Giveaway From Bound With The Word.....

Today, I am excited to introduce you to a new friend of mine! Brandy, from Bound With The Word, and I met a few weeks ago at a craft show. I was so inspired by her work and her story that I asked if she might share with all of you...

Here she is to tell us about her work...in her own words....



Bound With The Word is a line of jewelry that I, Brandy Klaers, handmake. All jewelry that I create either have scripture on them, or are inspired by scripture. I make bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings. My line is offers options for men, women, and children. Customers can personalize their jewelry by choosing their own verse, and colors. The special thing about wearing Bound With The Word jewelry is that you are speaking life to yourself, and to all those you come in contact with! 
Bound With The Word was created a little over a year ago in 2011 after having several circumstances fall into place. First, I had been praying to God for a way to raise money to go to India with the organization named Hope Again. Second, I am always making something with my hands, and at that certain point in my life I was enamored with polyshrink plastic. And then third, I desired to know scripture so well that it would be written upon the table of my heart as it describes in Proverbs 7:3.
One day as I was reading in my quiet time, Deuteronomy 6:8 jumped out at me, “"And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand,” and a light bulb went off! J I created some bracelets with my favorite verses and then I posted some pictures on face book. To my surprise I had several people who actually wanted to pay me to make them some as well! Two months later I opened an Etsy account and within one year, the Lord had answered my prayer of being able to raise the money I would need to travel to India! Now I use my profit for my family, and also to help support other minsitries.
My jewelry making business has been such a blessing in unexpected ways! Its not only a business but a ministry. Customers will often share the reason why they are buying, and their prayer requests with me. Cancer of a loved one, celebration gifts for a little league baseball team, a death, needed encouragament, a gift to a Sunday School teacher, baptisms…I am honored to be able to be trusted with many tender hearts. 
I still am waiting for God’s timing for me to go to India with Hope Again. We are currently raising money to build a children’s home in Pune, India. To learn more about Hope Again please visit:www.hopeagaininternational.org.

  7. I found at least 10 that I loved. I have one left up on my screen as a BIG hint for my husband. I have never seen anything made quite like this.

    I even asked my husband if we go through the town she lives in on our way to South Carolina..... sadly, we dont'. She would be worth looking up and trying to meet. I would probably walk away from there with empty pockets.
