The Beginnings of a Business and a Ministry
My name is Brandy Klaers, and I am the jewelry designer behind Bound With The Word. I am a mother of three, and lover of Jesus. I began making jewelry back in 2011. My jewelry business was brought to life by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and from my love of creating things using my hands.
This verse :
"And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand,
and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes."
is what stirred me. I began by creating bracelets for myself to wear in order to strengthen my faith through the Word. When I posted a picture of some bracelets on Facebook, the responses were so positive! Friends began requesting that I make them bracelets with their favorite verses. About 3 months later, I opened up my first Etsy shop!
Since then, God has blessed my hands and helped me to branch out into creating God-glorifying jewelry in not only plastic but also wire, metal smithing, and hand embroidery.
Creating inspired jewelry is not only a business to me, but most importantly a ministry. Often, I am blessed to have customers share with me their stories, and the reasons behind the scriptures that they have chosen. I feel honored to be entrusted with prayer requests!
God has helped me raise the money I needed to go and serve in India by making jewelry. In 2014, I was able to go not only once, but twice to India to serve. I worked with Hindu, and Muslim mothers who I sat with each day, teaching them across language barriers how to make jewelry themselves. I was able to show them the love of Christ, pray with them, encourage them, and bring their items back to the US and sell them to profit their families. I desire to continue to be involved in ministry very similar to this. I know God has blessed my hands to create things for His glory and to help others.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:
To look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep
oneself from being polluted by the world."
