It is very hard to come up with an idea that has not been done.

Inspired by idea

Post by Winstone » Thu Jun 25, 2009 10:43 am

I have been inspired by this idea and am exploring New Testament quotes to use as a faith trigger for wearers of braille jewelry. This may have been done, but what an idea. From Saint John, we get the idea; "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son...."
To illustrate this powerful idea of faith, I have made a cross with GOD going across where the arms would be and LOVE going down the Latin cross which in braille becomes this faith trigger =
GOD + LOVE = JESUS [Jesus is implied] the idea is to create a trigger for the wearer as well as observers. I am also working on other ideas.
I throw this out, to see what other millers will do with this same idea. I find it most exciting to create faith triggers within a standard shape, that helps to start faith conversations, thoughts, and actions. Sharing this excitement is one way to grow, and see what others do with a similar idea.
Thanks again for sharing. I hope my reply adds to this wonderful idea.
