I am thrilled to be featuring Cindy of CKSilver - a fantastic jewelry artisan.

I am going to get right to the GIVEAWAY BRACELET - This is a $49 value.
 The first picture is one of my favorites. Walking through the woods is such a wonderful way to be close to God.  This is what they remind me of.

Allow me to introduce Cindy!
 My name is Cindy, and I am a jewelry designer specializing in sterling silver, genuine gemstones, freshwater pearls, and swarovski crystal. I love what I do, and am constantly fascinated with new ways that I can reflect the beauty of creation all around me.
 God has blessed my husband and I with two wonderful biological children, and now we have the opportunity to do foster care. I also have my own marketing business and play the piano, both of which I enjoy immensely and they give me another outlet for my creativity.

My faith is very important to me. I grew up in a Christian home, and put my faith in Christ at a very early age. And although I believed in Jesus, it wasn't until more recently that God has really grown my faith.
I used to think that I just had to try harder to have more faith, and that if I worked hard enough at it I would have success. I remember being at a worship service with some friends and feeling like I was on the outside looking in at something they had that I didn't. So I began to seek God more earnestly in my life, and kept telling Him that more than anything in my life I wanted to know Him more intimately. I am still learning and growing, and God is teaching me a lot.
One of my favorite Bible verses has become:

"Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." I want to keep asking Him to show me more of Himself, and to help me love Him more all the time, and to keep growing my faith.
Jeremiah 33:3
 I have all birthstones available, and am happy to do custom orders as well.

I love Cindy's grape cluster earrings. I own earrings (they are the same as Cindy's avatar) and they are gorgeous! I special ordered a necklace to match and every time I wear the set I get compliments.
