And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. - 2 Kings 5:9-10
I love the flashes of color light creates as it passes through Opal. I like to think of this as the energy that helps to release and balance our emotions and encourages healing, peace and love. The number seven is referenced 700 times in the Bible.The prophet Elisha uses the number seven when he instructs Naaman, the leper, to bathe in the Jordan River seven times to be healed. The three sets of seven sterling silver beads reminds us of the seven healing miracles that Jesus performed on the Sabbath, or, the seventh day of the week.
A Sterling Silver Cross and three sets of Sterling Silver Beads, each set seven beads in honor of the Prophet Elisha, are surrounded by over 50 faceted Peruvian Opals. Sterling Silver Beads and a Sterling Silver Lobster Clasp completes the work.
