The Shekinah Collection has expanded – expanding farther than I ever could have imagined. But isn’t that how God works? He works in mysterious and unexpected ways. The Adayah Necklace is such an example.
Shortly, after Alethia Hudson, my spiritual mentor, owner of AYH Designs and founder of the Sew Much Talent Community, began wearing my signature Shekinah necklace, she said on one of her Periscopes that she never leaves home without her her cloud of witness.
Can you say inspiration?
When I sketched this Great Cloud of Witness necklace, I was awe-struck. I knew exactly how it would fall. I didn’t even think about when I would make it. I knew I had to make it.
As you know, I am serious about giving my pieces the right names. I researched and found the Hebrew name Adayah – meaning God’s witness. That was it.
When I made to for the first time I was so moved that I started to cry. Literally! My kids were like, “Momma are you crying over that necklace?” I couldn’t help it. It was beautiful to me.
I hope it is beautiful to you, too!
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,” Hebrew 12:1
What is the great cloud of witness? It is the collective of spiritual patriarchs and matriarchs – the one’s we read about in the Bible, the ones who we read about in history books, the ones in our personal lives who have gone on the Glory. They are our spiritual cheerleaders as we run this Christian race. The ones who bear witness to our life challenges and testimonies. The one’s who say we made it and you can, too!
The Adayah “Great Cloud of Witness” Necklace is a reminder of them and the charge for us all to keep running this race and focusing on the end game. The heavenly reward.
The Adayah necklace is made using sterling silver or 14kt gold-filled wire that is sculpted by hand into beautiful cloud shapes and then textured to create a dazzling effect. The clouds cascade forming an overlapping wave affect. The necklace is available in 14kt gold-filled, sterling silver and tri-color.
