struggle. Yet, let us be thankful and reminded of the love that surrounds us... love that cradles us... love that uplifts and keep our heads held high--friends, family, God.
One of the joys of doing what I do is creating pieces that would mean something to you. Thank you for being part of our story. ❤️

1/20 14K Gold-Filled
Known as the "next best thing to solid gold", 1/20 14K gold-filled is superior to gold-plated and gold vermeil in quality and price. It wears like solid gold. There is at least 5% of 14K gold by weight (or 1/20) permanently bonded to the base metal.
Not all gold-filled are created equal: for example most 18K Gold-filled, though higher in Karats, has a much thinner layer of softer gold (< 3%), making it more vulnerable to wear. This makes it - ironically - cheaper than high quality 14K Gold-filled.
High quality 1/20 14K gold-filled is fade-resistant and tarnish-resistant, lasting 10-30 years even with daily wear. This makes it very sustainable. It is safe for sensitive skin, and safe to keep on while you exercise, shower and sleep. Read about it here
