Dear Mushka,

Christian Apparel for a Cozy Fall Season

Cooler weather calls for us to bring out cozy sweaters, tees and accessories as we appreciate beautiful Autumn days and prepare for the coming winter.  However you wear these Scripture-inspired pieces, spend time praising God for giving us His Word, and for His love that remains faithful in the midst of incredibly joyful seasons (marriage, children, travel) and incredibly hard seasons (death of a loved one, suffering, illness). His love endures forever.

The Warrior Tee

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them · Psalm 127: 4-5

Meet our first men's tee! A reminder that we are to mold and shape our children to then shoot them out into the world, for God's Kingdom!

The Dwelling Tee

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God · Revelation 21:3

This is the coziest tee you'll ever own. I guarantee, you won't want to take it off! Wear it alone or adorably layered under a warm cardigan or flannel. 

A beautiful promise to wrap yourself in all cold-weather long. 

On Earth Raglan Tee

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven · Matthew 6:10

A crazy soft raglan tee that boasts words from Jesus as He taught His disciples to pray. May we put it on and remember that as image bearers of God, we are to work with Him to bring His holy and just Kingdom to Earth. Let's pray & then act, together.  This heather grey and dark charcoal raglan tee with black writing is printed locally in Nashville, TN.

The Abide Tee

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me · John 15:4

A happy, pink tee with the sweetest reminder to abide in Christ daily. Need I say more? Bonus: It's extra long, perfect for layering over yoga pants! This soft heathered light pink tee has a relaxed fit for easy and comfy style.

The Better Days Hat

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." -Revelation 21:4

This year is proof that our world is broken. May we fix our eyes on eternity and praise God for the better days He has promised us! Click to shop this navy cotton hat with mesh backing.

The Thicket Tee

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing · John 15:5

When our to-do lists are calling and we find ourselves striving to do it all on our own, The Thicket Tee is a much-needed reminder that we are only branches. For sweet growth & productivity, we must first tether ourselves to the true vine. It's only with Him that we can accomplish anything. 

On Sundays Tee

Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath." - Mark 2:27

A soft & cozy tee, able to be dressed up for Sunday church and then tossed on over leggings for Sunday afternoon. However you wear her, spend time praising God for giving us a day of rest and use the day to put your security in Him alone.

Love One Another Hoodie

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." -John 13:34-25 

A forest green hoodie you're going to want to snuggle up in daily, with a message we all need to hear. Let's praise Jesus for His example, and show the world what it means to be a disciple of Christ. Love.  

The Adorn Hairtie

"Let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." - 1 Peter 3:4

These sweet hair ties are easy to wear, and come with a precious reminder to adorn yourself with a gentle and quiet spirit before anything else.

They'll add the perfect amount of style to your everyday outfit! This versatile 3 in 1 design means you can tie the scarf into a bow or remove the scarf all together to have a scrunchie and ribbon. Available in five colors.

Christian Jewelry Pieces to Celebrate Fall

In honor of the Dear Mushka Fall Line, here’s a real glimpse into how I use these new Fall pieces on an average day. Each piece is created with the intention that they act as an encouragement and inspiration for you to live from God’s word and share His message with those around you. 

Watch my Instagram highlight here to see how I’ve styled these Fall accessories!

The Nearness Earrings

"Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded." James 4:8

I couldn’t love the Nearness Earrings more! They’re lightweight and breezy even though they’re a little bigger than our normal style. The ‘U’ shape reminds us that meeting with God requires an effort on both sides. We have to go to Him. The beauty is that we can only do this by God’s power. He equips us to draw near to Him!

The Adorn Hair Tie

Today I put my hair up into an easy bun and fastened it with an Adorn Hair Tie. They come in black, red, green and navy. Take the tie part off, leave the tie long, or tie into a bow. I took the ribbon part off and added it to my purse for a little something extra - I’ll leave it there all season! This versatile hair tie is a truly happy pop of Fall.

This Christian inspired accessory comes with a verse from 1 Peter 3:4, "Let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."

The Rooted Necklace

"Blessed is the one ...whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers." Psalm 1:1-3

Psalm 1 roots all the others Psalms, and this is what I think about when I spend time with God each morning. We need to plant our roots deep!

My prayer for you and all these pieces is that you meditate on God’s words as you put each jewelry piece on. Hang the verse card up and learn it! Take God’s words with you during your day. Let them encourage your own soul and others as they flow off your tongue.  

As I put these pieces on today, I said the verses and prayed that God would use these truths. Let’s go out feeling equipped to tackle this day in Jesus’ name through His words.

Dear Mushka's 2020 Fall Line

I’ve been planning our fall line for months, getting feedback and praying like crazy over each of these pieces. Today, meet four of our new Christian jewelry and apparel pieces!

The Reflection Necklace

I took a poll and many of you were unsure of if you would wear a face necklace, but the trend got the best of me and so I decided to try it! When one of my followers sent me this verse, I couldn’t get it out of my head - the perfect verse for the Reflection Necklace.

"As water reflects the face, so one's life reflects the heart." Proverbs 27:19

As we wear this precious face, let us consider our days and how they accurately reflect our hearts. Do they show our love for God and His people? 

The Nearness Earrings

This design came before the verse which God later gave me Jame 4:8 to pair with. These everyday earrings were our models favorites - everyone who has seen these wants them! 

James 4:8 is one of the first verses I memorized and I remember meditating on it as a child. "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded." James 4:8

The Nearness Earrings are shaped like a ‘U’ to remind us that as we draw near to God, He too draws near to us. We meet in the middle and it is there we'll be able to rest in His care. Let's purify our hearts and minds so that we're able to see His ever-present nature.

As an adult, I've gained so much wisdom from the rest of the verse: “Cleanse your hands and purify your heart…” Anyone else experience times when God doesn’t feel near, but as it turns out, we’re the ones who haven’t made room for Him? He never leaves us - we leave Him! Let’s ask ourselves, “Are we too busy to hear Him and experience His presence?

The Rooted Necklace

The Rooted Necklace holds a tiny branch-stamped pendant that comes in gold, rose gold and sterling silver. We continue to use this size disk because it’s the perfect everyday necklace size.

“Rooted” reminds me of many Bible verses, but I wanted to have a Psalm 1 piece as I feel it really encapsulates the Psalms so well. Root yourself in Scripture, in who God is, in His character and His law. There and only there will we bear fruit and prosper and be fed and nourished.

"Blessed is the one ...whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers." Psalm 1:1-3

The Love One Another Hoodie

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34-35 

I love how this verse reminds us that we have the example of Jesus to lead and guide us! And importantly, let’s remember that we have a goal - to show people that we are Christ’s disciples.

Snuggle up in this warm, heavy hoodie and meditate on this message. Let's praise Jesus for His example, and show the world what it means to be a disciple of Christ.

A Reminder To Keep Your Eyes On The Lord

For the mind that feels overwhelmed in a busy world and wants to focus on what matters most, "Crescent" is a wearable reminder that says: look up sweet sister, look up. 

A crescent pendant hovers mid-chest and proves to be a lovely everyday necklace with a much-needed message. Set like a crescent moon, this necklace was created to remind us of this verse: “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2

What an amazing verse to meditate on. What is above? Not the moon! If you have been raised with Christ to seek things that are above, we seek heaven and the throne of God. 

I pray you memorize this verse, and put the verse card where you can see it. Think through this passage. What does it mean? Maybe it’s something to study. What does it mean that we are hidden in Christ? These verses are more than temporary encouragement-givers. They are truths meant to draw us into worship.

Allow the Scripture to seep into your soul and allow God to do His work there so that it overflows into your life, your conversation and your actions.

I hope you love this necklace and that it causes you to think about God and set your eyes on things above. I hope it draws you into this chapter of Colossians. Read it! Listen to it! Take it from your neck to your heart, mind and mouth and into transformative power that only the Holy Spirit can give.

Christian Gifts for Daily Spiritual Growth

For the mind that feels overwhelmed in a busy world and wants to focus on what matters most, these handmade jewelry pieces, Christian art and apparel all come paired with a Scripture quote reminding the wearer of the guidance and direction God’s Word offers us.

Hear, retain, and persevere, sister.

But the seeds on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop · Luke 8:15

The Hatch Necklace

A beautiful piece for a new believer or baptism day!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. · 2 Corinthians 5:17

The Promise Pack

So that scripture is at the front of your mind and heart.

"In my time of trouble I like to find a promise which exactly fits my need, and then to put my finger on it, and say, 'Lord, this is thy word; I beseech thee to prove that it is so, by carrying it out in my case.  I believe that this is your own writing; and I pray thee make it good to my faith'" -Charles Spurgeon, 19th Century British Preacher

Nothing has shaped my faith more than memorizing scripture, and it is with great joy that we welcome in this promise pack-- 52 promises from God's heart straight to yours, printed on durable paper meant to be touched and loved.

The Honey Necklace

A reminder that getting in the Word is always of utmost value.

God's words are more precious than gold and sweeter than honey. · Psalm 19:10, shortened

The Honey Necklace is the sweetest reminder of what is most valuable is this world. It's gold color and honey drop shape both serve as subtle hints to seek God's words before the details that make up this brilliant necklace. It is lovely, yes, but only when put in its proper place of value.

The Fruit of the Spirit Print

To keep our hearts focused on what matters most.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law · Galatians 5:22-23

A sweet work of art in collaboration with SalThe print for our Spring 2017 Fruit of the Spirit line! Hang these fruits in any room for a constant reminder that the Holy Spirit lives inside of you, Sister! Do this life out of His perfect abilities and characteristics, not your own.

The Daughter Studs

Knowing you can run to God with confidence will change your soul.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need · Hebrews 4:16

The Daughter Studs are sweet & tiny with a little pop of happy color. They're easy to wear all day and are shaped like small crowns for the reminder: We are daughters of the most High King and can approach his throne confidently; let's head there together, Sisters. 

The Psalm 103:8 Print

Because focusing on God's character is sure to change ours.

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love · Psalm 103:8

A ready-to-frame print made for an eternity-focused home. Add it to a gallery wall or let it stand alone, it's beautiful either way.

The Priority Ring

A reminder to seek His kingdom first, the rest will fall into place.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be provided for you · Matthew 6:33

How To Build Faith That Moves Mountains

Say hi to the new girl in town! The Mustard Seed Necklace reminds me of my mom who used to wear a necklace very similar to this one all the time. 

Meant to look like a little seed, this dainty necklace was created with Matthew 17:20 in mind, "For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you." 

A mustard seed is tiny, but it grows into a big plant reminding us that it’s not the size of our faith that matters, but who we put our faith in.

This Bible passage comes from when the disciples were unable to cast out a demon. Jesus rebuked them and said that they had the wrong faith - they weren’t praying as they worked. Bible study suggests that they were putting their faith in themselves instead of God, or not casting out demons by praying, but using only their own words and ideas.

I’m guilty of putting my faith in my own “good works” instead of in Jesus! It’s easy to feel as though we’re trusting God when we’re actually feeling powerful because we do regular quiet time, or know lots of Scripture. But truly, it’s not about what we do, it’s who we put our faith in. As you wear this necklace, I hope it will remind you to put your hope in Jesus.

A precious drop necklace to remind you the great power that faith in Christ offers. Let's pray for an ever-increasing heart of faith as we run our race this side of Eternity!

Christian Gifts for Those in Need of Direction

We all need a little help finding our way sometimes. These handmade jewelry pieces that come with carefully chosen Scripture passages encourage us to look to God for help and direction. 

The Parallel Cuff 

A personal favorite, this verse has helped me time and time again.

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore · Psalm 16:11

Two parallel lines follow one another around your wrist, calling to mind the truths in this psalm. When we trust God and keep our path in sync with His, there we meet the greatest joy. Place this on your right hand and remember where pleasures forevermore lay.

A perfect minimal bracelet for anyone in need of a little guidance and a little arm shine.

The Guide Necklace

A reminder that God gives instruction and counsel.

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will counsel you with my loving eye upon you · Psalm 32:8

The Guide Necklace mimics an eye as a reminder that God sees us and offers counsel and instruction in our every day. We don't have to go it alone; we have the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit with us, always!

The Ambassador Necklace 

Because you are chosen & on mission…

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light · 1 Peter 2:9

Read this verse slowly, sister. You are chosen, royal, holy, & called. When you wear The Ambassador Necklace, never forget your identity in Christ. And as the disks catch & reflect the light, boldly proclaim the "excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light" to those around you. 

The Vision Cuff 

Keep your eyes on God.

I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken · Psalm 16:8

Three diamonds hook together to create "Vision", a timeless brass cuff meant to turn your eyes towards God.

Slip it on your right hand and trust that you won't be shaken.

A Citizen Tee

A dear reminder that this world is not our home

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ · Philippians 3:20

This soft tee bears the word "citizen" written as a mirror image, resembling a foreign language to others but reminding you of your citizen standing when you look in the mirror. 

The Path Necklace

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." -Proverbs 3:5-6

When decisions are confusing and wisdom is lacking, The Path Necklace seeks to turn your heart towards the best map full of real direction and solid guidance.

Look up, sweet sister, and then put one foot in front of the other as you walk your road alongside the Lord. 

The Aim Necklace 

To help remind you where your focus should always stay.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men · Colossians 3:23

Gift the Aim necklace to the girl who is swimming in laundry and child-rearing or studying and career launching or world traveling and people meeting: Whatever your day finds you doing, sister, aim it all towards the Lord. When He is the recipient of our energy we will find sweet joy and contentment, and our work will never be in vain. 

A Philippians 4:8 Art Print

To direct your thoughts

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. · Philippians 4:8

A ready-to-frame print made for an eternity-focused home.

The Priority Ring

A reminder to seek His Kingdom first, the rest will fall into place.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be provided for you · Matthew 6:33

In a world of social media and to-do lists constantly calling for your attention, the Priority Rings offer an alternative direction for your hands. Seek first the kingdom of God (His face, desires, word, voice, reign); the rest will fall into place. 

The Gospel Necklace

Because no matter what, how beautiful are your feet when you live on mission. 

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news · Isaiah 52:7

The Gospel Necklace is full of imagery. Two feet ready to walk out into the world, a mountain, an arrow. In any case, how beautiful is the girl who brings the Gospel to those in need. Share it boldly, sisters!

The Steward Bracelet

A call to use your gifts for God's kingdom and glory. 

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms · 1 Peter 4:10

God has made each of us to reflect His image in unique ways. Stamp the underside of the Steward bracelet with your initial, enneagram number, etc., and use what you've beautifully been given for His glory and Kingdom.

The Renew Earrings

A reminder to conform to Christ, not this world. 

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. · Romans 12:2

The Renew Earrings are playful and fun and stand out a little from the products we normally carry- a perfect example of this verse in Romans. Sister, do not conform to this world; instead, let God renew your mind and show you His good and perfect will. 

As you slide these beautiful tassel earrings in (resembling little brooms!) think about your mind being swept and renewed through the The Holy Spirit & God's Word.

A Christian Jewelry Gift To Comfort Those In Need

This extra special necklace was created especially for those going through issues regarding chronic health - depression, anxiety, a child with special needs, cancer - any illness where it feels as though the outer self is just wasting away.

The design is of an orb surrounded by a shell that is ‘wasting away’ and calls to mind the Bible verse the Enduring Necklace comes paired with: “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison” · 2 Corinthians 4:16-17

Even as our outer part wastes away, so our inner soul shines forth and is renewed. Our inner self is being renewed day by day. This is a beautiful reminder that in the span of all eternity, in this light and momentary affliction, He is preparing us for something far greater and more glorious than we can imagine. 

The Enduring Necklace is meant to be a tangible reminder of this beautiful verse from 2 Corinthians. Though we are wasting away on the outside, our inner self is being renewed and shining out, for something far greater and more glorious than we can imagine. 

Makes a beautiful gift for someone parenting a child with special needs, battling chronic illness, fighting anxiety and depression, walking through loss, etc. Let us hope for eternity and complete renewal together!

How To Magnify The Lord's Name

Long necklaces may not always be the best everyday necklace for those of us with little ones, but I believe there’s still a place for a few in your jewelry collection. Think church, dates, social events, work, etc! If you don’t have little kids, the Magnify Necklace might indeed make a great everyday necklace for you! Made of woven glass beads, this sweet dainty necklace is meant to resemble a little magnifying glass.

Psalm 34:3 is the first verse I put to a little tune and taught to my son. "Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!" Psalm 34:3

We’d sing the words before we’d read the Bible to signify that the Bible is a different and extra special book. 

To magnify means to make bigger! As John the Baptist said, “He must increase and I must decrease”. We are making God’s name bigger in our hearts, homes and tongues.

Wear the Magnify Necklace on a date night and remember the purpose of being together - we aren’t just enjoying one another - we’re on a mission! Magnifying God through this relationship. 

The Magnify Necklace is shaped like a whimsical magnifying glass, as she calls to mind Psalm 34:3-- which is a verse I think about in all relationships.

In our marriages, may we magnify God's name together. As friends, can we spur on our sisters to run this race with praise in every step? As mothers, may we lead our children in exalting God's name. 

Pair this with a breezy tank and shorts or a fancy dress, you're going to love it with either! Wear it to church and think about the body of Christ magnifying God together.

It’s a beautiful gift for a friend! Give it along with a note saying, “Sister, we’re more than just girl pals! I love magnifying God with you as we run this race together!”

And thank you, friends, for magnifying the Lord with me in this space.
