Polymer Clay Day 87: Paper Embellished Wire Wrap "BELIEVE" Pendant


This is a piece I did for Sarah! She wanted me to incorporate “Believe” into a pendant, and wanted it a similar style to the “Imagine” pendant from a couple of posts ago. I placed three beads and three wire wraps in symbolism of the trinity. Ok, now some things on belief…

John 20:27-29 “Then he said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here and see my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!’ ‘My Lord and my God!’ Thomas exclaimed. Then Jesus told him, ‘You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who haven’t seen me and believe anyway.'” NLT

Ephesians 2:8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. -This one is a favorite of mine. It was huge in my coming to Christ, as it was the first time I realized I couldn’t earn eternal life through my own good works. In other words, that being a good person, while nice, wouldn’t save me. Christ’s death on the cross was the missing piece. I don’t have to earn it (in fact I can’t earn it), and I can’t lose it.

I get like this on Sundays when I have been to an excellent worship service. Found my new church home today! Sherwood Oaks in Bloomington.
