Maker #15: Melody Joy Designs

Today's maker is Melody of Melody Joy Designs.  She has a sweet shop full of necklaces, rings, bracelets and cowls.  

Why I love her shop:

One very special aspect of her shop is her focus on family.  Her nest jewelry has one pearl "egg" for each of the children in the family.  She adds pearls of a different color to signify any babies the mother has lost as well.  I have never been pregnant so I haven't lost a child but it makes me cry just thinking about it. {It just so happens that today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.}  The nest can be made into a ring, a necklace or even a broach.

Also, she makes an awesome leather arrow bracelet with an arrow representing each child.  The inspiration for this comes from Psalm 127 that says "children are like arrows in the hand of a warrior."  I clearly remember during our six years of infertility really wishing I had arrows.  God has since richly blessed us with two children and here is my double arrow bracelet!

Please stop by her shop and link up with her on Instagram or Facebook.  You are sure to be blessed by her work!
