The Lantern Necklace was designed with this verse in mind: “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” · Matthew 5:14
The Lantern Necklace is for the girl being a bright light in this dark world. In her workplace, to her children, with her neighbors; no matter where God has her, she is using her gifts to proclaim His name and offer unending joy.
I chose this verse which comes from Jesus’ sermon on the mount which goes on to say, “let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”.
We’re not just letting our light shine for us so that we look good. We’re doing it to point to Jesus and glorify God through our light and through the good works that we’re doing.
The design contains a glass ball pendant. Just as light can shine through the clear glass of the pendant, Jesus shines through us as we reflect and share him with other people.
This glass ball wrapped in brass hangs on the end of a 14 carat gold fill chain. It’s a perfect everyday necklace that will dress up a basic shirt. It would also be beautiful paired with something fancy.
The Lantern Necklace is a sweet gift to give to someone who you think is being a light in the world.
Gift it to them with a note saying: This verse reminds me of you. I see you as a light at church, our neighborhood, school, wherever! Don’t we all want to be seen and encouraged as we serve the Lord?
It’s also an awesome piece to remember the purpose of motherhood. We shine the light of Jesus to our children too.
