Breastplate of the High Priest Necklace, 12 Stones, Sterling Silver, Exodus 28:17, Swarovski Crystal, Jewish
I was inspired to create this necklace by the twelve stones in the Breast Plate of the High Priest, the Breast Plate worn by the high priest (Breast Plate of Aaron) from the Book of Exodus in the Bible (Exodus 28:17)
Instead of using gemstones, I used brilliant Swarovski Crystal and 925 Sterling Silver, to create a sparkly, colourful necklace full of lots of movement as well as symbolism.
God told Moses to make a breast plate set with twelve stones, three rows of four, set in gold, for his brother Aaron to use as the high Priest. Each stone was engraved with the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.
Exodus 28:17 Then mount four rows of precious stones on it. The first row shall be carnelian, chrysolite and beryl; 18 the second row shall be turquoise, lapis lazuli and emerald; 19 the third row shall be jacinth, agate and amethyst; 20 the fourth row shall be topaz, onyx and jasper.[b] Mount them in gold filigree settings. 21 There are to be twelve stones, one for each of the names of the sons of Israel, each engraved like a seal with the name of one of the twelve tribes. (NIV version)
I used heavy gauge sterling silver wire to create each row with three 4mm round Swarovski Crystals, in colours to represent the original gemstones. I connect the for rows of crystals to the sparkly flat cable link chain and then added a cross (10mm long) and six pointed star (8mm long) to represent the star of David. The measurement from the top row of crystals to the base of the cross is (3cm) 1 3/16”. And the width of this movable pendant is (18cm) 11/16”.
This necklace would be a wonderful gift for someone who loves history or for someone who wants to celebrate their faith.
