About our Jewelry
Welcome to our Store.Define Yourself, Be Strong and Courageous!
How do you define yourself to the world around you? The world today says that you have to follow the fashion trend in order to be cool, popular, or pretty, and if you don't follow the trend you will be shunned from society. But why would you become the same as everyone around you with no individuality or diversity. Why do we always want to 'fit in' with the crowd? Here at Faith Expressions, we want you to wear jewelry that defines You. What is the message you want to convey with what you wear?
Be Strong and Courageous! Don't be afraid to step out into the world and declare who your are and what you believe. Jewelry can help open the doors and share that message. Our goal is to help give you the confidence to be able to do just that, and define who you are.
What is the Star of David?
The Star of David today is the prominent symbol of the Jewish people and the land of Israel. It appears on many items of Jewish origin from calendars and jewelry to Israel’s national flag. When we wear a Star of David on our jewelry we are identifying with the Land of Israel, and the roots of our faith and the roots of our Savior Jesus Christ.
For those of us who are Jewish Christians, the Star of David takes on an additional meaning. When a Jew receives Jesus as his Messiah, he doesn't lose his Jewishness; but rather he comes to appreciate his ancient heritage and faith in a new and deeper way . . . Now he personally knows the One for whom the Fathers, Prophets, the Jews and all of Israel have so eagerly waited for so long. We are also proud to identify with the Jewish people and the nation Israel . To us the Star of David represents our commitment to our Jewish heritage and to God's promised land.
According to the Encyclopedia Judaica, the Star of David did not originate with the Jewish people. Many civilizations,perhaps as far as Mesopotamia and Britain , may have used this symbol. The oldest use of the star dates back to the 7th century where it was first found in Sidon . By the 19th century, the Star of David became the official symbol of the Jewish people. The Zionist movement adopted the Star of David as its symbol which would someday be on the national flag of Israel .
Jesus (Yeshua) was a Jew, Mary was a Jew, and the disciples were also all Jews. The early believers assembled as Messianic Jewish congregations. Romans 11:11-24 clearly states that as Christian believers, all are grafted in . . . to the people of Israel. The Star of David is a visual reminder of our roots, and the Cross is a visual reminder of our redemption through Christ, and Him alone.
