Verses to Live By

New to the shop is this colorful collection of bracelets that feature 1930s celluloid pin back buttons at the center. The buttons were given out to Sunday School students as awards for when they memorized Biblical verses. I chose a variety of buttons that have universal themes and a somewhat "secular" wording so that they may be worn comfortably by someone of any faith.

In this crazy world, it's a comfort to have sentiments such as these wrapping around the wrist....

Be Kind To One Another!

Love Never Faileth

Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself

Rejoice Evermore

and especially... Overcome Evil With Good
