Beauty through Ashes Necklace


And provide for those who grieve in Zion – to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. – Isaiah 61:3


This necklace features a hand drawn water lily that I turned into a stamp. Each 14k gold-filled 12.7mm disc is hand stamped and hangs on an 16-18 inch 14k gold-filled chain.

In Isaiah 61:1 we see that Isaiah is prophetically speaking for the Messiah, and the Messiah announces that he is blessed and empowered by the Spirit of the Lord. The Messiah, through Isaiah, then declares his ministry here on earth – he was sent to bind up the broken hearted, proclaim freedom for the captives, to release prisoners from darkness, he gives prophecy of his second coming, and he will comfort those who mourn. From there we get a beautiful description of the depth of that comfort and restoration. So my question to you is, why do we sit in the ashes and indulge in a spirit of heaviness when Jesus has given us something so much better? Just like a water lily grows through the dirty, muddy water and emerges as a beautiful bloom, Jesus has come to fully restore us – he will remove the ashes and replace it with a crown of beauty. When you wear this necklace remember that we have hope for so much more.
