This past week it was so appropriate that I received an early copy of Jewelry Affaire that contained an article and necklace tutorial on my word of the year for 2014. 2014 was a year of sadness, uncertainty, and challenge filled with some times of joy, accomplishment and celebration as well. My word of 2014 was TRUST and I created a necklace to remind me of just that.
My word for 2015 is COURAGE and my verse, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men (and women) of courage; be strong.” ~ 1 Corinthians 16:13. I enjoy creating something as a reminder throughout the year of my word and goal. I want to be courageous and have no fear giving my everything in faith, risks, love, heart and life. I’ve never thought of myself as a fearful person but this year after certain circumstances, I found myself experiencing it more often than I like. I will be creating a piece of jewelry as a reminder of my Word of the Year – Courage. My courage doesn’t come from me but rather from above! How about you? Do you choose a word?
If you’d like to see more jewelry projects in Jewelry Affaire you can do so when they hit the racks January 1. There are some beautiful projects from artists like my talented and dear friend Rita Reade.
