I wanted to make a meaningful jewelry piece to mark the Feast of the Annunciation. The hand-painted pendant at the center of the necklace depicts St. Gabriel during the Annunciation, when he informed the Virgin Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus Christ.

Our hand-painted focal beads are the perfect way to make a meaningful jewelry design even more special. This focal bead is perfect for honoring the Feast of the Annunciation, which traditionally falls on March 25. Amethyst gemstone beads from Dakota Stones make a beautiful backdrop for the focal, while Czech glass accents pick up on the colors of the focal bead.
