"Pendant earrings line the elegance of your cheeks; strands of jewels illumine the curve of your throat. I'm making jewelry for you, gold and silver jewelry that will mark and accent your beauty."

I met Jesus as my Lord and Savior in 1988 in Atlanta Ga and ten years later He allowed me to serve Him in Jerusalem. It was during this mission that I was called into a ministry of reconciliation by building relationships, and encouraging Christian women throughout Israel and the West Bank – Arabs, Jews and Internationals – all are His Body needing healing and restoration in Him. While working in this ministry, the Lord gave me the vision of establishing ministry homes for women and now has become a reality with locations in Jerusalem and Nazareth. Both locations are dedicated to providing refreshment, restoration and renewal for women.

Throughout the years, the Lord has inspired many pieces of jewelry to encourage and strengthen our sisters who attended our retreats which has now expanded to women throughout the world wearing our unique designs. Each piece has a special message which when worn serves as a reminder of our identity in Him and provides opportunities to share His love with others.

I pray that our Father blesses and encourages you with might in your inner man, and that you would know what is the length, width, depth and height of His love. You are His Beloved and His desire is for you!

Your sister in Christ,
Chrissie

The Shulamite

Song of Songs 6:13

"Dance, dance, dear Shulammite, Angel-Princess! Dance, and we'll feast our eyes on your grace!" (The Message)

Who is the Shulamite? Solomon's lovely bride is called by the name "Shulamite," the feminine word for Solomon. Here, symbolically, she has taken on his character and nature. This is a picture of our oneness with Christ.

I am excited about this pendant for I desire to always remember that I am constantly falling more in love with my Savior and that his desire is oneness with me.

I pray that as your journey with Jesus continues, you experience the love of Christ and fall more in love with Him! May your identity as His bride become firmly planted within your heart and may His love for you break the yokes of unbelief from you!

Heart of our Beloved

Song of Songs 6:3

This necklace is for those who carry the heart of reconciliation that comes with faith in Jesus. The letters inside the heart proclaim, "I am my beloved's" in Hebrew, (a knee lay doe-dee) and "my beloved is mine" in Arabic (wa habibi lee) from Song of Songs 6:3.

In the Heart of our Beloved Jesus are Arabs and Jews united as One in Christ. Today, like never before, Arabs and Jews are reconciling through the blood of Jesus, laying aside the past issues and hurts in recognition that they are His Bride and desire to see His Name be exalted!

As you wear this piece, I pray that you join Jesus in His prayer recorded in John 17:22–23, "I have given them the glory you gave me so that they may be one as we are – I in them and you in me, all being perfect into one. Then the world will know that you sent me and will understand that you love them as much as you love me."

"I am my Beloved's and He is mine."

Song of Songs 6:3

Jesus loves you and you are united with Him!!!! Are you able to say to Jesus, "I am yours and You are mine? Can you see yourself as His Bride, whom He loves completely? My dear, Zephaniah 3:17 states, "He is the Mighty One who saves; He rejoices over you with gladness and singing and quiets you with His love." At this very moment, Your Savior, Your King, Your Bridegroom - Jesus is rejoicing over you!!!

I pray that as you wear this pendant, you are reminded of your special love relationship with Jesus and that all your insecurities will be quieted as you receive the love He has for you. I pray this piece will tell the world with whom you belong and that your identity is completely saturated in knowing and loving Him.

"His Desire Is for me (1)."

Song of Songs 7:10

Did you know that with every glance of your eye, the heart of Jesus is ravished? Song of Songs 4:9 tells us that each time He sees us or that we look up to Him that His heart turns flips! Truly, His chief desire is toward you!!!! He desires complete intimacy and unity with you! Jesus prayed that you would be one with Him as He is with the Father (John 17: 21). There is no separation between the two of them but only unity and love.

I pray that as you mature in your relationship with Jesus, healed from your past wounds, believing the truth of His Word and knowing that the Creator and King of the Universe is madly in love with you, that you become secure and confident in your relationship with Him, and therefore becoming a shining example of His love for others. Remember beloved, He desires you!

"His Desire Is for me (2)."

Song of Songs 7:10

Remember beloved, He desires you!

The Shields

Song of Songs 4:4

"Your neck is like the tower of David built for an armory on which hang one thousand small shields, all shields of mighty men."

You are all together lovely to your Lord and He desires to protect you from all enemy attacks. You are protected by the mighty power of God! These 1000 shields represent a far greater protection then you can imagine. The Lord of Hosts has set a heavenly army to surround you in protection and yet as His Bride, you are asked to take up your shield of faith as stated in Ephesians 6: 13-16. Your faith in Him and your identity as His Bride, is a shield against the accusations, temptations and lies Satan tries to throw at you!

The Flame of Love

Song of Songs 8:6

"Put me like a seal over your heart like a seal on your arm for love is as strong as death, jealousy is as severe as Sheol' its flahses are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord."

We call this pendant the "Flame of Love." Jesus loves you unconditionally; however, He is consumed with your being transformed into His pure and spotless Bride, ready for her wedding day.

Did you know, that a goldsmith places gold nuggets onto a flame in order to cleanse its imperfections? He knows the gold is completely purified when he can see his reflection within it.

I pray the purifying fire of Jesus removes all the imperfections from your life so that others can see His reflection in you. May His love sustain you as you are being made ready for your wedding day!

The King's Seal

Song of Songs 8:6

"Set me as a seal over your heart, like a seal upon your arm."

Our Lord Jesus, seals you with His love through His death, burial and resurrection. The symbol on this ring is the letter "Chey" which is the symbol of life and the name Yahweh, and dates back 3400 years to the original Aramaic language used in Bible times.

As you wear this ring, I pray you are reminded of your value and worth as you wear His signature upon your finger and that the lies of the enemy are broken the closer you get to Him! "For whatever is written in the King's Name and sealed with the King's signet ring no one can revoke." Esther 8:8. Beloved, you are totally His so wear His Name proudly!

 

The Song of Songs Jewelry Collection

the story of the Song of Solomon Jewelry Collection

The inspiration for this exquisite jewelry collection was birthed with the meeting of an author and an artist. Bob Emery was on a business trip in Israel. He had just finished his latest book entitled, His Desire Is for Me, a 30-Day Devotional and Commentary on the Song of Songs. While in a jewelry story in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem Bob came across a pendant crafted by Johnny, the owner of the store. It was one that I had designed that I call "The Heart of our Beloved." It is a silver and gold, heart-shaped pendant inscribed within–half in Arabic and half in Hebrew–with a verse from Song of Songs chapter 6, verse 3: "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." Knowing this would make the perfect gift, Bob purchased it for his wife, Sandra.

The following day I had an appointment with Bob (whom I had never met before) to discuss my women's ministry with him. It's called "The Tent, Inc." and our vision is to reach out to Arabic and Jewish women with the love of Jesus. When we met, Bob immediately noticed the pendant that I wore around my neck. It was the same one that he had purchased at Johnny's shop! "What fine taste in jewelry," he said to me. "I just purchased the same exact piece yesterday in the Old City."

My response surprised him. "Yes, I like it very much as well," I said, "after all, I designed it."

With that, a friendship was born. Bob shared a copy of his manuscript with me (my favorite book in the Bible happens to be The Song of Songs!) Subsequently, the two of us began discussing the idea of designing some other pieces of custom jewelry with themes related to the Song of Songs.

The Song of Songs is a love song. Like no other book in the Bible, it reveals the passionate, intimate love that God has for you as pictured in the love between King Solomon and his Shulamite bride. This jewelry collection was created especially with you in mind. Wear it, and be continually reminded, as I am, of the Lord's love and that His Desire Is for You!
