The Handel's Messiah Bracelet represents moments of the oratorio with symbolic beads and charms. Makes a meaningful gift for classical music lovers, fans of choral music and anyone who considers Messiah to be a holiday tradition. 

Using text directly from the King James Bible and composed in under a month, Messiah is Handel's most familiar work and his Hallelujah Chorus is one of the most recognizable pieces of music ever created.

Each bead and charm of the Messiah Bracelet represents a moment from the oratorio. Some of the most important beads and charms are described below and you can see all of the symbolic descriptions on the spiral chart photo. Also, a story chart explaining the symbolism of the beads and charms accompanies every bracelet. Click here to see the chart.

    Love it! As a musician, I have played and/or sung in performances of this wonderful oratorio many times. The bracelet is a lovely reminder of all the passion and beauty of the music.

    I ordered this Messiah bracelet to commemorate my reconnection to choral singing. When it didn't arrive when expected, I emailed Cynthia who was willing to ship me a replacement ASAP so it would be there for Christmas. Fortunately, I checked my mailbox and found the box way in the back where I hadn't seen it at night when I check my mail. It is extremely well crafted and made with glass beads and lovely charms. I definitely would love to purchase more
