This is a bracelet I made in my first series of jewelry classes taken together with my daughter. I like hearts and swirls. I like the mixture of silver and gold, although the metals used in its creation were nickel and red brass, which are cheaper and what was available.
The two hearts represent a husband and wife. One is slightly smaller than the other, not because one is superior to the other, but because women are generally visibly smaller than men. Both are equal in the sight of God. They are loosely joined together so as to maintain their individualities, but not too loosely that they should come apart. They are golden in color, because hearts, like gold, are precious and reveal our character when tried.
The bracelet represents our eternal God. It is silver in color, because like white, it is a symbol of purity (Psalm 12:6). Silver was also used as foundation sockets for the Tabernacle (Exodus 26:15-30), and God’s pure word should be the foundation of our relationships. The hearts are attached loosely to the bracelet to represent our freedom to move about within His sovereign will.
Although many people in circles that are familiar with the KJV combine help and meet as if one word, it is actually two words that mean “a helper that is made to fit”. The word meet has a Germanic origin that means “to measure”. It makes me think of a carpenter making measurements to create a dovetail joint that must be precisely matched in order to fit perfectly together.
I just want to fit….
