    Weaving Beauty with Truth

    Launch of our TRUTH Bracelet Collection
    Amidst all that’s going on in our society today — COVID-fatigue, election-news-exhaustion (no matter what side of the isle), or just your average daylight-savings-time-draining…whatever it may be in your world — we each are weary, on-edge and looking for light at the end of the tunnel! We are longing for normalcy, assurances, and hope!
    Well, maybe I need to hear this today more than any of you all, but Jesus is the answer. No vaccine (however desperately necessary this is and I cannot wait for it to be a reality) and no politician (no matter if you are red or blue) can give us what Jesus can. Pandemic or not — did you know HE promises you “PEACE that passes ALL understanding”? (Philippians 4:7) YES! The full spectrum of peace at ANY time and in ANY season, conflict, problem or hardship. HE is the only one that gives us more faith (when we ask!) in the face of fear — faith that rises in spite of the facts on the ground. Supernatural FAITH that’s rooted in Him and grows in response to the dismal earth-side visuals. He is the only one that gives HOPE —“living and active HOPE” to be precise (Hebrews 4:12) — that eclipses every hopeless, despondent and most impossible of situations. He’s THE ONLY one full of grace that lavishes us with a LOVE that surpasses measure, transcends reason, and overshadows both death and the “law”.  
    No matter what season of life you are in, be encouraged that Jesus came here to “transform the Valley of Trouble into a DOORWAY of HOPE!” (Hosea 2:15) 

    HOPE that cannot be stolen and is fully reliant on HIS NATURE —not on what you can offer, bring to or do for Him. Through thick and thin, highs and lows, mistakes and triumphs, failures or feats…this means God remains a fiercely-loyal Promise-keeper to you! “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ALL ‘YES’ through Christ Jesus!” (2 Corinthians 1:20) It’s the template of the Cross — victory from ashes, triumph emerging from loss, what looks like the end is actually the beginning — that’s unwavering HOPE! His Victory on the Cross cannot been revoked, altered, replaced, or changed — He overcame it ALL — so that now…who we are in Christ and what is promised to us through Christ cannot be taken from us no matter the circumstance or challenge. It’s untouchable and simply never at risk. Even in the midst of a global pandemic — your identity in Him — what He did for you and how loved you are — endures eternally! His Promises override, outweigh, supersede and trump any and all circumstances you may be facing! 🏻 Circumstances are ALWAYS changing, but the Lord God our ROCK is the ONLY thing that is unchanging, immovable, imperishable, unshakable, foundational; the only One who never fails us and is steadfast in delivering on all His promises! May the posture of our hearts be to FEAR NOT...because, GOD!  #hopeisntcancelled


    His mercies are new every morning. His promises always hold true. He is faithful even when we are not. Jesus came here to meet us where we are, to make us whole, to bring HOPE to the hopeless, to bind up the broken-hearted, to give us a spirit of JOY instead of mourning — to heal, revive, rebuild, redeem and restore us.

    Praying you look to THE ONE who NEVER changes to provide you with a “peace that passes all understanding”, with wisdom, comfort, rest, encouragement, joy, protection and SO MUCH HOPE! Praying these Truths wash over you fresh today!

    “May the Lord Himself — the Lord of PEACE — pour into you His peace in every circumstance and in every possible way. The Lord’s tangible presence be with you all!” (2 Thessalonians 3:16)

    This collection of wearable-reminder Truth-bracelets seemed particularly important and timely during this challenging, strife-filled, chaotic, grueling, dividing and uncertain season in our world today. The Lord specifically placed 5 words so palpably on my heart for this project! LOVE, JOY, PEACE, FAITH and HOPE! Some reflect fruits of the spirit, some reflect His nature, some reflect the greatest commandment and each bracelet encompasses things we each crave, need, want and must pass on to a lost and hurting world!


    Collection verses:

    -“May the God of HOPE fill you with all JOY and PEACE as you trust in Him, so that you may OVERFLOW with HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

    -“You can have all the FAITH in the world — FAITH that can move mountains — but WITHOUT LOVE, you have NOTHING! (1 Corinthians 13:2)….”And now these three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. But the GREATEST of these is LOVE!” (1 Corinthians 13:13)

    -“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing LOVE for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of PEACE be removed — says the Lord — who has compassion on you." (Isaiah 54:10)

    -“LOVE does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always HOPES, always perseveres." (1 Corinthians 13:6-7)

    -“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the protective shadow of the Almighty! The Lord is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust! He will shelter you with His wings, FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS IS LIKE A SHIELD — a protective wall! No harm will overtake you; no illness will come near your home. For He will command His angels concerning you — to guard you in all your ways!” (Psalm 91:1-2, 4, 10)

    -“The Lord your God is in your midst; He is a warrior who can deliver! He takes great delight in you; He renews you by His LOVE; He shouts for JOY over you." (Zephaniah 3:17)

    -“A new command I give you: LOVE one another, JUST AS I have loved you! By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you LOVE one another.” (John 13:34-25)-“But this I call to mind and therefore I have HOPE — the steadfast LOVE of the Lord NEVER ceases; His mercies are NEW every morning; great is HIS FAITHFULNESS!” (Lamentations 3:22-23)

    -“For you shall go out with JOY, and be led forth with PEACE!” (Isaiah 55:12)

    Each bracelet comes accompanied by a custom-made, GT-original, watercolor calligraphy scripture card. These bracelets were created to encourage you towards God’s truth as tangible reminders of who our God is, what is yours through Jesus and who you are in Him! Our hope is that you gift these pieces to yourself and others this coming Christmas season! We recommend stacking all 5 words and bracelets together + using each verse card as daily encouragement — whether you put them on your refrigerator, mirror, dashboard, or bedside — let His Truth and life-giving words wash over you anew each day!

    Each verse card is overflowing with florals in the same way God has a flourishing path and abundant purposes in store for your life as well! We pray these pieces prompt, propel and spur you on in your one true identity and in your daily journey to meet with the Lord for relationship, renewal, and a reset onto His life-transforming Gospel of Grace!

    Our Truth-Bracelets are made with stainless steel gold beads along with enamel letter beads. Bracelets are elastic and will stretch to fit women of all sizes and ages.

    The KEY to Freedom

    I am OVERJOYED to present to you our latest Gospel-focused project — and I just can’t wait to share with you the story and the heartbeat behind this treasured piece!

    It is with great anticipation and expectation, that I introduce to you our Freedom Key Necklace!
    I love how Jesus works, y’all! My friend, Emily Mock, had a vivid vision of seeing Jesus in front of her church wearing a key necklace. He picked up the key and put it into someone's heart. As He turned the key, their grave clothes fell to the ground instantly. Jesus went around to each person in the church, one by one, and unlocked their hearts. They began to shine bright with new life.

    I wept as she shared her story, yall! Jesus immediately pressed upon my spirit the revelation that He is the KEY to freedom! He unlocks our hearts, and then gives us the same key to wear to go unlock the hearts of others.

    Emily came to me with this idea of creating the same key necklace she saw in her vision of Jesus and I couldn’t start the sketches fast enough! YES, I thought! What a necessary and visual tool to encourage and bring so much hope to each and every one of us! Personal-Testimony-Jesus-Reminders — we must remember what we possess AND of where the Lord has rescued us from!

    Weaving beauty with Truth is both my greatest passion and joyful purpose — to use creativity, testimony and timeless jewelry to bring Jesus and the great hope of the Gospel to a lost and hurting world.


    Our mission here at GT:

    “Publish His glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the wondrous works He does!” (Psalm 96:3)

    Ok, here’s the good stuff — the breakdown of the meaningful details and the significance of each portion of the design:

    Royal Crown: The crown represents King Jesus, the King of Kings.

    Key: The key represents the opening into newness of life. Those who have authority carry keys.

    Cross: The cross at the bottom of the key represents the first access point Jesus has into the human heart. The Gospel message is the cross. There is a cross-shaped hole in our hearts that only He can fill.

    We, as Believers, hold the answer to the freedom our world is so desperately searching for. This necklace is to be worn as a physical reminder of the freedom we have in Jesus and the answer of hope we carry out into the world!

    "My beloved reached into me to unlock my heart. The core of my very being trembled at His touch. How my soul melted when He spoke to me!" (Song of Songs 5:4)
    "God considers all of humanity to be prisoners of their unbelief, so that He can unlock our hearts and show His tender mercies to all who come to Him.” (Romans 11: 32)

    Thrilled to finally be launching this beautiful piece! This necklace would make a perfect gift — for yourself or others — a wonderful conversation-starter and a tangible reminder of His Gospel — Jesus came to rescue and recover sinners — He came to “set the captives free”! (Isaiah 61:1) Praying you wear our Freedom Key and share this life-changing GOOD news with those around you — for we are not without hope!

    All glory to our Blessed Redeemer and Chain-Breaker,


     

    The Freedom Key Necklace starts at just $48! Our Key comes on a 30-inch chain and comes complete with 5 custom-made watercolor calligraphy scripture cards. Be sure to check out our fine Freedom Key Necklace also. 

    A portion of proceeds for The Freedom Key goes to the 501c3 nonprofit organization, For the One International.  After a mission trip to the villages of Panama and seeing children in poverty, Garrett and Emily Mock decided to meet the immediate need there and begin two feeding centers for malnourished children. Now, hundreds of children are fed one meal a day. Future plans are more feeding centers, building a home for orphans, and expanding their reach to serve children in other countries. Thank you for partnering with For the One! Visit www.FortheOneInternational.com.

    Golden Thread's Gratitude Campaign for Healthcare Workers

     FEARLESS on the Frontline

    THANK YOU to our HEROES!! Thank you for using your “gift” to serve our country during our greatest time of need! What would we do without you and your FEARLESS service? In May, we launched our GRATITUDE CAMPAIGN here at Golden Thread: FEARLESS on the Front Lines — based on our heart’s outpouring of thankfulness and just a small way we can #giveback to our healthcare workers! 

     As a former ICU nurse, I wanted to personally thank our active healthcare workers for serving our nation during this viral crisis! Thank them for fearlessly, sacrificially, lovingly and valiantly caring for our nation’s sick and hurting. 

    They put themselves in harm's way every single day, they put their own lives on the line in this war to save others and they are the real heroes of this pandemic!  Where would we be without their noble commitment and enduring dedication?

    In the face of fear, they showed up!

    In the face of the unknown, they rose to the occasion!

    In the face of shortage, they chose to persevere! 

    May we never forget their undaunted courage, the work of their healing hands, their many acts of comfort, protection, relief and support of our people during this global emergency! 

    We couldn’t let it go unsaid how grateful we are for them and for their service. It was an absolute JOY to gift our healthcare workers on the front-lines our best-selling FEARLESS Necklace (valued at $75)! The gift came in a BLUE box to represent their courage and the worldwide healthcare color of BLUE! 

    We hope they continue to wear this gift as a reminder of their FEARLESSNESS during our country’s greatest time of need!

    We’ve already given away almost 1,000 necklaces to healthcare workers all over the USA! If YOU are an active healthcare worker on the frontlines of this pandemic, we want to thank you with a free gift! To receive this gift, healthcare workers need to contact us at questions@goldenthreadshop.com for more information! (*While supplies last) #FearlessontheFrontLine

    “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve one another, as faithful stewards of the manifold grace of God!” 1 Peter 4:10

    We are beyond grateful for YOU and your service,

    Supporting Our Community During COVID-19

    As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have an increased impact on our communities, we want to take a moment to connect with you directly, and let you know we’re here for you and praying for you and your family!

    For you — our customers — we are thankful for your continued purchases and support! We are still up and running and shipping out orders — please keep shopping with GT and supporting our small business! We can send care-packages to loved ones under quarantine, including custom notes, encouragements, etc! Just let us know your needs! 


    As a nurse, mother and business owner, I want you to know that the health and safety of my GT Team is my utmost priority! We’ve shifted schedules, allowed employees to work from home and are following all CDC guidelines to keep both you and our team safe. For the safety of both you and our staff, our showroom will be closed until further notice. We will continue to ship your orders in a timely manner. Please bear with us, should delays in production arise. We deeply appreciate you and your patience as we navigate this together!

    We understand shopping for jewelry might not be at the top of the priority list right now, but we hope our continued emails and sales bring you encouragement and JOY!

    We feel as a Houston-based business, it is a duty and honor to support our local community! We have felt called to stand up and do something for our beloved community and hometown — to meet the immediate and desperate need, and be the hands and feet of Jesus!

    It’s a joy to rally around and to serve those in need right here in our city. We are heartbroken over the statistics the pandemic is causing in our community. With our school districts closed for the foreseeable future, the children that rely on meals at school will be struggling. One of the most significant impacts of the pandemic has been school closures. Without access to school meals, children lose a consistent source of healthy food each day. The Houston Food Bank will continue to work with school districts and local government agencies to ensure children who rely on school meals have access to food outside of the classroom.

    The Houston Food Bank is asking that local residents assist those who do not have reserves of food in the event of service disruptions and closures.

    "Hundreds of thousands of people are counting on the organization and its partners now, and this need will only heighten if the COVID-19 situation worsens," says Brian Greene, president/CEO of Houston Food Bank.

    Throughout the coming weeks, we are giving YOU both 20% OFF your entire order AND 30% OF ALL PROCEEDS from your purchase will go directly to the Houston Food Bank (a partner of Feeding America)!

    Shop 20% off site-wide until May 1st with code: COMMUNITY

    We are all in this together — so let’s rally together as a community and support those in desperate need! Please join our efforts in fighting hunger during this critical time! 

     

    "Praise be to the Father of mercies and God of ALL comfort, who comforts us in our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 

     

     Whether you choose to shop with us or not, we greatly appreciate ANY and all donations to help! To donate directly to Houston Food Bank or Feeding America and their COVID-19 efforts, click here:

    2 Timothy 1:7

    Celebrating TEN YEARS of Golden Thread!

    10 Year Anniversary from Jennifer Welker on Vimeo.

    Born on the floor of our townhome TEN YEARS ago today, I couldn’t have imagined where the Lord would take us or how He would transform a small dream into a such a large blessing!  Without the loving support of my family, my friends, my team and our loyal customers, fans and prayer warriors, none of this would even matter. This company was founded on the verse Psalm 115:1 and through it all, it still remains our heartbeat and purpose:

    “Not to us, not to us, Oh Lord, but to YOUR Name be the glory, because of Your love and faithfulness!”

    The brand was born out of my life-long passion for jewels, style, and all things regal, feminine and timeless. Our mantra has been to pair chic trends with enduring classics while maintaining a strong focus on quality, innovation, sophistication and affordable style — and it still rings true today!

    We've grown from working on the floor of our guest bedroom to having our own Showroom and being in hundreds of stores around the country (including Saks Fifth Avenue)! Oh the joy of watching your “baby” grow!

    Don’t be fooled though — we’ve had SO many up and downs. Truly, the highest of highs and the ultimate lowest of lows. I’ve tried and fallen flat on my face. I’ve failed at so many things repeatedly! Thankfully —in God’s economy, a “valley of trouble is a DOORWAY of HOPE!” (Hosea 2:15) A doorway, that with Him, leads to wondrous and abundant places! He is ALWAYS mightily faithful to redeem, remake, resurrect and transform!

    “But this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord NEVER ceases; His mercies are NEW every morning; great is HIS faithfulness!" (Lamentations 3:21-23)

    Our small business has been full of so many challenges and struggles, yet filled with countless triumphs, adventures and feats! It has all been SO worth it!!! I just ADORE what I do — it is such a blessing and brings my heart so much fulfillment!

    When I left being a nurse in the NICU to pulling the trigger on this life-long creative dream, I was both elated and scared stepping into the unknown. But HIS faithfulness has carried us every step of the way. The Lord keeps me on my knees — keeps me humbly clinging to Him through it all! This is all about Him, anyway — for His Kingdom, for His Fame, for His Glory! All the success doesn’t hold a candle to WHO God is and what HE brings into your heart and life. Lasting JOY only stems from one place and it is at the foot of the cross!

    “He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a NEW song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:1-4)

    God has radically transformed my life — both personally and professionally —these last 10 years! Refined by fire, to say it lightly! Several years ago, we took a leap of faith and began developing and designing jewelry that points people to Jesus — that tells of His endless love, ceaseless mercy, never-ending pursuit of our hearts — that speaks of His redemptive power and life-transforming goodness and grace through my own testimony and now, ministry of jewelry!! This portion of our website is called our Biblical Truth-Shop — it’s become a one-stop-shop dedicated to The Truth — filled with jewelry, scripture cards, coloring sheets, gifts and kits! All to point you to the Gospel — the beauty of His everlasting grace and unending magnificent love for you — to breath His life into your day, proclaim His hope over your circumstances, and to bring His replenishment, nourishment and intimacy into your daily life! On-trend jewels paired with custom-made watercolor calligraphy scripture cards! Wearable reminders that are full of Purpose, personalization, encouragement! Each piece is jam-packed with HOPE, life, strength, protection, purpose, encouragement, provision, confidence and joyous expectation of what we can count on IN HIM! This dainty and feminine collection is built upon encouraging and empowering women towards His Truth, in speaking words of life over one another and enriched with the Gospel, grace and wearable reminders of God’s faithfulness! Our prayer is that you receive His immovable certainties, speak Truth over yourself, and share it with others.



    Second only to my passion for the Lord, my family and jewelry is my profound love for CELEBRATING! I’m a cheerleader through and through and oh how we LOVE to celebrate over here! So, today wouldn’t be complete without us rejoicing in some of the fabulous fun we have gotten to partake in over the years! Pinch-Me moments include being worn by Taylor Swift, Pippa Middleton, Emma Stone, Lupita Nyong’o, and Anna Kendrick to name a few — being featured in WWD, Vogue, In Style, People Style Watch and on the TODAY Show also contribute in maximum ways to the surreal-ness! WHAT a tremendous gift! It is truly an honor of a lifetime to be able to design for ministries and non-profits such as IF gathering, Lysa Terkeurst’s Proverbs 31 Ministries, Family Legacy, Scarlet & Gold, and Stand Up 2 Cancer — to even sharing my full testimony on Jamie Ivey’s The Happy Hour! My gosh — I just stand in awe as how the Lord has opened up EVERY single door! I’m amazed every time — how the Lord can use the ugliest and grossest parts about us for good —  that He can bring glory to His Name from them and through them! (Genesis 50:20)

    Y'all, I’m THRILLED for ALL that is next! We are venturing in to new creative-territory as we expand our line of accessories into more inspiring and charming pieces! Think of us as your comprehensive exquisite-accessory-chauffeur! The perfect extension of our existing Golden Thread staples and brand. Spring is going to bring some BIG, chic, exciting, trendy and BRIGHT things, ladies! Be on the look out and spread the word!

    Eeeeekk!!! Golden Thread is TEN YEARS old TODAY!!! I cannot get over it! BIG things in-store — celebrations galore and lots of FAB FUN headed your way because we wouldn’t be ANYWHERE without you and your continued support since 2010! We are SO thankful for YOU and want to treat you with ALL types of goodies!

    Celebrating and rejoicing with SO much gratitude at these TEN YEARS of Golden Thread! Expectant and thrilled for what’s around the corner! Happy Birthday to us! We wouldn’t be any where without YOU!

    Thank you for celebrating 10 years of God weaving His blessings into a Golden Thread,
