My newest listing on Etsy........Sterling Silver & Freshwater Pearl Temple Pendant. In my descriptions, I'm trying to do a better job of sharing the story behind the name. I created this pendant yesterday afternoon, after a particularly thought-provoking church service. Actually, I was working on a pair of the Molten Bar & Pearl Earrings for Brazen Betties and as I was polishing them, this idea for a pendant came to me.
The Temple is only a building. A building of significance but still, only a building. The real importance lies in what comes out of that building and what it holds dear. A Temple holds dear the word of God and teaches the word of God to those who enter. Those who enter come out again stronger and more faithful for those teachings. No matter the condition of the building, if it is serving it's purpose, it will contain a gift greater than the most precious jewel.
