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.

To see detailed photos or the beads I have chosen to reflect lines of the oratorio please click here: Telling the Story of Handel's Messiah

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.

    Truly unique piece of jewelry

    Posted by Merrily Taylor on 12 18 2017

    "The Messiah" is my favorite piece of music - I can (and do) listen to it at any time of the year. When I saw this bracelet, I knew I had to have it and I was not disappointed. Not only is it beautiful and eye-catching, but its symbolism in terms of the music is perfect. Next week I'm going to a performance in Philadelphia and I will most certainly wear this wonderful, colorful, well- madebracelet.

    Perfect gift for any “Messiah” lover

    This is a wonderful bracelet! Especially “noteworthy” is the card included that explains the portion of “Messiah” that is represented by each bead or charm. I bought one as a gift, and I’d love one for myself some day. An exceptionally classy and meaningful piece of jewelry.

    A Classic piece for an Annual Classic Messiah

    Posted by Robin Pollock on 12 12 2017

    Having sun Messiah for 16 years, this bracelet was a must have. I think the choice of beads and the charms really depict this wonderful music. In particular I love the inclusion of the trumpet as the Trumpet solo is my favorite bit in the Messiah. I will be doing my 17th performance this weekend and can't wait to wear my new bracelet at both performances.
