Erin is hosting a Blog hop inspired by this story. She created polymer beads just for this hop, and I was a lucky winner from one of the ABS Studio Saturday posts. This is the bead I received---gorgeous!
'you are a child of God, and with credentials like that you can do anything'
At first I started to make a bracelet but it didn't show Erin's bead the way I wanted, and ended up with this necklace. By the way, Erin's bead spins around so you can read it all.
I wanted the piece to be bright and cheerful because knowing I'm a child of God makes me very happy.
Included in the necklace are flowered polymer beads from Too Aquarius,teal lampwork beads from Lynda's Bead Dreams, green vintage beads, a jasper bead, tiny Czech bead, plus a lot of Vintaj Components; washers, 'Hope' ring, 'Believe' Ring, a flower pendant, and chain. Honestly I'm not happy with the placement of those rings. They look fine in the photo but not when worn. I wanted to redo it but simply ran out of time.

I encourage you to read the inspiration for these beads and the blog hop. Also visit Erin's blog to see what the other participants have made.
