STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN
“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1  This verse was memorized, prayed, cried and spoken aloud by my husband and I continually throughout our years that we struggled with infertility.  Whether you are just beginning your journey with infertility or you’re a veteran, you know that hope is the only thing that keeps you moving forward, against all logic.  When everyone around you may tell you to let it go, the doctors give you bad report after bad report and that little voice in your head whispers “just give up”, a glimmer of hope tells you that God has something in store for you that is bigger than anything you could ever imagine.  And many times, God’s plans are completely different than yours... but please know without a doubt that those plans are always, always better than you could ever imagine.
Hope is claiming God’s promises in the middle of life’s biggest struggles.  Trusting God, even when His answer is “wait”, “not yet” or even “no”. Without the waiting, without pain, without disappointment, we could never truly understand and experience the goodness of an answered prayer, the joy of an unmistakable miracle, the power of blind faith, the healing that comes with giving your brokenness to a God who makes all things new.  
Looking back over the years of enduring loss after loss, our hearts being broken and our faith being tested, I know that God intends to use our story to encourage others.  I wanted to create a piece for anyone who is waiting for an answer from God through an infertility journey or any other hardship that requires a daily reminder that hope springs eternal.  The pearl was the first symbol that came to mind for this purpose… a treasure that literally comes from a wound as an oyster heals itself. Beauty born from pain. I pray that this necklace blesses you on your journey as God unfolds His perfect plan for you.

CARE
We want your SHINE to SHINE forever! Here are a few tips to care for your jewelry: we dip your sterling silver and 14k vermeil jewelry in a layer of rhodium, which should protect your SHINE from typical tarnish. However, to prolong the beauty and protection, you should apply all makeup, hairspray and lotions before wearing your piece, and remember to remove all jewelry before showering, swimming, and exercising. Always keep clean and dry when not in use. When storing your SHINE, you can wrap it in a soft cloth and place in a jewelry box or other sealed container to keep it from oxidizing. Please do not use any type of cleaner, chemical or polishing cloth to clean your rhodium dipped sterling or 14k gold vermeil jewelry, as these can damage your SHINE {cloths and chemicals can remove the protective rhodium / 14k coating} revealing the raw precious metal underneath and lead to tarnishing! Jewelry tarnish is the result of a natural chemical reaction between the jewelry and the surrounding environment where the jewelry becomes darkened or discolored. Humidity and individual body chemistry can contribute to the speed and severity of tarnishing. Keep the rhodium or 14k vermeil coating in place through proper care, and tarnish should not occur.
