New bracelet and necklace
I am posting a better picture of the 12 tribes or Salvation bracelet.
12 Tribes Bracelet
12 SONS OF ISRAEL/JACOB
So He named him Israel. God also said to him: I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply. A nation, indeed an assembly of nations, will come from you, and kings will descend from you. The land that I gave to Abraham and Isaac I will give to you. And I will give the land to your descendants after you. Genesis 35:10-12
The Twelve Tribes of Israel are the sons of Jacob. God renamed Jacob Israel.
His twelve sons became to the Nation. The breastplate of the High Priest had four rows of stones and the Hebrew letters of the Twelve Tribes/Sons of Israel inscribed on them.
The breastplate was first worn by the High Priest Aaron, and subsequently worn by every High Priest in the Temple while performing holy duties.
There were 12 precious stones mentioned in the Book of Exodus. The Twelve Tribes and stones are as follows: Carnelian-Dan; Topaz-Simeon; Red Garnet-Judah; Emerald-Levi; Sapphire-Issacher; Crystal-Zebulun; Opal-Ruben; Agate-Nephtali; Amethyst-Gad; Aquamarine-Asher; Onyx-Joseph; Jasper-Benjamin
The 12 silver spacers represent the 12 tribes of Israel that were written on the 12 gates (Rev 21:12)
The Cross symbolizes Jesus. For whoever is thirty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Rev 21:17) With Him we will find our strength, through Him we will have eternal life.
The colored beads symbolize the 12 precious stones that decorated the 12 foundations of the city walls. (Rev 21:19)
Go now and live in love. Spread the seed of faith as He has requested, for He is coming soon! (Rev 21:20)
I am also posting a picture of a necklace for my BFF Tijuana Buchanan of Senatobia, MS. Her husband Joe made the beads. I hope she enjoys wearing this.
I am a retired Registered Nurse. I started making jewelry as a hobby. It has now turned into an obsession. I am orginally from Greenville, MS which is in the delta. That's where I came up with the name Delta Jewelry Design. I am still a Mississippi girl at heart. I am married, have no kids or pets. I stay busy all the time either making jewelry, playing Mah Jongg, sewing or reading.
