When we found this quote by Henri Nouwen, we couldn’t design a necklace for it fast enough. It’s a message every woman can relate to at some point in her life. We hope that by wearing this necklace, it serves as a constant reminder of these truths for your heart and mind.
With this design we start with an 18mm (just under 3/4″) hand cast pewter washer and stamp the word “beloved” into the metal. We darken the letters and texturize the piece with one of our favorite jewelry texture hammers. The font used on this necklace is only 1.5mm, so it is very tiny. While the font isn’t able to be easily read from a distance, we really liked that aspect for this piece since it’s main purpose is intended to speak to the wearer’s heart.
Chain length: 22″ stainless steel
Display Card Quote: “These feelings, strong as they may be, are not telling me the truth about myself. The truth, though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God’s eyes, called the beloved from all eternity, and held safe in an everlasting embrace.” – Henri Nouwen
